After a brief hiatus, I've made a return to Pinterest.
You know the place, right? Where all the
cool super-crafty, arsty-fartsy, chic types all hang out.
Where everything you see looks so awesome and totally do-able.
However, I use my discretion and a dose of reality to pin what I may actually do. You know, someday.
I ended up getting an itch for a quick craft project. Fall wreath for my front door? Can do. Will try.
I pinned this one and followed the directions and used her template for rosettes. After a quick stop at JoAnn Fabrics, I was well on my way.
* 1 grapevine wreath
* 4 fall berry picks
* 6 total felt squares (dk.brown, lt. brown, maroon and orange color)
* 1 1/4 yds. brown ribbon for hanging
* 1 pkg.of command strip hooks (for hanging 3 lb items)
With the super sale they were running last week and my coupons, I spent just over $10 total. Throw on some hot glue and double-sided tape that I already had on hand and I was set.
The rosettes turned out to be kind of fun once I got the hang of them. The project maybe took a little over an hour if I don't count interruptions.
Hey, not bad! I'm pleased with the results.
I'm no Martha, but I don't mind trying.
