New *Summer* Wreath

I love hanging wreaths and other such things on our front door.  Sadly, it’s been bare since Valentine’s Day.  I attempted to make something like this, but only got 1/3-1/2 way done.  It’s sitting in the basement right now in a pile of other things to be finished.

Am sure you’ve seen those felt rosettes floating around blog land, I instantly fell in love with the simplicity of them.  I knew I wanted to do something with them, so I rummaged around in the basement, found a straw wreath form, some leftover burlap from several previous projects, and picked white, yellow, and a very pretty bright blue felt.  30 minutes later this is what I ended up with.

Total Cost: $0

I know it’s the little things, but this seriously just brightened my day now that something is hanging on our door again, plus I made it which just makes me feel good to be doing something crafty again.

Love the new wreath! I've been wanting to make one like that, just have to sit my butt down to do it.

On a side note, I wanted to let you know that someone is using your old blogspot domain and their posts (all about Dell computers) are coming through on the rss feed. Oddly enough when you click on the title to get the the actual blog post there's no post there. Here's the latest one: http://kathleenrichards.blogspot.com/2011/06/dell-computer-grants.html

Just thought you might want to know.

I love the simplicity of this wreath! It's not overdone, but so beautiful! I would love it if you linked up with my linky party, Creative Me Monday, at http://www.thesoutherninstitute.com/2011/06/my-new-hobby.html It's pretty new and I'm trying to grow it. Tell your readers about it if you want to! Hope to see you there...thanks!
