The husband had to work yesterday, so I took my lazy ass up to Michael's and bought a straw wreath, yarn, felt, and fabric glue. I then came home and got to work. I have been obsessed with yarn wreaths since I first saw them on Pinterest. And then I found some gorgeous ones on Etsy, which made me even more interested. The thing is, these things sell for like $40. I figured I could make one for less money, and it looked easier than most of the other crafts I have thought about doing in the past. While watching The Lady and the Tramp (favorite Disney movie of all time) and waiting for the husband to come home, I started wrapping the yarn. Wow, that takes much longer than I thought. It doesn't help that I am a crazy perfectionist, so I had to make sure everything lined up perfectly. The husband eventually came home and looked at me like I was a lunatic.
Once I was halfway done with the wrapping, I realized my eyeball measurements were off, which almost made me scrap the whole thing. Like I said, I am a perfectionist, and I have a hard thing with anything that is not perfect. But instead of starting over, I went with it. Eventually, I finished. While it is not perfect, I am actually proud of it, and I can't wait to hang it up in my house.
More to come (hopefully)!
