Midnight Blue Winter Wreath
Monday, December 12, 2011
Another project on my Christmas To-Do List is complete. I’m knocking these out quicker than I thought I would. I’m pretty proud of myself, but I need to stay focused. I still have to make my stockings and tiny little Christmas trees within 13 days.
I’ve been debating what kind of wreath I wanted to make for the Christmas season since the summertime ended. I’ve gone back and forth between some that I’ve seen on Pinterest and magazines, but when it came down to it, I decided to stick with what I’ve already got. I just had to run out to JoAnn’s Fabric store on my lunch break and grab a wreath form and some yarn. When I came home, I laid out my supplies: wreath form, yarn and hot glue.
I picked out a dark blue for this wreath called Dark Country Blue and just started wrapping it around my wreath after hot gluing one of the ends to the wreath form. It took me about 15 minutes, while I sat on the couch and listened to Travis and my cousins yelling and screaming at the TV while playing Call of Duty. Good Stuff.
Once my wreath was covered in the yarn, I got out some of the snowflakes that I used as table decorations for my friend’s bridal shower. I just kind of re-arranged them on the wreath until I found a placement that I liked and just hot glued them on.
It’s now hanging on our door. :)
I’m glad I did a winter wreath instead of a Christmas one, that way this one can stay up until I finish a wreath for Valentine’s Day in February.
