Crafting gone wrong

Several months ago i found this wreath on Pinterest.
It was love at first sight.
P3091850 copy
I thought is was THE most creative wreath I had ever seen and couldn't wait to try it for my self.
I bought all my supplies and spent 2 hours carefully wrapping the fun fur 'grass' around the Styrophoam making sure that when I wrapped it I didn't lay it down on the previously wrapped 'grass'. Yeah, 2 hours later I was pleased as punch. I glued on my little flowers and I had some large rick rack that I tied into a bow. I took it out to my front door to photograph and it slipped out of my hand and slammed down to the bricks and busted up into 4 pieces. I could not believe it!! I was soooo pissed! Seriously, how does Styrophoam crack apart like that?? I picked up the 4 pieces with the yarn going everywhere and threw it onto the table. My husband came home and said, what happened here and I said, you tell me. I told him I was done that I did not have it in me to wrap it all again for 2 hours on a new wreath. He secretly glued the pieces back together for me and said all I had to do was to figure out the wrapping. Some is still in tack, some is in long loops, so I am going to have to cut some of it and rewrap, but not nearly what I would have. 
So stay tuned for my craft wreath gone bad, but saved in the end...

I will be uploading my pics from the Annie Sloan workshop I attended in Chicago, let me just say-


  1. That is an adorable wreath! Next time take a picture of the craft disaster! We want to see it!

  2. Bonnie it sounds like you have a sweetie for a husband! Lucky girl. You'll do okay on the wreath just take your time. I think it is so cute and can't wait to see how it turns out. You stopped by my blog and asked which Osnaburg fabric I used. It is the unbleached and I washed the material first to remove the sizing. I'm glad you like them and hope you'll stop back by.

  3. okay, my friend, i've popped over a few times lately and you're nowhere to be found. what's up? is it already wedding season for hair design????

  4. Hi, Bonnie

    Sorry to hear about your wreath. I saw this wreath and I loved it too. You husband is so kind, what a blessing he was to try to help you. I can't wait to see your finish wreath.



  5. What an amazing husband you have to fix the wreath for you and give you that "pick me up" when you needed it. It sure is cute!
