Several months ago i found this wreath on Pinterest.
It was love at first sight.
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-
