Wreath Party

Stripes over plaid was completely inspired by this pin.  I wish my plaid shirt was peeking out more, but otherwise, I love this layering!  I had a date with my friend Brooke to make some wreaths for Christmas, so I had to pose by her gorgeous Christmas tree!

Wreath-making was a blast. We were missing Anne, so we set up the iPad and Skyped her in for the evening.  It was awesome.

I was hoping to make something similar to this, but I had to make a few adjustments.  I had a bunch of leftover twine from when I made this, so decided to use that instead of yarn.  Then I couldn't find any fake holly berry at the store, so I grabbed this giant poinsettia, and abandoned the felt flowers, too.  When I got started, about 1/4 of the way around my wreath, I realized I would not have enough twine.  Brooke offered to loan me some sparkly red yarn, and I decided to do approximate quarters.  She also loaned me some holly berry sprigs, which I think helped pull it all together.  While I was in process, I was pretty worried, but I think it turned out well.
