I knew from the beginning that my last wreath wouldn't stay on my door for very long. That's the problem with holiday decorating. You gotta take it down in a timely manner.
So I retired my 4th of July wreath. I needed something new to put in its place. Introducing my latest yarn wreath creation:
The flowers are made from felt, burlap, tulle, old t-shirts, and some spray-painted buttons. I found the little "S" at Michael's in the clearance bin for 20 cents. To make the three flowers stand up, I wrapped yarn around some floral wire that I had sitting around. I really love how it turned out! It makes me smile.
Speaking of making me smile, I also added a little vinyl to the front door. I was going to do some sort of "Welcome" decoration, but then it occurred to me that we're really more of a casual family, so I went with something a little less formal:
I love it! (But now I'm looking at the picture and realizing how badly I need to repaint the trim on the door. Oh well, that's another project for another day.)
Until next time,
