As I stated yesterday I have been pretty busy crafting and making holiday items (decorations) and gifts for my family. Today I am going to share (excitedly) something I never thought in my wildest dreams, I would be making. As you can see if you have been watching my blog, I have been quite obsessed with anything burlap. While going into Joann Fabrics for items for a project of her own (will be shared at a later date), my mother saw a burlap WREATH on the front of a magazine and had to share with me. I liked the idea of having an actual wreath for the holidays instead of a wooden candy cane/star combo I have been using, but really no desire to take the time to make one. Being the good mother she is, she searched the internet and found a great tutorial at Top this Top that. And
then of course she emails it to me at which point I checked them out and still thought COOL, but don't think I have the time or feel like it.
Last weekend, I was in my hometown for breakfast with my high school girlfriends and then dropped of a few wine bottle lights (also to be shared soon) a friend's mother had "ordered" from me. I stopped by to visit my parents for a little and ended up going to Michael's for elastic. Well, we all know how that goes. It's like TARGET- you go in for toilet paper and come out having spent $50 or more on who knows what. Well basically, my mom decided she would by items for her wreath which she was going to make for a housewarming gift. The crafter in me screamed out that I needed to make one too (thanks mom!!!) and so I quickly snagged up my materials as well. (in addition to some ribbon for another project and a bow for this one).
Well enough jibber jabber, let me show you the goods!
Needless to say, I showed a picture of my wreath to a coworker while it was still plain with JUST the bows on it and she immediately wanted me to make one for her to buy from me. So I kept hers plain jane and her it is.
Now, go make yours, you know you want to!! :)
