I thought I would share with you all what I spent most of my time working on last week. Yep, this plain little wreath.....took FOREVER to make! Maybe because I am a slow crafter, maybe because I am glue gun challenged (I swear they give me nightmares) or maybe it's because it took 1000 scalloped circles, that were cut out and then glued onto a foam circle to create this. Yes I said 1000.
This little beauty was created using approximately 100 brown paper lunch sacks. I found this wonderful blog, called MARYJANES & GALOSHES, and she created this wreath. You can find the link for the directions HERE. However I have one question. Her instructions stated she used 6-8 lunch sacks. I used over 100, I cut my circles the same size per her instructions....just how tiny is that wreath of hers? Is it for a doll house? LOL Okay that is 2 questions, but seriously I want to know how she only got away with using 6-8 lunch bags. How big is her lunch in one of those bags?
Anyways, the butterflies were cut out using the Indie Art Cricut cartridge at various sizes. I am happy with how it turned out but I never want to see a brown paper lunch sack again! BTW, a big shout out to my daughter Brittany who helped me cut out the circles. If it wasn't for her I don't think it would be hanging on our door!
