So I have to confess here. I completely forgot about my craft link-up. Like completely forgot. I didn't even have anything posted about it, and therefore if no one links up, I am totally okay with it.
In fact, I may just do away with the link-up part and just do the craft post once a month as I had planned on doing from the beginning.
I guess we will just see how many people have crafts up their sleeves this month. If they even remembered about it.
Originally, I had planned on going to Michael's and getting a styrofoam wreath and then getting gumballs and doing the whole springy/easter wreath deal. Great idea, no?
Well then the toddler decided to sleep. And sleep. And sleep some more. I mean her nap was literally never-ending.
So here I am, with my hair up in the towel, another towel wrapped around my body and an idea just clicked in my head.
I have everything here. Why don't I try something different of a wreath.
If you asked my husband how many un-used frames we have in our home.... he would give you an insane answer. It's almost sick. And a lot of them? We will never use.
So it's almost like a hoarding problem. But you know. whatever. I love frames because I love pictures.
I have lots of "fake flowers" stored in my closet... just because I like to switch them out from time to time. And at first I wasn't sure with what look I was going to go with.
I knew I wanted to incorporate the wooden S that I had purchased at Michaels a ways back for 50 cents, but I wasn't sure what colors I wanted to go with it.
Eventually, I chose colors that would match my front door. Because after-all, I am a matchy-matchy kind of girl. And the whole bright blue or pink or whatever other spring color was definitely not-me, or for my home.
And then the glue gun came out. And I just whipped it up. Just like that. Flowers all around, little green leaves, and that beautiful S. Now. The S was just "wood" so I painted it a very light brown/tan color. And for the ribbon, I used ribbon that I had in my craft box and just painted the white side the same color as my S.
Sure, it isn't perfect. And no it's not my favorite thing ever... but now? I have ten more frames and lots of ideas brewing in my head.
Best part about it? It was FREE to make.
Second best part? I didn't have to make an extra trip to get supplies.
Third best part? The toddler is STILL napping.
Last best part? I am still sitting in nothing but my towels on.
