So today I was thinkin' to myself,
"Self, why don't you have a wreath up for Fall?".
And I came to the conclusion
that there was absolutely no good reason
for it whatsoever.
So, I decided to make a wreath from
what I had available.
Hot glue: check.
styrofoam wreath: no check.
I was just about to round up the troops
and take them to the Dollar Tree to get a wreath,
when I decided to give myself a little challenge.
I decided to look through my craft supplies
to see if I had anything else that I could
use to shape my wreath.
Turns out I had a bunch of
wire that I had completely forgotten about.
and you KNOW this girl has
plenty of burlap hanging around!
So, I decided to give it a shot.
Got nothin' to lose, right?
Worst case scenario I would end up with
a piece of junk and find myself at the
store buying a $1.00 wreath.
I think I can handle that.
So, I took my wire and shaped it
in a circle the size I wanted my wreath to be.
Then I just started polking holes in the
burlap with the wire and stared loading it on.
I didn't know what I was going for at first,
but then I realized that the more
it looked, the better.
placing the wire in from
side to side.
"hmmmmm...this might just work!"
I kept zig-zaging until I felt like it
was dense enough.
Then I used my needle nose pliers to
secure the wire.
...and then bunched the burlap
over the wire.
But my wreath needed something else.
So I made some rosettes to go on it.
Not bad for $0, right?
I must leave you with another favorite
My adorable 4 year old had a
at his school.
They made their own costumes and
paraded around the church.
He did his job, stood still
for pictures, and then
immediately after his obligation was fulfilled,
he took his "stupid" costume off.
He's so dramatic.
I can't imagine where
he could have gotten that from!
Happy Friday, Friends!
Hope you have a
