Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #14 {Muslin Garland Summer Wreaths and Porch}

Happy Friday!

Well, there was no Tropical Storm this week to prevent me from my Friday Feature…just a storm brewing…

…..however, I got the photos taken in time!…

This week my inspiration comes from Holly of Down to Earth Style.

She made a beautiful muslin wreath…


I did not make the entire wreath muslin…I added a muslin garland to my summer wreaths.

…..I took the easy route!


Look how gorgeous Holly’s wreath is!!



I went to Michaels one day and saw these great garlands…so the “light” went on.



I weaved the garland of fabric strips throughout my summer wreath.


June 14th is Flag Day…so I adorned my topiaries with multiple flags…




Years ago, I saw that Martha Stewart placed flags in her planters as I did….

……I loved it and have been doing this for years now.





Thank you Holly for giving me my inspiration for my summer door wreaths….

……I love your many creative projects!

And you can see many of Holly’s projects at Down to Earth Style.

Like this awesome console she made from pallets!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Stay tuned on Sunday and find out how I got my decorating style…

…..and my passion for the symbol of Hospitality!..

  5. The porch and the wreaths are absolutely beautiful, such talent! I love the front porch of this home, those double doors & the window above, the brick pavers, and the topiaries. I think I will hop over to her sight and see what else she has.

  8. And now you are all ready for July 4th and have done it so easily. I wish there were more places here to run pick up things but if TJ Maxx or WalMart doesn’t have it, I’m pretty much out of luck!

  9. I love the additions to your wreath and what a clever addition to your planters. I’m going to grab some flags right now and copy that on my front porch.
