Earlier this year, I made a simple burlap wreath to use as a backdrop for seasonal decorations in my home. Each month, I am changing the embellishments on the burlap wreath to create entirely new wreaths to celebrate holidays, seasons, etc.
Here is how I embellished my burlap wreath so far:
I didn't have a holiday to work off of this month, so I could let my imagination run wild. The only problem was my imagination seemed to be taking some time off. I had no ideas....
So, I thought I would keep things simple and embellished my wreath with a nice ribbon bow. I had it up for a couple days and I just didn't love it. It looked perfectly fine, but I wanted something more although I didn't know what.
So, I sat there staring at my burlap wreath one day hoping to come up with something new. Do you ever do that? Sit there looking at something hoping that you'll see it in a new light or from a new perspective? It almost never works for me, but I do it anyway. What was the definition of crazy again? ;o)
After about 5 minutes of blankly staring at the wreath with no new ideas (no surprise), I gave up and started picking up around the house. I gathered some things that needed to be put away when I saw one of Lovebug's flower hair accessories sitting on the table. Suddenly, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I gathered all the flower hair accessories I could find in the house and about 5 minutes later a new wreath had emerged and I loved it! It was colorful, fun and FREE since I found all the embellishments in my girls' bathroom!! You can't beat that!!
