I'm joining up at Kim's Dare to... Deck the Halls over at Newly Woodwards!
I've always wanted a lovely white feather wreath, but I never wanted to shell out the cash to buy one... Last year I decided I'd make one, then Michael's and Hobby Lobby were both out of white feather boas when I went to buy them! Tragedy.
This year I decided to beat the crowds and bought my boas back in October.
I love it! I still HATE the color of the front door, but I love the white feathers! So pretty... One of these days I'll get around to painting the door. Some day. I'd LOVE to buy a new, beautiful, heavy wooden door with a pretty little window in it that actually matches the style of the house and lets me see who's on the porch... But I just shelled out three grand on tuckpointing and seeing as it's actually MY house and not OUR house, that made quite a painful dent in my savings account. Boo. Sometimes being a grown-up blows.
Okay, enough bitching, time for gratuitous close-ups and an unnecessary, and fairly useless, tutorial! Yay!
I added a glittery, little clip-on bird I found in the holiday section at Hobby Lobby. His beak is funny, but he's cute.
I used the largest Styrofoam wreath Hobby Lobby had (50% off, of course).
4 feather boas, also from Hobby Lobby (Not 50% off unfortunately. Those bastards are expeeensive!)
Then I found an end, and used three straight pins to keep it in place.
Wrap, Rinse, Repeat 4 times. And you have a fluffy, fun wreath! Hooray!
This is what the dogs were up to while I was busy wrapping boas.
Must be nice.
What have you made this year? This is it for me... Have you joined in at NewlyWoodwards? If not, go now!
