A Summer Wreath

With the help of my 10 year old son and supplies on hand, I can gladly check off my list of making a summer wreath.  Don't you love it when you can check something off your self imposed list?  I do! 


Please tell me that I'm not the only one that gets crazy and insists on doing something right then and only right then because no other time is better than right that minute!  It didn't matter that it was nearly 10pm.  That no child was snug in their bed.  That the laundry wasn't folded and the dishes still sat in the sink.  Nope.  It was wreath making time!

Here's where I think that I'm accidentally very clever.  I wanted to sew the flower layers together with some embroidery floss to add a little depth and cuteness but I didn't have any thread in the colors I wanted.   Not wanting to mess up the flowers that I had arranged, I stuck straigh pins in them to keep them straight.  To my surprise, the pins looked cute!   The pins made it easy to re-arrange and the little dot of yellow, white and red are perfect in the flowers. 

 
I'm still working on the frame on my wreath holder.  It supposed to hold pictures of the seasons in it, but the boutique I bought it from only had the fall and winter pictures with it.   I temporarily put a piece of scrap paper and another flower on it for now.   I'm thinking of putting "Welcome" or "No Soliciting".  Maybe our last name or house number?  I may get to it someday.


Awww!  Don't ya love it when something just comes together and is happy cute too?  Happy, happy Summer!

perfect colors! You are definitely not alone. I have those urges every once in a while when the timing is just wrong, but sometimes I produce the best things during those moments. Much like you've just done! Love it!

Did you handcut the flowers?
