Summer Potting Wreath

This is what I started with. I ended up changing the flowers and adding a birdhouse.

I made this backyard garden wreath using all dollar store items at a cost of $8.00.

I started off with a pool noodle and duct taped it together then wrapped it in taupe fabric.  Since this was going to be large, I knew it would take a lot of work and materials to fill in, so I decided to wander around the dollar store and find larger items and came up with a potting theme.

The pots were three for a dollar and were attached with jute, and the garden tools were three for a dollar twenty-five and were attached in the same way.  The bird was two dollars and hot glued and then wrapped with raffia to resemble a nest.

I put the Gerbera daisies on stems and hot glued them in the pots and stuffed them with raffia.

There are five or six types of greenery which I had on hand.

I ended up adding the birdhouse which I had purchased last summer for $2 at the dollar store and had stained and changed the roof.  I drilled two holes at the back and attached it with wire.

I am in complete love with this one!


  1. I so adore this wreath! I just pinned it to my birdhouse board!

  2. I LOVE this wreath! I love the birdhouse, green flowers, bird nest, and the garden tools. I often put birdhouses on my own wreaths. I'm pinning this!

  3. Your wreath is so cute, you did great job filling in the spaces, love the variety of flowers, pots and birdhouse is my very favorite. It is a big wreath compared to others, like the bigger size for a change. Happy Weekend.

    1. Thank you so much. The wall it's hanging from is a large space, so the bigger wreath seemed like a good idea. Have a good week!

  4. Linda, I just wrote a post about Gerbera Daisies and featured your wreath as part of it, with a link back to your post. My readers will love it.
    The post is scheduled to go live next Thursday July 25.
