Carnival Summer Wreath | An easy diy wreath in rustic style! Perfect for a carnival party or just to brighten up your front door!
Have you heard? I’m kind of a theme nut.
And by nut, I mean that when people leave my themed out kids’ birthday parties they are usually saying thank you and questioning my sanity in the same breath.
This year, we are throwing a carnival themed party for Quinn’s second birthday.
A few things about this theme.
One. I have been forbidden to call it a “Circus Theme” because Nathan finds almost everything about the circus creepy and terrifying.
Two. It’s really only a “Carnival Theme” because having a “Fuchsia & Turquoise Theme” sounds . . . well, stupid.
I’m 100% obsessed with Fuchsia & Turquoise. And like all good moms I’m totally using my child’s birthday party to run with my obsession.
Well, sure. I mean it’s totally normal to make a wreath that is going to coordinate with your baby’s birthday decor, right?
Have you noticed how popular the rustic look as become? Burlap, pennants, mason jars? Yes, yes, and yes! I love it all!
So this wreath is right in line with that. The flowers are super simple and made from some wire lined yarn that I got off the clearance rack at Michael’s. You just wrap them around themselves until you get a flower shape you like, then shove a pushpin through them and into the wreath. It’s a straw wreath with the plastic still on, wrapped in burlap. And the little “Welcome” sign was made with my Silhouette Designer Software (more on that July 1st!!).
Happy Fuchsia & Turquoise Carnival!
