Making Something Pretty With What Was on Hand
It was Jan. 2013...we'd been in our new home less than 2 weeks...living out of boxes..I was desperate to ditch the unpacking and create something pretty for my new home...
Valentine's Day was just a few weeks away...
I was barely through unpacking the necessities, let alone my boxes of craft supplies.
I had found my ribbon...
...And just purchased some red berry picks from Michael's
Christmas clearance..90% off...
...And I had a styrofoam wreath form.
I could make this work!!
I simply tied strips of various red ribbon around my wreath, filling in the gaps with white tulle.
The berry picks were a last-minute burst of inspiration...they worked perfectly to fill in the gaps...it doesn't matter that some of the white styrofoam is still showing because the wreath is red and white.
I hung a mini red clearance frame and made a white felt flower to dangle inside. No real rhyme or reason...it just seemed to go and I was using the bare necessities that I had on hand.
All in all, I think it turned out really cute...not a heart in sight (unless you count the mini clothespin I just added!)
and I didn't even have to leave the house...
except to hang it on the door :)
Have you made anything awesome out of sheer desperation?? I'd love to hear about it :)
