Pinterest inspired Wreath


My new obsession with Pinterest has actually caused me to be even MORE productive if you can believe it! I made this sweet yarn wrapped wreath, felt flowers included, by checking out this fab tutorial HERE. Only one blister was had and I LOVE the results, the best part is whenever I see this wreath, I can proudly say, "I made that!" which I've been doing over and over again in my head, hehe...

I'm entering my DIY fall colored wreath in the following challenges this week and hopefully I'll inspire others to pull out their own yarn and felt as well!


The Shabby Tea Room
is asking their readers to create a "Homespun Fall" themed project using the above photo as inspiration. I think I took the homeSPUN quite literally since I spun my yarn, around and around and around my wreath!


The Paper Players
are hosting an "Anything Goes" challenge this week and our projects are to contain a fall element.

I've also linked my little wreath over at the Fall Pinterest Challenge at Young House Love and you can check out Sherry's cool Pinterest inspired ornaments, 38, to be exact. Also Katie, Ana & Erin have some awesome projects to check out as well as the rest of the Young House Love followers who have linked all of their lovely creations!


Happy Fall Y'ALL!
