I started blogging last September. One of my first few craft projects was my fall wreath. I still love it, but now that I've changed the exterior colors of my house, I wanted a new one. Our house was beige and our door was dark brown, so the old wreath was perfect. Now, our walls are white and our door is yellow. I wanted something fresh and more modern.
I headed to Michael's to buy the wreath form. My mom has a huge stash of yarn and I went "shopping" in her drawers. I also found an adorable little bird. I never thought I would be much of a bird decorating person, but I kind of really like it. I, also figure my almost two year old niece will love the "titi" as she calls birds.
I wrapped a grey yarn for about 3/4 of the way and a white yarn for the other 1/3. My free yarn was extremely thin, meaning lots and lots of wrapping. I hot glued the yarn every so often, just to make sure it was secure.
I love the look of it. If only I could change those terrible floors. Ugh. I've been doing a ton of work outside. I will do a full exterior picture when it's a bit further along. I'm scheming some ideas on how to convince my hubby that we NEED new tile and a new wooden walkway. Let's see if it works. I hope you have a great weekend. We will be celebrating my dads, moms, and hubby's birthday on Sunday night. It should be fun.
