So even though Irene didn't hit here in South Florida, we did get quite a bit of rain last week, which gave me an excuse to be crafty. The projects I made weren't actually my idea. I saw them on one of my fav blogs Mrs. Priss. (Follow the link for the tutorial, and seriously, go check her out, she is hilarious!)
Nonetheless, I am so happy with how they turned out and I wanted to share with you. They are really simple to make and turn out so nicely. They're yarn wreaths! (I wish I could take the credit. They are adorbs!)
So cute right? I wasn't going to post about them at all because I am going to make some as Christmas gifts, but I figure that seeing these now will get my friends excited for what they might get. (Or they could tell me they look like garbage on the walls and I know to make something else. It's a win win!)
I have wanted to make something to go over my bed in my parent's house for a while because all I have up there is a tea light holder I bought like 300 years ago.
Yawn. It was pretty, but not really the look I was going for. And while you're wondering, yes, I have red walls and yes, I have always wanted them and had to fight my parents for them in our new house. I figure if I am going to be staying here until after the holidays (pleeeeease baby Jesus let me move out after the holidays), I might as well have the room decorated nicely. So I decided to make a yarn wreath for it.
Much more me. Then of course my Mom saw it and she wanted one too. I was only too happy to oblige.
Voila! Woodland themed for fall! (And it's not really displayed on the mirror, I just couldn't put a hole in the wall to take a picture.)
The little bee is my fav. Kills me!
So I hope you think they're
