just another girl, following another trend...

i've posted about a few wreaths i've made.
my favorite being my christmas wreath!

i made one for my mom as well that was gold and red but i guess i never took any pics.
i will have to snap one when she takes it out this year!
speaking of christmas, i'm SOOOOO excited to have our first family christmas with Cullen!!

my second favorite wreath is a ribbon wreath i made over the past few days...
for halloween!!
the process....
cutting lots of ribbon into 6 inch strips.
i did NOT have enough ribbon!
i needed double this amount...
one section done, took forever...
feeling like i'm getting somewhere....
and again, completed wreath...
can you tell i'm proud?
the wreath did seem to take forever ;) haha!
i love it though!!
when i went to buy more ribbon the craft store was out of most of the original ribbons i had bought so i had to buy some other patterns and colors, i think it worked out ok though. 

i got the original idea from pinterest.
CLICK for original link to blog for my inspiration wreath!
the inspiration wreath was made with fabric vs ribbon.
i heard through twitter that others were making ribbon wreaths, i saw one of those on pinterest as well! now EVERYONE is doing it!!  gotta LOVE pinterest! :)

some other wreaths i've made in the past...
easter egg wreath

cupcake wrapper valentines wreath

i've got 5 wreaths in my basket for now.
i love making them and they will last a long time.
i'm still working on my yarn ball wreath for fall.
just when i thought i had everything for it i realized i don't have enough hot glue sticks for the glue gun!
i will finish it soon, i hope ;)
i'll be keeping the yarn ball wreath inside.
the halloween wreath is on our front door!

lastly i have to/NEED to sneak a lil somethin somethin EXTRA cute into this post...
it was chilly here last week, in the 60's, C had to wear his little knit cap and puma's!!
LOVE his face & everything about him!! :) 

p.s. ALL photos are phone photos, my camera cord will not charge my camera or upload pics, heartbreaking :( stupid camera is 6 months old and cost way too much...heading to best buy soon. just another thing to add to the "to do" list....seriously, never ending!  & i doubt best buy will do anything for me.

After seeing AP's ribbon wreath tutorial on ILYMTC I decided to give it a stab. Your Halloween wreat is EXACTLY what I had in mind! Feel free to save me the time and trouble and send yours my way! ;)

Love the wreathes, you did such a good job! I wish I had the patience to make one but instead I just prefer to buy one or pay someone to make me one. :)

I wish I had your drive! I would love to have an arsenal of wreaths, but I just don't. Please tell me you've made them over the last few years rather than recently; I'll feel like less of a slacker :) They all turned out so cute. And of course, C is the cutest of all.

Amy T. said...
