Wreaths – Creative Days 2 & 3

Yesterday and today I spent several hours making wreaths.  I have seen various styles, and especially yarn wreaths on Etsy and Pinterest.  I’ve really liked some of the ones I’ve seen and wanted to try it out myself for a while now.

What nobody ever tells you when there’s crafting involved is the amount of TIME it takes to create these things.  Wow, does it take a lot. of. time.  That’s why I split this one up into two days.  One and a half wreaths are about all I can pull off in a day with two young kids at home with me.

So, here are the results of my efforts:
This Christmas “Candy Cane” wreath is one I had seen on Pinterest.  I modified the embellishments, but otherwise it’s not my own idea.  I had originally thought this one would be my favorite but now I’m not sure!
This wreath is probably my favorite.  I’ve always been a fan of the classic black & white, and I had a pin I wanted to use for it.  Like always, it turned out a little differently than expected, but I’m pleased with it.  Baby Blake especially likes looking at the black & white!

This tutu-inspired wreath will probably find its home in Alivia’s room.  I’m not sure if it’s finished or not.  I added the pink wrap in the middle & the letter A to embellish it, but I’m still deciding if it needs something more!

So… What do you think?
I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out.

I still have a few ideas I’d like to try, but I have a feeling they will be waiting for a while.  I did buy several skeins of yarn, so they’ll be ready when I am!

Happy Designing! -Cherie
