How To Make An Easy Summer Wreath

I love to make stuff, but try not to take on big projects because a lot of the time I make a big mess and never finish the project. I blame it on my low tolerance for patience. I am much better friends with words than with crafting adventures. But, I found this fun summer umbrella wreath on Pinterest (note: follow me if you would like! I adore being inspired by all of you) a few weeks ago and made it last night. I cannot take any credit for how creative and BRILLIANT this is, here is the link to the original. Show her some love. Her blog is incredible!

This wreath is so easy you might laugh. However, I think it is adorable!

Here is what you need:

Super easy, right? 
A grapevine wreath and package of little toothpick umbrellas.
I could have done it with one package but I wanted to
make sure I had plenty.
I picked up both the wreath and the umbrella toothpicks
at Hobby Lobby 
(my new obsession! One recently opened 5 minutes from me.)
for $4.99 a piece.

Then all you do is stick the umbrella (or if you are feeling sassy and fancy, parasols)
in the little nooks of the wreath.

Keep going until they overlap.


Darling and festive.
Makes me want to runaway with R and S
to a secluded beach far away
bask in the sun
while sipping on yummy liquid calories. ;)
I'm in loveLOVElove!
