A Garden Hose Wreath???…

Yes…that’s what I said…A Garden Hose Wreath…

I saw a wreath similar to this hanging on the door of a neighbor several years ago. I always wanted to make

one..so I thought, hmmm, I will make one for my very first Front Porch Link Party at Pamelas

I gathered the following materials…

I used some old vintage garden tools, a dollar store pair of gloves and mini terra cotta pots…

I used a terra cotta paint pen on the pots..

Geraniums are always safe to place on the plant hanger..the deer hate them..their loss, my definite gain!

  1. What a neat idea. You’re so creative! And your flowers are beautiful! Happy Spring!

  2. OMG that is utterly hysterical!!! I am loving Ralphie!! Your pouch is beautiful! I am in envy of how large it is and your double front door. Thanx for coming to my Porch Party. Oh and your hose wreaths are fab!!

  3. Oh your porch just puts my to shame, shame, shame. It is dusty and dirty and needs a good cleaning. My pitiful flower boxes have dead plants and there are cobbies in the corner. My front porch is anything from welcoming right now. I love the garden hose wreaths. I saw some similiar a few years ago and blogged about it, but have never made one. I just might have to make one this year. Yours is much prettier. I just love your garden wagon and how you change it out. Your home is so beautiful. I can’t wait to see it in person hopefully soon. :) Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. So fantastic. Everything is so green. We are slowly emerging from the winter doldrums. It is nice to see something so green and with flowers. Thanks for sharing.
    Love the wreaths especially neat. Blessings, Ginger

  5. Awesome curb appeal! Everything looks so fresh and ready for Spring.

    The garden hose wreaths are adorable. They are a great welcome sign for spring. I am so envious of all of the flowers and color but it is just way too early for that here. I’m just glad that this week the temps will be in the 60′s. With that, I’ll tolerate the brown.

  7. Oh my word Shirley, this is the cutest thing I have ever seen. Your yard is gorgeous and I love the yard art that you have. Beautiful curb appeal. Hugs, marty

  8. These are so cute. I did see something like them at CB once…loved it then too! Your front porch, well, frankly your whole house is spectacular!

  9. Your porch looks wonderful, all decked out for Spring! We Northerners are nowhere close to Spring or porch sitting. We would be freezing our bejeezers off! So I will just have to be GREEN with envy!:)

  10. What a lovely porch! I love the hose wreaths. Very cute. Actually I love everything.

  11. Your wreath is just adorable! Love, love, love it! The front of your house is so pretty too. Where in the world are you already finding geraniums? I haven’t seen any around here yet. Tell Ralphie that Suzy says “Hey!”. ;o)

  12. Where do I begin…..I want to tell you how beautiful all your spring decor is, but I can’t stop thinking about that huge pink Easter bunny :) Seriously, I love those garden hose wreaths! Such a clever idea!

    blessings,
    karianne

  13. Adorable! Your big pink bunny is precious! I just love your wreaths- another amazing idea!

  14. I LOVE the garden hose wreath!!!!! I also like your pineapple sitting by the wagon. Thanks for sharing.

  15. You have been really busy. Love your SPRING look …so fresh and inviting.

    Sharon @ mrs. hines class

  17. I love your hose wreath. I made one too a few years ago, but it’s not as cite as yours. i like the colorful garden gloves as a bow. I’m going to re-do mine. Thanks for the inspiration.

  18. Love the look! I’ve been meaning to make one like this and never got around to it. I love the double wreaths on the doors : )

  19. A garden hose wreath! How fun and clever. And you see, I was trying to come up with something clever for my front door and was thinking of making a Spring wreath from springs ….

    But the garden hose? Brilliant!
    :)

    Linda

  20. What a fun and beautiful post! I love the garden hose wreaths and the vintage wagon! I still have my son’s and it planted with herbs! Can’t get rid of it even thought it’s missing some wheels! Your porch is gorgeous and I love the bunny suit!
    Miss Bloomers

  21. I am going to imitate this wreath. It will be perfect on my garden shed. Thanks for the idea. I have never seen anything like it. I will give credit to you when I get compliments!

  22. I love this!!! What a great idea! I love your porch , those cute pineapple lights and the wagon, I even have the same rusty chippy bird! Thanks for sharing

  23. This garden wreath was a really cute idea and I loved all your beautiful flower photos too!

  42. Oh. My. Goodness. I thought I was just going to see how to make that cute garden hose wreath and then I get treated to all kinds of porch-wonderfulness. Everything is just fabulous and what a cute ending with Ralphie in the Easter bunny outfit…TOO cute. I saw your post via it being featured from the “Sunday Showcase Party”.

  43. Jacqueline says:

  46. I’m so excited to see your garden hose wreath! We had one burst a week or so ago and haven’t disposed of it yet. I love this idea for reusing it. Another life for an otherwise unreusable item. Thank you!

  47. With havin so much written content do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content
    I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over
    the web without my agreement. Do you know any methods
    to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate
    it.
