Good morning friends!  Summer is upon us.  The weather is warm, my yard is in bloom, and the kids are off of school.  It’s time to update my front door and bring some of that bright summer fun to my porch.  Some friends of mine are sharing their summer front porches and doors today too, it’s our very first Dose of DIY Blog Hop.  Take a look at my summer wreath and browse these other fabulous posts; Welcome to the Dose of DIY Blog Hop!

Learn how to quickly and easily create pinwheels.  These looks great on a summer burlap wreath.

I chose to use my good old burlap wreath this summer.  This wreath is a work horse, I change up the accessories all the time and have used it all over my house.  You can view the easy tutorial below to see how you can make your own.

For this summer wreath I added some colorful pinwheels and a welcomes sign.  Making pinwheels is pretty straightforward.  I started with double-sided paper, a scissor, and adhesive squares.

I really do love making pinwheels, you can learn how to make a double pinwheel below if you want to get really crafty!

The adhesive squares allowed me to make these pinwheels quickly and easily.  Once they were together I used hot glue to add a button to the center then a little more glue to attach to my wreath.

Easy to make pinwheels, these looks great on a summer burlap wreath.

The welcome sign is cut from white cardstock using my Silhouette {my favorite crafting tool!} and attached with hot glue at a few points.  These items will easily pull off the burlap when I’m done.  Sometimes I have to cut a little but my wreath is still in great shape after many wardrobe changes.
