A Wreath For Your Thursday!

Bless you, Craftaholics Anonymous, bless you. Not only did you come to my rescue and save my naked burlap wreath, but you are the queen of quick and simple seasonal wreaths. Your gift is appreciated here!

I pinned this little gem a few weeks ago and thought it was the perfect solution to my poor pitiful wreath. Let me back up, about a month ago I attempted a craft night. Instead, I had a great evening catching up with a friend and all I managed to do was wrap a straw wreath in burlap. Now you're up to speed on my naked wreath.

Back to business! My new favorite blog, Craftaholic's, gives a great description on how to make very simple flowers from felt, buttons, clips, and glue. See for yourself!

Here's what I used:

  • 1 naked burlap wreath
  • felt
  • buttons
  • clips (I'm sure there is a more scientific name for them)
  • hot glue

Originally, I wanted to make my very own St. Patty's Day wreath but as usual I ran into a few obstacles. This time the obstacle was the color green. Yes, that green button is shining visibly in the picture above - but did I notice that last night? Of course not. I was extremely convinced that I did not own any green buttons or fabric of any kind.

Naturally, I moved onto Plan B. What colors are never out of season? Black and gold, baby!

Does anyone watch "The New Girl"? This week's episode was precious and about a situation in Jess' classroom. Check it out!


  1. Jordon- I just love your blog and had to drop you a little note. You have grown up to be such a creative and positive person-I'm so proud of you!!! I knew you were a great kid when I had you in fifth grade and now I am certain you are an awesome teacher. Your facebook post about the snake had me laughing til I cried! But you did learn a valuable lesson that you will remember throughout your teaching career- no pets at school!! LOL! (just kidding- we do a pet day at our school).You keep being you girl-it's workin' for ya'! ~ Sheri Kemp (A.K.A. Mrs. Kemp your ole 5th grade teacher!)
