Aesthetic Thursday- Wreaths
October 4, 2012 § Leave a comment
I. Love. Wreaths. And though it may be hard to imagine, I’ve loved wreaths even before the dawn of Pinterest. When I was a kid I would make wreaths with my grandma. My favorite were the Christmas ones. Styrofoam, lots of thick red ribbon, berries, holly, garland… GLITTER- people, these wreaths were magnificent! Unfortunately, I don’t think any of them have made it this far (styrofoam isn’t exactly material of a lifetime), so all I have left are the memories. Oh, and passion for making more wreaths.
I’ll admit, Pinterest has encouraged my love of them and has inspired a few designs (most all of them in my head thus far), but I finally went to Hobby Lobby and bought a few wreath-y supplies. I love crafts and DIY projects, but often don’t have the time to do it all of the time. So I figured I’d make a wreath that could change between seasons (if need be). So here’s my version of a bare boned wreath. I’ll admit though, for fall I almost like it so simple and plain. Or maybe I’ll stick some brightly colored leaves from my yard in it.
