When you think of wreaths, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the winter holidays. While wreaths made of hearty garlands are always a gorgeous way to add some greenery to your home, summer wreaths deserve to be part of your warm-weather decor during the other half of the year, when DIY spring wreaths feel a little too seasonal. These summer wreaths are light, bright, and a great way to add classic elegance to any door (or wherever you decide to hang it).
