Summer Rope Wreath

It is time to take down the spring wreath and put up the summer wreath. In our last house I rarely had a wreath, now in this house it seems funny not to have one. Maybe because our last door was solid and this one has a window.

I love nautical looking things for home decor but it feels funny to have much in the house. We live pretty close to a large lake but this isn't a beach house or anything. But for my summer wreath it is nice to add some rope and american flags.

Here are my supplies:

The wreath is from Walmart, I think it is less than $3. I have used a pool noodle before but the rope is too heavy and it doesn't stay a circle for long. These are so cheap they are my go to wreath forms now. The rope is also from Walmart in the hardware department and is about $5.

I love how this wreath turned out. I used hot glue to secure the rope and had to overlap every once in a while to get the rope straight again.  I tucked the flags under a piece of rope and then hot glued them as well. I used some ribbon I already had and just wrapped it around the wreath and tied a knot.

I am all ready for summer now, at least at the front door.

I love decorating with flags outside, especially when it gets closer to the 4th of July. It will be here before we know it. Do you have a favorite summer wreath? Do you add flags to celebrate the 4th?
