{diy} wreath!

I have to admit - I am pretty proud of this one. There have been a lot of really great wreaths floating around blog land lately, and being one to love the crafts I had to get in on the action. I had been wanting to use coffee filters (mainly because they look like giant cupcake liners and that makes me happy) so I thought they would be perfect for a wreath! I took some pictures along the way - but basically I went to the dollar store, bought the coffee filters, headed to the local Stitch n' Time (as close to a 'craft' store as we have here in Jackson - hint hint Michaels) and bought a straw wreath. I took some clothing pins, a coffee filter and started pinning away. After I finished with the first layer, I flipped the wreath over and sort of haphazardly put the rest (160 to be exact) of the filters around the wreath till it was full and fab! Voila, homemade wreath! And, it truely only took about an hour and a half of watching tv and pinnin'... if you need some more explanation, just shoot me an email! But, you like?

You should be proud of it, it looks amazing! How great that something so simple can be turned into a masterpiece. I love how textural it looks, but soft and romantic at the same time, nice job!
