Challenging myself to reuse all of the wreaths I have made in the last 12 months. First challenge is:
Keeping it simple by using the White Deco Mesh Wreath From Easter.
When I started thinking about wreaths, I realized that I had too many!!
So, what better place to start than with the most recent wreath that I have made.
After removing all of the Easter Embellishments, and storing them in baggies. I ventured over to Hobby Lobby. I found this delightful Blue Burlap Ribbon. I like the contrast of the light and airy deco-mesh with the heavier Burlap.
I wasn't really sure at first, but now I think mixing the two textures adds a bit of interest.
I had these bright and happy daisies in my craft box-just waiting for a good use.
Aren't these little darlings so realistic?
I added five of them - experimented with placement before securing with florist wire.
I love working on my projects in this room-it is one of my very favorite rooms- my kitchen nook-I love this light!!
I made my bow and added it and then brought the wreath into our bedroom to see what I thought.
I always move my creations from room to room to see what I think...
We have always had trouble hanging wreaths on our front door-
I have tried everything from "official," wreath hangers to clear suction cups.
We came up with the idea of hammering a small nail just above the lead glass and then tying fishing line to the wreath - then the nail. It is secure, light and invisible!
Do you have any projects that you are thinking of re-cycling?
Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.
