Summer Bicycle Wreath

Happy Monday! I’m running behind today! We spent the weekend in Austin celebrating my little sister’s graduation from the University of Texas {Hook’em!}. It was a fun, exciting, busy, exhausting weekend! You can bet on InstaFriday being very burnt orange this week. :) This was the first of 3 Austin trips I’ll be making this month….so, yes…coffee will be happening. A lot.

Can you believe Memorial Day weekend is already upon us? The official unofficial start of summer. It’s already feeling good and hot here as we’re already reaching temps in the 90’s, so I felt like it was time to switch out my spring wreath for a summery one.

I started out by wrapping a wreath form in some grosgrain ribbon in a red and white chevron pattern that I found at Hobby Lobby. I’ve made a few yarn wreaths before, but I had never wrapped one in ribbon. Oh my goodness – I am sold on wrapping wreaths in ribbon! It took so much less time!

I also found this metal bicycle at Hob Lob. They were running a 50% sale on metal that week, so I snatched it up with thoughts of yellow spray paint running through my mind.

Once I gave it a few coats of a pale yellow spray paint, I attached it to the wreath with some hot glue. The bicycle is pretty light weight, but I still wanted to reinforce it with some ribbon in case the glue were to come loose with the Texas heat. I had a spool of a thin matching ribbon. I discreetly tied each wheel to wreath. You can hardly see it unless you’re looking very hard.

I was seriously doing a dance around the house once I finished. I am IN LOVE. It’s definitely the quirkiest wreath I’ve put together. The colors and the addition of the bike scream summer to me !

Of course, one thing led to another, and I restyled the entire front porch for summer…but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see what I’ve done! I’m excited to share it with you! :)

I hope y’all have a wonderful Monday and I’ll see you back tomorrow for the porch reveal!

Update : Apparently great minds think alike! Check out Jen’s {from Craft-o-Matic} Summer Bicycle Wreath that she made! It is super cute!
