Thinking Spring

oddieFebruary 27, 2009

Made this wreath for my dads door at the NH, says he loves getting them, so I try to keep up with the holidays for him. wanted to stick to soft yellows since hes a guy, bad day for photo takeing, been raining,but wanted to take it to him today , the eggs look so bright yellow, dont know whats up with that, made the bunnie face from wallpaper, double circle with a slit cut in the back so I could stuff him a little, used some diamond dust on the ears and on the eggs.

not over my crafting slump yet, took me three days to make this wreath LOL!

Thank you! didnt get to take it to him yesterday, but hopefully today I can, he will like it no matter what it looks like, dad was a crafter also, his hands shake to much to do crafts now and he doesnt see well,so hes given up on crafts, think he would rather chase all the woman LOL!
always open to ideas of improvment on my crafts.

Oddie...

That is such a pretty wreath! Your dad will love it. It may have taken a couple of days to make it, but it was definately worth the time. You may be in a slump but your talent isn't!

Thank you leveta, glad you cant see me blush, but you know they are easy to make, I did a search for easter wreath, saw one I liked and tried to copy it my way, used the flowers I had from last year, gotton at the dollar tree, wish we were close and I could show you just how easy it is, you know you never know till you try what you can do, have thrown out and tore apart lots of projects, on this wreath alone I glued two different backing, then settled on the white garland sold at Christmas.

You don't need any improvement with your crafts! Your wreath is fun, bright & cheerful bunny will cheer up the NH folks. What else could it need it's great!! You must have the wintertime blues!! Cause your crafting is right on! I was at our Dollar store yesterday & it didn't have any interesting flowers. I've looked several times at DS flowers you folks back east use, they must use a different supplier, I even tried some of other dollar type stores. Really cheap looking. Only thing I found that was ok was some orange poppies with fern leaves no less!!! But they make the "dead from frost" begonia not look so bad until it grows out again in couple of months. Jan

Thank you, our dollar tree doesnt have any pretty flowers this year eather, dollar general ones I never liked, dont know whats up with them, or the answer, have a small shop in town that sold last year I need to check out, want to make one for my moms grave, someone will steal it as they have done in the past but ifs its there a day I will be happy.
Happy Crafting
