So I did this a while ago but I was not able to complete a lot last night and felt this would give some inspiration. (I hope)
So last year when I got back from Thanksgiving on my desk I had an empty wreath. No explanation. I put it to the side since no one was there and I didn't have a clue why it was there. When my boss came in I asked. What is the wreath for? His response... We were asked to make a wreath to be auctioned off for a charity in town and I said you would do it. HA! Nice... Thankfully work paid for all the supplies. It was fun to make something and not have to pay for it. So my mind started to wonder on what I would make...
Well I work for a local Home Builder. So I wanted to make something that went with our business. So I was thinking little tools. Our colors are red and white so that makes good "Christmas" wreath colors. So these are the supplies I got from Hobby Lobby: (Hobby Lobby is my go to store... in case you didn't notice that already)
I wasn't sure exactly what I was going to use of this. I got 2 sets of the tool ornaments, floral wire, red spray glitter, feathers, red ribbon, shutters from the doll house section, windows from the doll house section, and a door from the doll house section. Oh and tape measures from the sewing section.
I started with the bow first. I had an idea in my head. I wasn't sure if it was going to work but it did. Can you guess? Hint: The tape measures...
Ok then since it was for work I wanted to try to stick our name in there somewhere... I made sure it was easily removed for whoever won it though! No worries!!
Next I moved on to the wreath. I played and rearranged and played some more. My final looked like this:
Now go out and make your own wreath! Maybe a valentines one? I will be making one this weekend. It is on my to do list! I have a lot on my to do list! I hope I get it all done! I will share it all with you of course!
Just a little preview of some of the organization I have been trying to work on... What do you do with all of your tableclothes? Mine were just under my server in my dining room. They were taking up a ton of space and made it look horrible... Solution?
