Snowflakes keep falling on my head

Sorry I've been gone lately. I have been super busy.
The things I have been busy with involve lots of paint... lots of it... gallons seriously.

Soooo posts for the next few weeks may not be super regular.

I promise that I will make it up to you.

But for now here is a quickie to get us excited.

It's getting to be that time!
When my house gets transformed into a winter wonderland.
I LOVE Christmas decorating.
I really wish it could stay up longer then a month.

I thought that a cute simple wreath to show off my aqua front door was in order.



Tada!

Saw one on pinterest and had to make one for me. 



Supplies:
Embroidery hoop
White felt
Wide ribbon
Hot glue & glue gun
Snowflakes (mine came from wal-mart)

Cost? Less then $5

Directions:
• Cut your felt into 1 inch strips and hot glue them around the embroidery hoop.
• Glue on the wide ribbon covering up the hoop clasp.
• Arrange your snowflakes so you know spacing, then glue them in place.
• Go and paint your front door aqua... What? A little much for you? *wink*


I know I know. It really is too cold to paint front doors right now.
But I know that you would secretly love to :-)

All of my love,
The Girl with the Aqua Front Door

What a simple and not "Christmasy" wreath, just what I need for a Hanukkah home. Thank you for the great idea. and I love the name of your blog. I have 2 boys that keep me on my toes.

Judith said...

Wow!!! I love this wreath and it is perfect for a winter theme in a Jewish household. Thank you for sharing!!!! I also love your blog and glad I found it. I have 2 boys that are always keeping me on my toes.

Lovely wreath. No reason why you couldn't leave that up all winter since it's not particularly a Christmas wreath but rather a winter wreath.

Tammy said...

Made this tonight! Found it on Knock OfF Decor

Marcia Pilar said...

The aqua door brought me to your page, but the wreath is perfect too. Love simplicity.

Martha Lofton said...

I love this wreath. I only make crafts for my friends and family. I do not put a price on my crafts cause they are made out of love and is a gift God gave me to do crafts. thanks
