Spring Wreath

Hello everyone!  I have not been here for a week and I have missed it so much!  Our computer went kaboom and so today we bought a new one!  Yipee!  So happy to be back and hope everyone has been great! 

I do not have a big post today but I wanted to make sure I got on to see what everyone was up to.  I did manage to make a spring wreath for our front door.  I did not take any pictures while I was putting it together but here is an after picture.


For my first wreath, I think it turned out nicely.

I bought all my items from Hobby Lobby:

Straw wreath
yarn
stick pins
ribbon
flowers

I took the plastic covering off the wreath to wrap the yarn around it.  I am not sure if this was a good idea or not because it made a huge mess, but that's what I did. 
While wrapping the yarn around it, I would place a small stick pin in every so often.  I used pins with yellow heads.  It took awhile to wrap this little thing, but after about 3 to 4 hours I had it done.  I went back and did a second wrapping but didn't take as much care to the placement of the yarn.  I was tired!
I cut the two flowers and just stuck them in the wreath.  Then I took the ribbon, cut how much I wanted and tied it to my wreath hanger.  If I want to change out the ribbon, I just untie it from the hanger.  Pretty easy.

Well, that is all for today!  Again, I am really happy to be back!  Woo-hoo!
