|Do you remember the Birdie Love post I added a few weeks back? Well my sweet friend D.d. found me at church and said she wanted to make something like my birds but with lady bugs instead. LOVE IT!! Don't be afraid to alter and think outside of the box. She loved the birds but her niece's room has a lady bug theme. She came over one day and we went to work. The lady bugs are brown with pink accents(colors in her niece's room). We accented with the other colors to add more pop to it since we left the canvas white. Buy pattern paper when it is on sale. You never know what you will be able to use it for. I am so in love with this!!|

Examples of wreaths the inspire me to try and make one.
|I love both of these styles. They make me smile.|
|How cute is this!!!! Made out of marshmallows. hahahaha|
|maybe for Christmas...|
|Painted a styrofoam form from Hobby Lobby. The paint is called Pistachio, but it's more lime green.|
So far so good.
|I found some cute cupcake holders at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 off.|
All I did here was fold the cupcake wrappers into flower shapes and hot glued them on. This got a little frustrating for me because my crafting OCD kicked in at this point and a few didn't look as good as I hoped. I plugged along in hopes that the more I got on there the less the bad ones would show. I did a small grouping on each side of the wreath. Top, bottom, left and right then filled in the gaps. Trying to keep it balanced.
|A better view of the cupcake wrappers and how they looked glued on and bunches together.|
I was very hopeful at this point.
I used 150 wrappers for this project.
|I hot glued a pink ribbon down a white one I had to coordinate with the wreath's colors.|
And, now I can say the wreath and I are on the road to becoming friends. Possibly BFFs one day. Well, lets not get carried away Kelly. Baby steps right? My front door finally displays a wreath for the first time. I am quite smittin with it. Maybe one day I will attempt something harder but for now I will sit back and enjoy the fact that I can now finally say, "Hello, my name is Kelly and I can make wreaths."
What kind of projects do you struggle with? Share with me so we can be joined in our struggles together. Happy Crafting!!!!
Don't forget to enter my Birthday give away.
