One Wreath, Three Months

Back in June, I saw several initial wreaths on Pinterest.  I knew I wanted one of these and thought they couldn't be too hard or expensive to make.  I wanted mine to be versatile and change it up every month like I do with the decorations in my house.  The first month was June.  My theme for June is spring flowers and birds.  I picked up a grapevine wreath at Dollar Tree, some fabric daisies, and a wooden letter H from Hobby Lobby, using my handy cell phone app for their 40% off coupon.  I painted the letter a cream color.

In July, I went back to HL for some red, white, and blue flowers (because that's the theme for July in my house) and another H. It was painted red (which will turn out to be useful later). Used my cell phone coupon again. Boom!

I wrote about this one in a post you can find here.

And now it's August.  My house is all about sunflowers in August.  They are my favorite flower and are blooming everywhere at this time of year.  Back to HL to nab one of these ginormous burlap sunflowers.  Cell phone coupon thrice used!  I used the previous beige H from June.


I'm good for another month!  This is about as easy as it gets which is exactly the way I like my crafts.
