crafty?!?

I don't have many spring decorations so I decided to make myself a wreath. I was a little (or a LOT) limited to what I could buy. Seeing as there was no trip up north in the near future, I went down to south fork :)
Now, I would like to think of myself as crafty... after this I am not so sure.

First of all, to buy all the supplies to make it was MUCH more expensive than if I would have just BOUGHT a dang wreath at Country Floral.

Second of all, it took me FOREVER to make it. Just to give you an idea. Good ol' South Fork didn't have any wreath forms, so this began as one of those skinny wooden embroidery circles...



The end product was ok... not what I was picturing. Good enough to hang on the door for a month though.

I think next time unless I am feeling crazy, and like I have endless amounts of time and money... I will be heading on down to the country floral for any decorating needs :)

It really is super cute! Lis and I both commented on it when we came to your house last week!

I love the bright colors! I think the satisfaction that you created it can win over the money it took, right? It's pretty dang cute - probably much better than what I could have done just starting out with one of those embroidery rings! Good for you!

I think it's way cute! Definitely more fulfilling that you made it yourself right? I saw instructions on how to make one similar to that in BHG magazine once and I thought - to hard:) Kudos to you.
