Well enough about that. This post is way over due and I want to get it shared. I had some grandiose plans for some new decorations that I was going to make for Spring/Easter for the house and while I didn't get to all of them the ones that I didn't finish I am super happy with and all supplies for the others have been put away for next year.
So here is my first project that I made, it is a new wreath. While I had dozens of ideas floating around in my head and I'll admit that the finally creation was not the original final decision I am really glad that I changed my mind.
So my original thought for this wreath was that I was going to cover it completely in eggs. The I saw a wreath that had been wrapped in yarn for a different occasion and thought that it looked really cool. Hence the change from covering it in eggs to wrapping it in yarn. It took awhile to wrap the wreath. I used a 12" straw wreath from Hobby Lobby, which are inexpensive to begin with, but a add a 40% coupon and I flashes to that Ikea commercial with the woman running towards her husband waiting in the car yelling "start the car"!
One note on the wreath if you do decide to go with a straw wreath, I highly recommend leaving the plastic wrap on the wreath and winding your yarn over top that. It makes for less mess and itchy arms.
Well there you have my Easter projects for this year!
