Another Wreath...

*Family blog updated also. :)

Okay, it's official, I basically blog about Jake and Wreaths.... Hmmm.... Well, my sister was giving me an earful about how I don't share my projects with her, so here we go! I got the idea from my darling friend Nancy, and thought I would make one for my door. The results? Well, you be the judge.

So, first of all, I bought WAY too much felt- make sure you don't buy too much. I think one yard would have been plenty. I cut out a million circles but still had so much left over.

Fold them like so....

Okay, so ignore the felt bow holding it on the door- I was in a rush to share and did not have the cream ribbon I envisioned on hand. Other than that.......Hmmm. I am not sure. Everytime I drive away from our house I can't decide if it's festive or just an eyesore. What do you think? I added some sparkly hearts today but I am still not sure about it.

~ i actually love it ;) It's hard to come up with cute Valentine decorations. I'd love to see what the sparkly hearts look like... and agree it could be used in Spring too.
* a thought crossed my mind which you might think is lame, but you could add little eggs or bunnies for Easter?

eye sore? No way. Maybe use a cream ribbon instead of the felt at the top and it would make it look a little more sophisticated, but I love it! What did you think about the process? Fun right? But time consuming, but that is part of the fun. I think I'll do like you and buy some pins next time because the glue took way too long and way too much glue. Glad you did it and I love it! And I'm glad you posted about it :)
