We updated our front porch, which includes a new red chevron burlap wreath.
It was SSTM.
I figure since I always say "Super Simple To Make" with every project I do, I ought to come up with my own acronym.
Here are the supplies I used:
-wire edged burlap chevron ribbon from Hobby Lobby (on sale 1/2 off)
-metal wreath form
-wire (I started with this raffia wrapped wire, but then changed to regular thin gauge wire)
-wire cutters and scissors.
I didn't take step by step photos of this part- but all I did was make a loop of ribbon and wire it to the wreath form. I did this over and over until the wreath form was completely covered. Since the ribbon is wire edged I could move the loops around to make it look the way I wanted. I used 2 3-yard spools of ribbon.
Here is our front porch all freshened up. I spray painted our pot red and got a new rug from Ikea. We also have grapevine ball lights around our front door. It looks so pretty lit up at night.
This is our front garden. I'm not a huge gardener but I'm really happy with the way our front garden looks. I have been putting in new plants for a few years now in hopes it would eventually look like a cottage garden. Most of the flowers are perennials that come back every year. I like to fill in the small empty spots with annuals like petunias and marigolds.
I think all I have left to the front is adding a cushion to the bench on the porch and maybe a few other pots of flowers. Those are projects that will be coming up.
