Summertime Front Door "Wreath"

These days, most of my posts have been kid related - either kids doing projects or kids doing school work.  Today, however, you get an honest-to-goodness adult project (although if you wanted to have some children help you with it you probably could).  I've been wanted a new summer-time wreath for my front door since last summer, and after wandering around Pinterest and looking at all kinds of ideas I finally decided on a simple monogram.  I found a wooden "K" at Walmart and started by painting it white with some paint I had left over from another project.
Then I cut apart a bunch of fake flowers (also from Walmart) and hot-glued them onto the letter.
For a hanger I hot-glued a piece of yarn across the back.  That didn't work so well, so I switched to Gorilla glue.  It's still hanging, which I guess means that it was the right material for the job.
Voila!  Other than paint drying time, the whole thing took about 15 minutes to put together.  Which is just about all the time I had between kid activities that day.
