Its the official symbol of summer.
I don’t care if you think its tacky or not.
All hail the pink flamingo.
I can’t get enough of this pink feathered friend of mine, therefore I am proclaiming it to be the official symbol of summer.
I fully realize I may be the only one involved in this proclamation.
I’ll own it.
It started with the DIY Flamingo Sprinkler.
My fun friend has recently shown up once more.
In the colorful screened-in porch.
On a wreath.
This fun and colorful wreath fits in perfectly with the rest of the porch.
It practically insists that you have a drink complete with a mini-umbrella.
Or at least that’s what it told me.
Here’s what you need to make your own pink flamingo wreath:
- Wreath (I used a 14 inch straw wreath)
- Astroturf (You can go to your local home improvement store and buy the minimum that you can off the roll for about $5 or so and that should be plenty. I used scraps leftover from a project.)
- Pink Flamingo
- Drink Umbrellas
- Hot Glue Gun
Cut the astroturf into long strips about three inches wide and three feet long. Wrap the strips around the wreath form securing with a dollop of hot glue between the astroturf and wreath as you wrap it. Continue until the wreath is covered with astroturf.
Poke the mini drink umbrellas into the bottom of the wreath and a little up the sides.
Hot glue the pink flamingo to the wreath. I did this by putting a good sized glob (love my terminology?) on the back of the neck and rear end of the flamingo, then immediately pressing and holding the flamingo onto the wreath. So far, its held up perfectly fine.
Use another strip of astroturf to hang the wreath from or a ribbon.
Isn’t she just so fun?
