Now that the weather is cooperating here in the Midwest, I can start to work on some outdoor projects again. Up till last week, I have had to be satisfied just putting together ideas in my Front Porch and Deck pinboard.
I am aiming to use one of these two color palettes from Design Seeds for my outdoor spaces. Do you have a preference?
If you haven’t already discovered Design Seeds, I am warning you that you will be sucked into the site on your first visit. I don’t start new projects anymore without hitting up Design Seeds for color inspiration first.
The easiest way to add color to the front porch is to update my front porch wreath. I swapped out my stashbusting argyle wreath with a new simple summer wreath.
All I did was wrap a Dollar Tree wreath form with twine (also from DT). While my son was in the tub, I whipped up a few quick ribbon yoyo flowers and embellished them with buttons from the stash I just inherited when my parents moved.
If you weren’t lucky enough to inherit a stash of buttons or if you need some ribbon to match your summer color scheme, hit up Michael’s ASAP! Michael’s frequently has ribbon in $1 bins around the store, and if you click on the ad on my sidebar you get an additional percentage off. Nice, right?
I am hoping to get my flower boxes planted in the next week or two. I am kind of a doofus when it comes to growing flowers. Do you have advice for creating foolproof planters?
