Create this easy and beautiful DIY Patriotic Floral Summer Wreath to decorate your door. Welcome summer with flowers, greenery, and a touch of red, white, and blue!
Summer is almost here and I am ready to welcome and embrace this new season!
One way of welcoming the season into your home is with a wreath. I love making wreaths and enjoy hanging seasonal wreaths in my home and on my front and back doors. To me, this lovely decoration is so inviting!
Recently, I joined my friend Kelly from The Tattered Pew for the Bloggers’ Best Home Tours, where I shared Simple Patriotic Summer Decor. Instead of a traditional red, white, and blue wreath, I decided to make one with florals.

- 18 inch grapevine wreath
- wire cutters
- garland (I used Green Mini Ficus Garland from Hobby Lobby.)
- zip ties
- artificial florals of your choice (I used two of these white hydrangeas branches, one red poppy bush, both from Michaels, as well as one green boxwood and berry bush, and one navy molopospermum bush, both from Hobby Lobby.)
- Gorilla® Dual Temp Full Size Hot Glue Gun
- Gorilla® Full Size Hot Glue Sticks
Easy Step by Step Wreath Assembly
- Lay your garland on top of the grapevine wreath. Then, using zip ties, attach the garland to a piece of the grapevine. Pull the zip tie tight to secure the garland. Clip off any excess piece of the zip tie.
- Cut apart the hydrangea branches, leaving a couple of inches of stem. Arrange the hydrangeas on the wreath.
- When you are happy with the placement, bend the stem and add some hot glue. Tuck the stem into the wreath. BE VERY CAREFUL when using hot glue! I highly recommend using these hot glue finger protectors. You may also want to use a popsicle stick to tuck and press the stems into the wreath.
- Repeat the process for adding the boxwood and berry bush, the navy molopospermum bush, and the red poppies.
- When finished, make a hanger from twine or floral wire. Attach it to the back of the wreath.
- Hang and Enjoy!
Wreath Making Tips
- Before you begin, prepare your grapevine wreath by snipping off any excess pieces of grapevine.
- I highly recommend using these hot glue finger protectors.
- You may also want to use a popsicle stick to tuck and press the stems into the wreath.

Where can I hang my wreath?
Hang your wreath anywhere you would like a pop of summer color. Hang it on an entry door to welcome guests or on an interior door or wall for instant seasonal decor! You may enjoy hanging it on a mirror too!
How much does it cost to make a floral summer wreath?
I like to shop the sales. The grapevine wreath was $6.99, but I was able to purchase all of the greenery and florals on sale at either 40% or 50% off. As a result, this wreath cost about $30 to make.
