ALL OF A SUDDEN I WANTED TO MAKE A WREATH!
I saw this on Pinterest and had it in the back of my mind... enter long weekend sans spouse.
So I went to Michael's and purchased 5 balls of yarn, all of which were consumed:
It was a little time consuming but yielded a bright and textural wreath. In the evening I made the pom poms then had to go back to Michael's today for a hot glue gun. While I was there I spotted all these glittery feathery spooky-glam odds and ends... and thought, I'LL MAKE ANOTHER WREATH!
|I especially liked these glittery crows, I named them Sheryl and Russell.|
Pinterest, YouTube and even Google seemed bare of feather wreath tutorials. Having never done it before, and spent a rather astonishing $60 on supplies (the wreath was $15, the doodads about $1-$4 apiece), I wanted a little direction. Finding it lacking, I just hot glued everything on there. Voila, wreath #2.
It looks better in person- in the photos the black roses and leaves blend with the feathers. Next time: more contrast. All in all an empowering trip to the craft store.
Oh and this chair? He and his partner are destined for a fab makeover as part of Operation Loving the Living Room. These chairs are big and comfy and wonderful and I cannot wait to reimagine them. BRIGHT!
