When Insomnia and Crafting Collide - Patriotic Wreath

>> Sunday, June 12, 2011

I couldn't sleep last night.  I was so tired, but I just couldn't sleep.  So, I pulled out the crafting supplies and got to work! 

I had this wreath form sitting in a box in my laundry room for awhile.  Before My Marine left, I asked him to measure out 9 spaces on the wreath for me.....which he did using formulas and equations that would probably put NASA to shame.

Then I started wrapping it with red, white, and blue yarn.  I found this really cool "boucle-like" yarn on sale at Jo-Ann's a couple weeks ago.  Nani calls it the "bumpy" yarn.  I just think it added a bit more texture to the wreath.

Then I made a bunch of red, white, and blue felt rosette flowers and glued some stars in the center.

And then about midnight - like a crazy woman - I hung it on my door and took pictures!

Then I tried to sleep - and failed - so then I started working on my second craft.......stay tuned!

Your wreath is awesome! Very different from anything I've seen. Insomnia paid off, even if you paid for it the next morning =)

I love your wreath!

My 4th of July wreath needs a revamp but not certain I will get to it this year.

Full moon nights get me for the insomnia:-)
