For a baby shower I hosted, I thought it would be great to have a Baby Shower Wreath on my door to greet guests - and I LOVE how it turned out:
I thought of the gray and pink theme because I was looking at the wreath I'm making for Halloween (some of you saw this on FB - I'm still deciding if I want it to say "EEK!" - I'm thinking yes...) and I thought it'd make a great base for a baby shower wreath:
So I took the spiders off and whipped up a cluster of flowers and the pennant that says "BABY". I was about to hot glue all the flowers on to the wreath when I realized that if I hot glued them on, I don't think they would come off the yarn without tearing it up. So what to do.....
I ended up hot gluing them in a cluster to a piece of felt. Then I glued a few strands of yarn to that, like so:
And that way I just wrapped the cluster around the wreath and tied it into place - you kind of see that here:
I thought I was a genius to figure it out! Now imagine the possibilities of using the gray yarn wreath for all different types of wreaths - endless!
Here's an upclose shot of the flowers I made and bunched together:
And a backed-out view of the door:
(what, you're thinking "that's not her door" - you're right. My door is plum colored. But I thought the gray and pink would look awesome on a black door, so that's where I had pictures taken. Very observant.)
