Number 278 - Doesn't Everyone Need A Shiny Purple Wreath?

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 - http://pinterest.com/ParticularBlair/)!  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!
