Welcome Wreath

Hi everyone!

We are finally unpacked! My mom flew down last week and helped us get everything set up. She was such a big help, I had gotten so overwhelmed. There is just a touch of straightening up to do and I can share pictures!

But our front door is all decked out.

Inspired by this pin, I decided to head over to Hobby Lobby and pick up a wreath form + yarn + felt + ribbon (and lots and lots of stickers that were 50% off and a stamp...)

AJ wasn't home on Saturday, so I spent all day working on the wreath. Well, half the day. I spent the other half of the day at Hobby Lobby. I'd never been there before, so I just wondered around for a really long time looking at everything!

But when I got home, I spent the rest of the day making this wreath!

Since it took a ton of time to wrap the wreath with yarn, I would do a little, then take a break to cut out the flowers. Then wrap some more, and take a break to make the banner. Then wrapped some more!

I'm really happy with how it turned out, it makes the apartment seem more homey. I'm already thinking about what kind of fall wreath I can make!

If you had a day to yourself, would you spend all day crafting too?

Oh, my! I had no idea you had never had the pleasure of Hobby Lobby....isn't it amazing??? I love your wreath and all the blues. I am so jealous of you being all settled....I feel like my packing and unpacking is NEVER going to end. And honestly I would kill for a day where I could sit and scrap the entire day...sounds like a little slice of heaven.

Yay for being unpacked and moved in! I can't wait to see more pics! I love this wreath! I think I have something similar pinned that I want to try. Yours is perfect and goes really nicely on your front door! It must feel good to get around and find your local craft stores (I'm SO jealous of HL!!!) and make a craft in your new home!

So happy you are all settled in. Hooray for mom!!!
Your wreath is great, perfect for your new home.
I have only been to a few Hobby Lobby's and have loved them :)

LOVE your door wreath and you are right, it does take a long time to wrap yarn around a form, I have a yarn wrapped wreath too and thought I was going crazy after wrapping it! So glad you are all moved in!! Thank you SO much for visiting my blog, hugs and a wave from the hills of North Carolina ♥
