No Really, this is easy!
It took me more time to take photos
and make this banner on Pic Monkey
than it did to make the wreath.
I like to have a wreath on the front door
(two actually, I have double doors).
I don't like the ones that I see in the craft stores
and I don't like the prices of the ones
that I see in the higher end home stores
or online, especially when I have to buy two.
I wanted something simple
so I bought flowers all in shades
of lavender and white.
I usually have a few grapevine wreaths
lying around that I have purchased
when they are discounted
but I really wanted a messy willow wreath
so I had to pay for it.
OK, I had one 40% off coupon
and the flowers were all 50% off
so it wasn't THAT bad.
I took apart the bunches of flowers
so that I had individual stems.
I just poked them in the willow
to see where I wanted them
and then wired them in really well.
You could hot glue them if you like.
I always burn my fingers
and then it makes it hard to type.
I layered the lavender and the
lighter shade with the white
and while I was looking for ribbon
I came across this initial
that I had in my craft stash.
I think I had it to make something for my mother
but I swear I can't remember what it was!
Now it stands for
But you could just use any initial you like...
I wired the letter in
and then I will cover it with the flowers.
It's hard to tell how the finished product will look
so I like to hang it up inside
and fuss with it.
I added a few more flowers
and I was finished!
Now I have to make another one...
Hope you are all having a great week!
Until Next Time,
