Sunday Inspiration # 1


Hey Diva's! Happy Sunday to you all I hope your Day has been a Blessed one thus far! I would like to start a new segment on my blog called "Sunday Inspiration", Every sunday I will post a project that really Inspired me to make one (something like it) myself and will hopefully  Inspire you to do the same. I think we are all here to be inspired and also to be inspirations so I thought what better day than to do this segment than on Sunday. I hope you guys will enjoy these segments and I would love to hear from you so leave me lots and lots of comments lol. For the very 1st one I want to share w/ you  the wreath that I made for my front door yesterday. Now this wreath has been floating around bloggy world like crazy lol, I first saw it on Cristi's blog over @ scrappin5littlecupcakes which she said she saw it on Laurens Blog @ larenscreative and then just last week my bloggy friend Candace of mypassion4scrappin also made one. When I first saw Cristi's I told myself "I am so making that for my door!" and I did!

Recipe:
14" Straw Wreath
2 Skeins of Yarn (your choice of color)
4-5 Sheets of Felt
Pepper Berry Pick
2-Pumpkin Picks
Hot Glue 
Scissors
Wire Cutter

Now I followed Cristi's Tutorial to the "T" I used mostly the same materials, the only thing I changed to make it a little more personal was that I didn't use the acorns I instead used some pumpkin picks that I already had in my stash. I also did not use the Brown ribbon I had some of this "Fall" ribbon leftover from a wreath I made last yr so I just used that. I love the way it turned out and it goes w/ my yard decor perfectly!! I will definitely be making more of these I already have people asking me to do one for them so that makes me smile!

I will be entering this project into challenges:
Celebrate The Occasion: #37 "Fall" - Must Have a Pumpkin

~ Keep GOD 1st in EVERYTHING!~
