This week, you will notice something extremely different in this week's Helpful How-To.
A distinct lack of sarcasm.
This week, I may actually have a how-to that you would be interested in hearing about!
My new friend Roberta asked for a tutorial on the wreaths that I posted from my weekend, thus making this week's HHT extremely easy for me.
You remember these girls, right?
Yeah, it's been less than a week, but I think it's love.
They have taken up semi-permanent residence in my home.
The burlap wreath (up top) took about 2 hours total to make and way less fabric than you would ever think. Maybe 1/2 a yard of burlap....
Anyway, I made it using this tutorial (because, let's face it, why would I type it out, when someone else already did?)
You may notice the adorable little flower pinned on it????
You didn't? Ok, look again....
Yes. The brown blotch at the bottom of the wreath....
It's a FLOWER pin. Yes, I know, it doesn't really LOOK LIKE A FLOWER. But you can blame that on the crappy cell phone picture. Because it totally does in real life.
And for that I used this tutorial. Which I LOVE.
Have I ever told you that Jone's Design is by far, my favorite blog ever?
Maybe even more than PW.... *Gasp* Wait...Am I allowed to say that? Sorry, blogworld.
The second wreath took a little more time. But is so worth it. And again, I totally stole it straight from High Heels and a Hammer. Because that's how I roll!
Unoriginal ideas. HERE I COME!
Be on guard though, cause I have another wreath form or two, and I am pretty sure that I MUST have one of these beauties before Christmas!
I am beginning to wonder how many wreaths one can have in their house without people questioning your sanity.
Also wondering if these would make acceptable Christmas gifts. Because 'tis the season.
What do you think?
Do you enjoy the less sarcastic side of me?
Or did you even notice the lack of sarcasm?
Do tell! Do tell!!!
