Fall Crafting

I have been doing some really fun crafts with the kids and just for me. Here is a great wreath that we made. I was inspired by one on tatertots and jello. She does some great stuff there. Of course we had to simplify it a little. So I made a trip to Hobby Lobby aka Hob lob to stock up on supplies. Several things I learned on that trip.

  • My friend Mary Kathryn (aka MK) and I should probably have supervision when we go craft shopping together. She is one of those people that really encourages my creative bug.

  • Remnant fabric rocks

  • You can pull up the 40% off coupon on your phone at Hobby Lobby and the will take it.

  • I love crafting and hanging out Hobby Lobby

Back to my wreath (I got everything on sale)

  • Wreath form

  • Burlap fabric

  • straight pins

  • lovely fall cotton fabric

I cut out about a bazillion circles of three different sizes and Elaina helped me put them into different patterns. We adhered the circles with a little glue and straight pin and then added a little rope and some letters stamped onto some brown card stock spelling out "Happy Fall" and TA-DA!

I'm hoping to get back on here tomorrow and share some more of our lovely craftiness. Let's home I can follow through.
