While I was out curbside shopping, I picked up a few garden hoses. I’ve been dying to make one of those cute wreaths using a hose, but I didn’t want to purchase a hose just for the project. Why purchase a hose when you can pick up a discarded hose for free.
Hoses seem to be everywhere. There’s a discarded hose on every street during spring cleanup. Well almost every street.
This is one of the hoses I picked up.
First, I determined the size of wreath I wanted by winding the hose. I wrapped the hose in flower wire to secure the size of wreath.
Around and around I wrapped the wire.
After four loops I cut the hose.
The flowers were added by inserting the bunches of flowers one by one in between the wire and the hose. After a few flowers the wire becomes quite snug.
To finish, I added the watering can and a separate piece of wire to hang the wreath by.
How simple, but so cute!
I only used part of the hose for my wreath which left me enough to make a wreath for my Mother’s Birthday.
My front door is ready for spring.

Is your door ready for spring? I hope you’re enjoying the warmer weather here in the US. It’s sure a welcoming change to the last few months of bitter cold weather.
We worked outside this past weekend. The yard is cleaned, new mulch added to flower beds and the yard is mowed. Spring is here!
Gardening and a few pallet projects are yet to come, so stay tuned.
This project was shared with a few amazing linky parties.
