As we slide into fall, my daughter decided that we needed to do something fun for such a colorful season.
I wanted to purchase illegal fireworks to celebrate but with a fire ban in place, she was afraid of setting the neighbors field aflame. She really is a
party pooper responsible girl! Bless her!!
We decided to do the right thing and craft! What better way than with some door jewelry!
Her wreath turned out gorgeous and very fall like with all the warm tones of this bug free
(we had frost) season.
As my storage room is filling up to the point of tripping over boxes to get to more boxes of
"I'm sure I will use that stuff someday" "stuff",
not illegal fireworks,
I decided to make a dual purpose wreath. Maybe even in time, it will become an all season wreath!
I started out with a piece of orange felt and some Velcro.
|Velcro hook pieces sewn to the side.|
|Velcro loop pieces lined up to join the hook pieces.|
|Felt is wrapped around the wreath waiting for some floral frosting. The decorations are glued to the felt while attached to the wreath so there are no visible bare spots of felt peeking through!|
|The R & K are glued directly to the wreath.|
|Now for the Christmas version, using red felt of course!|
|Free from the wreath form, the Christmas version can be stored in a Ziploc bag and be kept clean from renovation dust!|
So what are you waiting for blog world, frost your doors and windows, but with one wreath. Save that shelf in your storage room for your illegal fireworks and a parachute for skydiving! And on a side note, make sure you have that life insurance policy paid in full!!
Coming soon....a Valentines day wreath and a spring wreath, maybe in February....although I am the Feral Turtle so that could be in February 2016
