Welcome friends to your home during the late summer with a fun "wreath" that contains all the  season's essentials!

 This do-it-yourself door hanging is made with dollar store buys and can express your personality through the products you chose.

 Pick out a simple beach tote that serves as the "wreath." Keep it folded flat and hang it by the handles on your front door.

 You may want to stuff the tote with crumpled paper to fill it out.

 Add plastic flip-flop sandals peeking out of the tote, a folded colorful beach towel (either sticking up or folded over the front of the tote), sunglasses, a colorful scarf to tie to the handle, a faux sunflower, a pinwheel, a bottle of sunscreen ... anything that says summer to you.

  Arrange items as desired (tuck items in the pocket too, if the tote has one) and use hot glue to hold everything in place.
