Summer Layout for my Vintage Sign Holder

I had fun creating a quick summer layout for my vintage sign holder. 

You can see how it all came together by watching the following YouTube video. 

For my supplies, I just used the Seaside collection from October Afternoon and the "Sail Away with me" cut file from the Silhouette Cameo store. 

I added a few stickers from the sticker sheets and then glued down the die cut. 

So easy, but fun and pretty. 

Here is a look at my hall way hutch where I like to place the vintage sign holder. 

I used the same paper collection to make three pinwheels. 

I hot glued them onto some dowel rods that I had in my stash and then placed them in this apothecary jar filled with colored jewels. 

I added this nautical yarn wreath that I made a couple of years ago. 

I also added three vintage cameras from my stash. 

This completes my summer hallway hutch. 

I had fun putting this summer decor together. 

I hope you are inspired to decorate for the summer too!

Hugs, Shelly

DIY Summer Pinwheel Wreath

I have a DIY Summer Pinwheel Wreath to share with you today. 
I wanted to create a new summer wreath for my front door. 

I was inspired by all of the pretty pinwheels that I found on Pinterest. 

You can see how I put this wreath together by watching the following YouTube video. 

Here are the supplies that I used. 

I had everything on hand except for the 16 inch foam wreath form. 

I used some scrapbook paper collection called Seaside from October Afternoon. 

First, I painted the wreath form with some Americana paint color in Indian Turquoise. 

I also pulled some brads from my stash that I will use to hold the pinwheels together. 

I used a pinwheel cut from the Silhouette online store to cut my pinwheels. 

Here is a close up look at my completed pinwheel with a brad.

I then used my glue gun to glue the pinwheels around my wreath form. 

To hang my wreath, I pulled some red striped ribbon from Stampin Up that was in my stash. 

I love how colorful this looks on my red front door!

This was so inexpensive since I used mostly existing items from my stash and it was easy and quick to put together. 

Thank you for looking!

Hugs, Shelly
