Sunshine Crochet Wreath

There is no better way to set the tone for a welcoming house than to have a wreath on your front door, especially during the happy days of summer. This Sunshine Crochet wreath is a fun DIY wreath idea that will step up your home decoration game. This pattern uses a styrofoam base to get that perfect circular shape, and then covers it with the simple sleeve and sun ray patterns. You can also use the pennant flags to spell out a cheery message like the "sun" shown here by using the template. The warm yellow color of the yarn mirrors the warmth of the design, and it is the perfect way to signal that you are ready to banish the cold days for this season.

Adorable and it looks like so much fun to make. As I have said before, wreaths are a great decorating option for older folks who cannot lift heavy or large items but still want to be festive. Also good for apartment dwellers.I would enjoy making this wreath, that is for sure!

Wow! This is really fun and different. Even without the sun sign in the center, this screams Summer! If you are in need of a new wreath to display during Summer, this is the one. All of your neighbors will make a comment on it for sure when they stop by so be ready to take the credit for your beautiful work.

This project will take a bit of time, but it is well worth the effort! And after the winter weve had, Im more than ready for Summer. I already have the yarn (Caron One Pound in Gold) but Ill need to pick up a foam wreath form. Instead of the wooden flag blocks, Im going to work up the pennants using some tapestry instead!

What a wonderful Summer wreath. This really screams here comes the hot days of summer. Reading over the directions it does show it is an easy pattern and the hard part may be crocheting the pointy rays. I would say you could have this done in a week-end. This will brighten up the front door for sure.

Let the sun shine in. This is a gorgeous wreath. The base for this could be used to create a different look for each month or one for each holiday. Minimal supplies are required so this is a pretty easy project to give your home a little facelift without emptying your wallet. Great idea and an easy to follow pattern.

One of our local county fairs has an entire entry section just for wreaths. This might be a good one to think about entering next year!

In reading the pattern for this absolutely adorable sun wreath, I am unsure if the sc decrease should be two sc crocheted together or if I should skip one sc to do the decrease? Love this wreath!!
