Be My Guest: Fox Hollow Cottage

Hello everyone! I’m still working on getting caught up and I have one final guest today. Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage always amazes me with her beautiful diy home projects and spot-on décor. Today she has us dreaming of the islands with this adorable summer beachy project.  

Aloha Homework Readers!

I'm Shannon and I'm sharing a little island style Aloha Wreath with you today!
Summer is officially here.. and who doesn't love Hawaii?
In celebration of the season and my love for the islands, I whipped this up!

Aloha Summer Pool Noodle Wreath Craft DIY Summer Door Decor
And you can too.
The base is a Pool Noodle. Secured in a circle with clear packing tape.
Then wrapped with strips of fabric, secured with a glue gun, with all seams on the back.

Aloha Summer Flip Flop Pool Noodle DIY Wreath Craft
I used some on the flip flops from the Dollar Tree on each side. Popped a little washi tape on then for fun, then strung up a little mini banner between the two.
You can use about anything to make the banners on this style of wreath.
I used a tiny snippet of fabric and some paper tags with washi tape.
Even simply knotting some fabric like I did here, is great trick if you like things easy!

It reminds me of Hawaii.
I can almost hear the waves now...
Each flip flop has a tiny fabric flower - They are so cute, and I love the accent.
Once you make one, you'll be able to make them in a snap!
I added a bow and glued a starfish right in the middle to top it off.
I felt like it completed the "beachy vibe".

I keep my little slice of Hawaii on a shelf.
In my home. Nice and safe.
My silly Oregon weather is just too unpredictable and my front door not protected enough.
I have to say... Carolyn makes some amazing crafts, I was a little intimidated to share mine, so thanks for letting me visit today!
