Chaotic Christmas Countdown
Running around, trying to get packed and finish up some last minute crafts!!! Can you say "CHAOTIC!!!!!!"
So goes the story of my life!!! ;)
MC came home the other day with a really GREAT picture that she had drawn in art class!! I am making a tree on the wall, up in the gameroom, that will have framed pic's that she has drawn!! She is the "ARTEEST" in the family!!! But I also knew that I didn't just want a regular picture frame!! I have been seeing around Pinterest and Blogland that people are making the yarn wreaths and I think I may have developed a SLIGHT (ok, maybe a SICK) love of yarn!!! Where has this stuff been my whole life??? Ummmm....where was I??? "ADD" kicked in.....OH....So I decided to wrap a VERY CHEAP frame from Wal-Mart with yarn!!!
I LOVE it!!! I made a small fabric flower for the corner!!! I can not wait to make a few more!!!
Start with CHEAP frame!!! ;)
I cut off a big ball of yarn but you can do it however you want to!! Find a starting place and add a dot of hot glue!! Press the end of the yarn into it and hold for a few seconds!! Start winding!!!!
When you reach the corner, just keep winding but I ended up running a bead of glue on the ends to help hold it in place while going around the edge!!
I made a fabric flower by cutting out three different size pieces of fabric!! I did not make any particular shape!! Then I sewed them together with a button in the middle!!
Hot glued the flower to the side and
WOW!! HOW CUTE!!!!
Not bad for approx $6!!! I can soooo see these made with Christmas colors and putting our yearly photo with Santa in it!!!! ;)
Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
See you tomorrow for
