{Tried it Tuesday} -- Front Door Wreath

So it's Tuesday again!
Time for a pinterest project.
I recently had to get rid of the wreath on my front door because it was a dried herb
wreath and was starting to fall apart when someone would walk in the door. 
So this presented an opportunity.
I have a whole board on pinterest of wreath ideas just for this occasion.
I fell in love with the simplicity of this felt wreath.
It was cute, didn't have many materials that were needed and
I could change the ribbon out and use it more than one season.
From pinterest  via  www.chickspicksbyhillary.com

I started with my supplies.
Foam wreath
Pins
Cream Felt (you could use any color)
Ribbon 
I used the ribbon bobbin to make circles on the felt.
I cut them all out and folded them in half and then half again and pinned them into the foam wreath.
AND it was as simple as that.
You can put the circles as close or as far apart as you want it.
The tricky part is when a certain little someone swipes your foam wreath and
uses it as a hula hoop. 
Or even worse she gets hungry and she takes a bite out of it!
But mommy was able to coax the wreath away from her and start her project.
I started pinning the circles on and the wreath took shape.
So Cute!!!
It was a one afternoon project and we were done!! 
Now it's hanging on my front door with its brown shear ribbon and
making all the other doors jealous! 
Three weeks in and I am still going strong. 
Let's see if I can come up with some more stuff for next week!!

  3. You should try it girls. It didn't take long.
    I want to put a red ribbon on it for chirstmas and maybe even make ALL red felt one for valentine's day. Wouldn't that be cute?
