It’s that time of the year when the weather starts to warm up and we want to get outside and start some yard clean up! This is also when I want to change out my front door décor. One of the best ways to brighten up the entrance of your home is with a beautiful wreath. Wreaths can often be pricey due the expense of supplies. It is important to keep the longevity of your wreath for as long as possible.
A great way to prevent fading of any fabric porch décor is with a UV fabric sunblock spray. I am currently using Force Field UV Sunblock for indoor and outdoor fabrics. It has an initial low odor and dries very quickly. Always check color fastness on a non-visible part of fabric first. Even though my porch is covered, I use this on all my wreaths and porch pillows. Allow to fully dry at least two hours before placing on display.
Another suggestion is to use Fray Check by Dritz on all ribbon edges to prevent fraying.
I am in love with my burlap carrot wreath from Etsy shop SouthernCustom46. The owner, Rebecca, creates fancy affordable wreaths! Rebecca takes custom orders; she is quick to respond to requests. I look forward to buying from her again.
