Bountiful Wreath......

Hello and Happy FRIDAY Everyone! I hope you all had a great week and
are ready to enjoy a nice relaxing weekend! I know I'm gonna try!
I've had a busy week with work, no internet, and going to
Flag Football games for my son. I also went to a craft class
last night. So, now let's get this weekend started shall we! LOL
Here's a different type of project I made at my craft
class last night! I'm excited to show it to you! :o)
I learned how to make this beautiful wreath!
I used Burlap (Lots of it) :o)
Hot glue gun
Green wire & metal wreath ring
wired ribbon
assortment of leaves, flowers
It took about 2 hours to create it, but I love how mine
turned out. My hubby thought is was really cool!
My oldest son asked me WHY I used a potato bag? UGH
Then my second son asked me why I used a Blanket?? UGH
My sweet youngest son said it looked very pretty and
festive! That's my favorite response of them all!
I'm going to enter this in the Challenge over at:
Anyway... Thanks for stopping by!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
