I did manage to get Windows 8 installed, and had a bit of time left over to make an Easter Wreath. I have been working on getting the muslin for the reupholstered chair done, but that takes a bit more time.
I’ve got a St. Patrick’s Day wreath up now, but that’s only for another two weeks! Then, I need to replace it with something.
I started with a quick trip to the Dollarama. For this project, I spent $8.00.
$1.50 for the cutest little nest ever. With glitter eggs and feather fluff.
$1.50 for these little birds. They’re out of scale with the eggs, but they were too pretty to leave behind.
$3.00 for three branches of pussy willows.
And $2.00 for some green organza ribbon. Total dollars spent – $8.00 (plus tax, of course!)
For the base, I used the Faux Pool Noodle Wreath that’s been my Winter wreath. I think this might be the last incarnation for it, though. I truly love how it turned out. I seem to have gotten everything right with this one.
From the little bird…
To the nest…
And the overall placement of the pussy willows and the ribbon.
I’m thrilled with how it turned out.
It calls for Spring and Easter, but isn’t too kitchy or “out there”. The Ogre thinks it’s the best one I’ve done yet. And I agree.
Submitted to the following parties…
I’d really love to see your comments on the projects I do and the ideas I have. I learn more from critiques than praise, but, honestly, I adore praise (and who doesn’t?).
Thanks for stopping by
