DIY Easy Fern & Daisy Summer Wreath
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.
