Well, first I was running early for an appointment.
This is what always happens, I am genetically cursed (or blessed) with the inability to be anywhere "on time". Yep, I'm not late, I'm always early. So if I am late to meet you in person, it's probably because I was so ridiculously early that I stopped at the Dollar Store to buy wreath-making supplies.
That, or my kids had a meltdown/were hungry/kept napping...
OK, so back to the wreath. I'm not the queen of pool noodle wreaths, that's my good friend Shannon at Fox Hollow Cottage, but I did my very best for this one.
First I took a pool noodle and taped it into a circle.
Next I wrapped some found green ribbon.
Then I wrapped 3/4 of it with burlap. There may or may not have been a ridiculous amount of crying for my five year old at this point that "it doesn't look pretty anymore"!
So I immediately added some brown ribbon too.
Then I took my two purchased accessories, a faux berry sprig and faux autumn leaves and let my kids decide where to put them.
I kindly told them that sticking straight out wasn't going to work this time, so we laid them down and wrapped around them.
And on my mantle...
Then it found it's way onto my fall harvest table (more details tomorrow).
We still haven't *quite* made it to the door yet, but that's ok, that's what I get for crafting with kids:)
