Craft Time!

I'm not sure what came over me a few weeks ago, but I decided I wanted to be crafty. Mrs. G shared a post on Google Reader about Do It Yourself Valentine's Wreath. And I promptly fell in love with this yarn wreath. I decided I wanted to make one for Valentine's Day. With my mom's help, I got all the supplies at Michael's.

I wound up only using the craft glue on the flowers and then bought a hot glue gun to actually attach the flowers to the wreath.

It took me a while to get the hang of wrapping the yarn around the wreath, but it wasn't too difficult. Except for the fact that I kept hitting myself into the face with the yarn. Here it is about half way through.

I used coffee cans and a salad plate as my template for the circles.

Here's one of the pink circles.

I cut out all of the circles and then made the weird crinkly edges to them.

I totally only made one of the flowers. My mom made the rest of them because I am a wuss.


Here is it hanging on our door this morning.

Overall this was a SUPER easy craft and pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself.
