DIY Sunflower Wreath

Woo Hoo Sunflowers ! They are blooming in our yard right now , so I thought it was time to take down the daisy wreath and make a sunflower wreath..
 I used 3 bunches of sunflowers and just pulled the flowers off the stems and hot glued them into a grapevine wreath. I added a few of the leaves just scattered around and hot glued. I layed out all the sunflowers before I started glueing so I made sure it was pretty even. The bunches I got had a couple different sizes of sunflowers. I got them at Michaels , they were $7.99 a bunch and 40 % off right now theres a coupon for 20% more off your total purchase.
 Couldn't have been easier ! I also added a black and white burlap check ribbon to hang it ..

 It looks summery , but you could also go into early fall with this wreath.
 I have sunflowers blooming in the vegetable garden that peek over the fence into the front yard .. This planting area is new this year , I love the hydrangea tree... There are 2 incrediball hydrangeas on the right side of the tree and all the way on the end is a pinky winky hydrangea thats starting to bloom ! Can't wait to see it fully bloomed ! I still need more perrenials and mulch , but for now it is looking pretty good !
 The sunflowers in the garden .. even a red one on the end.
 I have alot of sunflowers that the birds and chipmunks plant for me , and all these in this coneflower patch are planted by the animals..

 My zinnias are looking fabulous , I have so many patches of them growing ..wish I had acres of them growing !

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I will be back later this week to show you my blue puffy flower blanket , that is finally finished !

I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Lovely wreath. Your garden looks divine. Sunflowers are such happy flowers and they make everyone smile. I just did a sunflower tablescape. Happy Tuesday.

Gorgeous blooms and wreath Priscilla! I need to make one. I have lots of sunflowers blooming out front. Planted there by the birds. Only one has a huge head, but still I love their cheery face! I have a Limelight Hydrangea tree and it is ready to bloom any day. I have an Incrediball that I planted new last year. It only had one bloom. Can't wait till it gets bigger and full of blooms. I also have a Str. Van. Hydrangea that is two years old and full of blooms this year. My friend has a pinky winky tree and three bushes. They are gorgeous! I love Zinnias and want to plant even more next year.
Thanks for sharing with SYC.
