Besides doing bucket loads of laundry, and straightening our house so it’s not a complete catastrophe when we come home from Florida, I did some crafting!!!
I don’t know if I’d exactly describe myself as “crafty.” I can create a pretty bangin’ scrapbook. But as far as sewing…I have a machine, but I can’t thread it to save my life. I inspire to be crafty, however, which is why I attempted my very first yarn wreath!
I hit up Michael’s and picked up some supplies. When I came home, I couldn’t wait to get started!
Okay, so this is going to sound a bit crazy, but it took me FOUR FREAKING HOURS to wrap this entire wreath. This was
partly all my fault. I didn’t realize you needed to pull a piece of yarn from the inside to avoid knotting. Yeah. I was working with a knotted mess, untangling every two.flippin’.seconds. BUT, it got done.
I put it away for the night and decided to work on the flowers the next day. I went to Pinterest to find tutorials on how to make felt flowers, and I went to town!
Overall, I don’t think it came out too bad for my first attempt! The colors just scream “Spring” to me!
So, that was our weekend. Playground, packing, cleaning, and crafting!!! And tomorrow…we’re headed to Florida!!!
