Hey there everyone!
Spring, Spring Spring is in the air.
Although, we have a teaser for a day or two and then back to cold again.
Those days it was nice I was out there doing some lawn work, weeding and all that fun clean up stuff.
Today, I am sharing how to make your own garden hose wreath.
There really is not much to it, and I am sure you have seen them a bazillion and one times.
I did spray paint my hose, because I didn’t want the green hose I wanted a fun color.
I made this wreath for under $20.00.
I wanted it to match my new front door mat I found at Lowe’s hardware. Pretty colors and very cheery welcome.
Cheapest garden hose you can find
Can of spray paint
Garden rake and shovel, sold together at Walmart
First I spray painted the garden hose outside on a tarp
let dry over night.
Tied the hose together in a few places with twine
then I took my garden gloves
shovel and rake and tied them as well with the twine.
The seed packets I hot glued together
and then hot glued them on the hose. They may or may not stay..
Certainly says Welcome Spring upon entry.
I can’t wait to plant some pretty flowers soon.
Thanks for stopping over today.
I found some other cute garden hoses on pinterest.
Like I said, they are by the bazillions.
In fact, I see a lot of Etsy shops selling them for a pretty penny.
Go make one yourself, you can do it!
It’s that time of year when I love to spray paint

Very interesting, I would have never thought of using a garden hose as a wreath.
I would never think to do this..love the color. so Spring. Neat idea.
Good Morning Debbie,
I have made one of these in the past and hung it on my gate to the backyard. I love how easy they are to make and I get a lot of sweet compliments on mine. I never thought to paint the hose that is clever idea. Yours is really cute.
I love the color of the garden hose. You’re so clever Debbie!
Love it Debbie – it’s just toooooo cute!

It may have been done before, but yours looks unique! I love it, Debbie, and looks so good on your door with the new mat.
Very cute and clever Debbie and I love it with your door and welcome mat!
I want to make one of these this year. I even have the piece of hose lying in wait.
What perfect colors you chose!
And I love that mat – it would look perfect against the all white background of snow in my area LOL

I haven’t seen garden hose wreaths before! I wish I had your creative brain for even just one day!
You are so clever, Debbie– Happy Spring!

How fun! I had no idea that a garden hose could be spray painted! Thanks for sharing this tutorial with us!
So happy I stumbled onto your site! I have the hose and all the things to make the wreath but like you, I really don’t want the green hose. Was wondering if you could paint it but couldn’t find any info on that…….thanks!

Can you tell me where I may find the head of a hose that almost looks like a rubber plunger. I want to glue beads to look like water coming out of the hose
I really don’t know. Have you tried Amazon, or your local Home Depot, Lowes?
Wonder if you mod podged the seed packets if they would hold up better?!?
This is the cutest! Love it. And your hair is the cutest too!

I just stumbled on this blue garden hose wreath you made.Don’t know what year you made it. I was wondering if you could elaborate in detail how you painted your hose. I painted one red and it was so sticky I could not use it. I have spent hours on internet to no avail asking for help or a tutorial showing how to paint the hose.
Hi Judy, I actually placed the hose in a brown box and used sprayed paint. It worked out great.
I meant on a tarp, open air. I have spray painted so much that I forget. Either way, spray paint.
