This weekend was a fun filled weekend with lots of friends and lots of laughs! Plus… I did some crafting! I found a tutorial about making a wreath on Craft Envy and decided to give a whirl.
Here is what I bought: lima beans (cheap!), Styrofoam wreath, twine, fake butterflies, and white spray paint. I got everything from Michael’s except for the lima beans. Side note: Look what friend I got there too.
And… I liked the glossy white so much I changed this old friend, again!
Back to the wreath! Staci, my friend that I always manage to talk into crafting with me, decided to use the glass beads (used to fill vases and stuff… I don’t know the technical name) instead of beans, and she used ribbon and flowers for her accents. Here is our set up. Candy is a MUST!!!
Our first step… glue, glue, glue, and glue! I glued the whole front and side of the wreath with beans. Side note, try not to burn yourself multiple times. Words will fly out of your mouth so fast you won’t have a chance to stop it.
We left a few inches without beans/beads so that we could add the twine/ribbon. Once we finished that we primed Staci’s and then spray painted both of ours glossy white. We did a couple coats, but I don’t mind the green showing a little bit. Just my personal opinion.
And, here is the final result on my door. Loves it!!!
