March Wreath {or what happened to February?}


Sitting down to write this post, I realized I never posted about February's wreath. Unfortunately, its already in the trash.

I again tried to be cheap and use pipe tubing instead of a wreath form. I also decided to be lazy and didn't hot glue the down the seam. I tried using dollar store duct tape. Let's just say this didn't last. 

The poor sad February wreath didn't hold its shape more than a week. Importnat lesson...you can be cheap and you can be lazy. Perhaps, you shouldn't be both at the same time without first thinking through the possible outcomes!


Fresh off of February's fail, I bought a wreath form. I'm still boycotting yarn wrapping, so I used fabric {ie a  fifty cent sheet from Thrift Town...more on my AMAZING trip to Thrift Town later}. My intent was for the flowery area to look like clovers. I think I might have packed in the pieces a bit too tight. 

Oh well, I'm a fan. Plus, almost anything would look better than last month's wreath.


Oh, and the banner. The paper for this is awesome! The polka dots are raised! Plus, its lime green {which has strangely always been my favorite color since I was little}!

{The clouds have arrived in North Texas. Please forgive the terrible pictures. Its gloomy out!}

Come Party with me!


Thanks for featuring me!
