Add instant curb appeal by making this DIY easy fern & daisy summer wreath. Works on any color door!
Welcome to Part 2 of my summer front porch! I sort of skipped over spring because of everything that was going on with my living and dining room makeover project. I did share a tulip wreath several weeks, ago but that’s as far as I got. So I’m making up for it now with a fresh and easy plan for your porch decor that will take you all the way until fall. I already showed you how to make The Easiest Porch Planters Ever. The next step is the door wreath.
Sometimes I plan things and they work out beautifully…and other times not so much. I had a vision of a simple fern wreath to complement the ferns in the planter boxes. I didn’t want a big wreath that would steal the show so I started out with an 18-inch grapevine wreath, fern garland, wire cutters and wire.
I simply laid the garland around the wreath and secured it with wire in four places. 12 o’clock, 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock. Here is what it looked like:
Not bad I thought…but not great either. I decided to put it on the door and go from there. The minute I hung it up, I knew it needed something. Another layer of ferns? A bow? I really wasn’t sure until I remembered that I had picked up some daisy bushes at a local shop but hadn’t done anything with them yet. I sat on the porch and cut the bushes apart so I had a big pile of daisy stems.
Then I stood in front of the door and randomly stuck them in the wreath, one at a time. They sort of bob around and instantly gave the wreath a full and three-dimensional look.
For not really knowing what I was doing, this fern & daisy summer wreath turned out to be one of my all-time favorites. It shows up great from the street and is a fun addition to the porch. Now I can check planters, doormat and door wreath off my list of things to do. Still to come is the sitting area with pillows and accessories.

Here is a preview of the sitting area. It was so stark and bare from the winter, but it perked right up with the addition of some color and plants. Stay tuned.

I’m making progress on my makeover, but it’s slow. The window treatments were holding me up, but I think I’ve finally made a decision. Now to make it happen!
I hope you have a lovely week…and if you need to “make something happen,” I hope it all goes smoothly.
