NUMBER 278 - DOESN'T EVERYONE NEED A SHINY PURPLE WREATH?
Sometimes I get about half way through a project and start pondering....what was I thinking? That happened a few times during this one! It serves me right for being overly sure of myself when a friend asked, "Do you know anyone who can make a wreath for me?" Of course I chirped, "I can!" And thus the purple wreath....
Three bags of every kind of purple accessory, a fir wreath, an array of ribbon, and off I went. I tried to make sure I kept everything balanced but not too matchy matchy. When I got to the bow I had to take pause. Me and bows have never quit got along. So, I turned to my new favorite obsession: Pinterest.com. I have been spending a lot of time over there. Be sure to follow me - Any way, Pinterest led me to: http://www.bhg.com/christmas/gift-wrapping/how-to-make-a-florist-bow/ where oddly the bow didn't seem so scary!
And, voila! Wreath!
