I've been wreath-less since I took down the Easter eggs and have been searching for a summer themed replacement idea ever since. I stumbled upon this post from Resa Likes Colors on how to make patriotic pinwheels. It looked remarkably straight forward, so I decided to give it a try.
While I'm happy with the results, I'm not entirely sure if it is something I'd like to leave up for the entire summer. I think by July 5th, it may look a bit tired. So I decided to go on the hunt for something that will last through the rest of the summer.
I've been a bit obsessed with paper straws lately and haven't really had the opportunity to use them yet. That said, I've been lazer focused on how to use them for a party, not a project. Another eureka moment and a quick Google search and voila! A paper straw wreath. Darn, and I thought I was so unique. Looks like I've got another project on deck! Mr. Squareview is going to think I'm nuts J
