I don’t have a cross stitch to share. Not even a knitting project, but I do have a project to share that uses yarn.
Isn’t this cool? My friend Lori sent me a link for this a couple of month’s ago. I started this project last month and finally finished it today. It was a DIY project and you can find all the info at www.thecreativeplace.blogspot.com and search for Spring Wreath. I tried to put a direct link, but I couldn’t get it to work and my IT man is out of town. Basically I purchased a 12″ foam floral wreath (the directions say 8″ but I wanted mine a little bigger). And then the fun begins…wrapping 3 skeins of fun fur yarn around the wreath, tightly to form “grass”. I finally finished my wrapping last night. Then I purchased 1 yard of daisy trim. I clipped each daisy apart and inserted a quilting pin with a yellow head to match the yellow center of my daisies. I wanted pink daisies as per the original instructions, but couldn’t find pink in my local stores. Then I stuck them into the wreath. Not all the way, but raised a little so it looks like they are laying on the grass. I printed the sign saying on the computer and die cut it out with Stampin’ Up!’s Apothecary Accents Framelits. I distressed the edges with a sponge and brown ink, stamped a couple of flowers on it and glued a portion of a skewer to the back so I could stick it into the wreath. I had these Jolee’s foam Flip Flops for some time and knew they would come in perfect for this project. Here is a close up:
I tied a length of ribbon around the top and it is now hanging on my front door. Thank you Lori for passing this idea on to me. I just LOVE it!! I am leaving mine on my front door all summer as it will remind me what grass is supposed to look like when there is enough rain. Hehe. Thanks for visiting.
