My newest craft hobby is evidently making wreaths. My first wreath project was a birthday present for my best friend Lane. I saw a Gerbera daisy wreath in a catalog, and thought, “that is so perfect for Lane!” I thought I could make it for less than it cost in the catalog, which turned out to probably not be true, but I had so much fun making it, and I felt it meant more that I had put in the time.
I forgot to take an after picture, but here is the inspiration picture from the catalog’s website. I used different color flowers and also had a bow on mine, so you can just imagine it right?
Then, I saw another wreath in the same catalog for autumn, and again thought, “I can make that!” I already had the gourds/pumpkins and some berries. So off to Garden Ridge I went, and returned with some fall flowers, a grapevine wreath, and some ribbon. Who knew these wreaths that they sell for $50 and $60 in the store were so easy to make? A little hot glue, a little wire, and voila! (I will say that trying to teach myself to make a bow was a trying experience, but I am pleased with the outcome of my very first bow-making attempt)
Next up: A Christmas wreath with a UGA theme. Fun times!
I have never done much decorating for holidays other than Christmas, but I think I have found a new way to decorate without having to store too much stuff for each season.
