Made By Me for Monday!!!This year I decided that I am going to make a new wreath for every month of the year. In January, I made my WINTER WREATH. In February I made my BLACK AND WHITE POLKA DOT WREATH. Today, I am going to share my March wreath :)
Since March is when we celebrate St. Patty's Day, I knew I wanted a wreath that reflected the "feeling" of St. Patty's Day, without all the well, er, how do I say it? Um, without all the tackiness of it. Sorry, I don't want to offend anyone! It's just that sometimes St. Patty's decor can get a little bit gaudy. Which can be super fun for a party, just not what I wanted on my front door! :)
So here is what I came up with for my version of a March wreath:
|Supplies I started with: foam wreath, zippers, ric rac, material|
|I tore the material into strips and wrapped it around the wreath leaving the torn edges exposed.|
There you have it! My version of a wreath for March. What do you think???
After hanging it on my front door, I just kept thinking that it didn't look quite big enough. I have a really tall door and the wreath was being swallowed up by it! Then I remembered that I had a frame in my storage closet that I kept meaning to do something with! :) Oh HAPPY day!!!
|Frame from my storage closet :)|
|I glued some felt strips on the back of the frame with my glue gun so that it won't scratch my door.|
Then I took some more strips of fabric and used them to hang the wreath in the center. I added a bow on the top and hung it on the door. VOILA! No more wreath being swallowed up by the size of my door. Now it looks just right :)
