I love, love, love that quote - "Please Excuse the Mess, Children Making Memories". I've seen wall hangings with that quote -- and there are some cute ones out there. I didn't want a wall hanging though. I wanted something to stand out....something that you would see right away as you entered our home. So I thought about how I could turn this into a wreath.
I think I succeeded!
Our front door is a dark green. I wanted something that would look good on the door but yet still express that we had kids in the house. And you can't go wrong with primary colors!
I took a foam wreath form and wrapped it with a base of white yarn and then wrapped individual strands of primary colored yarn once around it.
I had these wood plaques that I was going to use for another project, but I didn't use them, so they were still sitting around. I painted them green.
Then, using some letter stickers and other embellishments from my massive stash, I spelled out the quote over the two plaques. A couple of crayons and a little hot glue and viola! Adorable front door wreath!
So now that it's officially on my door - that gives me a pass for skipping the housework......right??
