nap time wreath .. withOUT a glue gun!
withOUT a glue gun?!?! me? yep. i decided it was best. here's why.
i've been wanting to make one of these wrapped with yarn wreaths for a while... there are so many different kinds out there i've seen. love them. i found this yarn that has the colors of my living room (it's called "woodsy sylvestre".... found at walmart). well, as i started it, i thought "this would be good for a st. patrick's day wreath"... but.. i love the yarn and wanted it in the living room. Enter NO glue gun :) i decided i would make a st. patrick's day wreath that will trans form into my living room idea. oh yeah! i felt like a genius! i used only straight pins and the clovers are picks i found at JoAnne's.
I started wrapping the yarn around the wreath form. I used a straight pin to hold it.. and then just started wrapping!
i needed a little embellishment ;)
i took a thick ribbon and a fancy stencil to make the "G" for our last name. i used clear Tacky glue to make the G.. & sprinkled it with extra fine glitter.

St. Patrick's day in the house!
i don't have any SP decorations...
but since we are Griffins...
i figured i should embrace the luck of the irish
i love how it turned out! the stripes make it look like it took a really long time :) nope, just one nap time.
Are you doing any St. Patrick's Day decorating??
