A Craft? Whaaat.

Check it out! I made a wreath for our apartment door.

I have been wanting to make a wreath like this forever, but I had no motivation until my mom gave me $40.00 worth of coupons to Joann's. Thanks Mom!!

It was so easy to make! I bought one of those green foam wreaths, and picked out some fabric. 

Then I traced the rim of a cup to make some medium-sized circles, and cut them out with fabric scissors.

Then, I took a screwdriver and pushed the center of the circles down into the foam. I thought I would need to use hot glue to make them stay, but they stayed in pretty well without it! 

And I framed Daniel. Haha...

Slow and steady progress...

And finally all done!!

To hang it, I got a piece of ribbon and just used duct tape to secure it to the back. Ta-da!

So easy, huh?

I think I'll probably make some fabric flowers to give it some more color for spring. Or you could just use a different fabric, cut out circles, and put those in a cluster along with your other fabric! It would look something like this:

Hooray for crafts!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I'm so excited to have Monday off!
