It seems that I am finding some creative side to me that has remained dormant until now. I think that my inspiration comes from the combination of simple and achievable crafts at MOPS fortnightly and a preschooler in the house.
There are lots of great ideas out there. One which I remembered from last year was this tutorial and decided that it sounded easy enough to follow. I checked with my very friendly and crafty neighbour to borrow some supplies then had a shopping trip to Spotlight to collect the rest of my materials.
I had an Eva free afternoon while she had fun at the Wiggles concert with Gran and Pop so what better activity to do than make a wreath whilst ignoring the demands of the house.
While doing a lot of cutting (with a rotary cutter for the first time) and a lot of gluing (with a hot glue gun for the first time) I had fun. The repetition was quite therapeutic!
I couldn’t bear to hang it on the front door and not see it often. Instead I decided that it filled the space above the mantel nicely.
I am delighted with the final product and feel very proud of myself. I am really enjoying it’s addition to our lounge room. Luckily Christmas is associated with red, my favourite colour!
