Fun Spring Wreath
Isn't this cute? It is so easy to do!! I originally found it on Pinterest and you can click here to see it at The Creative Place Blog. I can't believe she posted it 2 years ago and I only found it now!!! This is made with a ball of Fun Fur and she used green which looks great. I knew that I had a bag with some Fun Fur that I had done nothing with (left from those years of making scarves!!!) and the best color I had to do this was yellow.
These are the materials that you need -
I found the wreath form (8") at Pat Catan's craft store and the trim and pins were from WalMart.
Before you start to wrap the Fun Fur - tie it on with a little knot - it will be covered so however you can make it work is fine. Now, just start wrapping that yarn around.
It takes a while to do this so I found it best to watch an interesting TV show (an hour long one!!) and that will make the time go by better!!
This is how much I had left when I was finished - not much at all --
I trimmed the daisies off the roll and used the coordinating pins to hold them in place --
All finished --
Since I knew where I was hanging this and there wasn't room to have a long ribbon as in the original post - I opted to just clip in a medium size safety pin to hang it on the suction cup I was using --
Here you go --
Even though I had this with my Easter decorations - I plan to leave it in place for the next month or two.
I think there are many possibilities with this using appropriate holiday colors and trims for the other holidays. I'll have to take a look at my remaining stash of Fun Fur to see if I can do other holidays. If not, I will have to keep an eye out for Fun Fur on sale!!! I'll have to check out the fabric departments better to see what I can use instead of the daisies. I'm thinking something in red, white & blue would be great for the 4th of July!!
Lucy's favorite toys are her little mice. She especially likes a little white one (I think it is under a couch right at this moment!!). Anyway, it was so cute to watch her play with it. I had this box on the floor when I was going thru all my Easter decorations to put out. On her own - she was playing this game of putting the mouse in the box and then trying to get it out. She may have had a hard time (not really that hard though!!) getting her head out sometimes --

I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
