Repurposed Garden Hose Wreath

It’s almost a new month which means it is almost time for a new wreath on my front door. This time around I went with something I saw on Pinterest years ago: a Repurposed Garden Hose Wreath.

Gray isn’t exactly my first color choice for this, but the whole idea behind my wreaths this year is to make do with what I already have. And I had a pretty badly beaten gray house.

To make this, I started by coiling the hose until I got the dimensions I wanted and tied off the end.

I glued on some seed plastic seed packets (the paper ones will not hold up, I’m sure) and tied on the tools and gloves to finish the look.

My 7 year old was so excited about a new wreath for the door that he almost looked up from his game to see the finished project before he exclaimed “Looks great, Mom” in that monotone “don’t bother me I am playing voice” us Moms know all too well.

Well, I don’t care if he or his dad aren’t interested. I like it. And so does my mommy who got a sneak peek via text! ha ha!
