Just Call Me Crafty Crafterson.

I’m sure y’all have seen this darling wreath blowin’ up the boards on Pinterest.


I’d link back to the original source, but the link on Pinterest takes me to a blank page!!!

LOVE it.  Infact, I love it so much, I had to make my own. 


I’m not really diggin’ the tulle, so I’m on the hunt for the “perfect” ribbon.  This was a relatively inexpensive project because I had most of the supplies on hand.  I had the grapevine wreath leftover from a shower I helped host back in the summer.  I also had the burlap, twine, and tulle.  I found the black and orange fabric in the little remnant section at Hobby Lobby and that cost me a little under $5.  I also found the monogram at Hobby Lobby for $3 and I wrapped it in twine. 


Not gonna lie.  It was a *little* time intensive, but I think that’s only because I majorly screwed up on the rosettes until I found this You Tube tutorial on how to make them.  Should’ve searched for that first!  HA!

After A LOT of twisting and gluing, secure the rosettes to the wreath with a little more hot glue and voila!  A festive little pretty for your sweet little home.  And a friendly little warning:  just be prepared to burn yourself a few hundred times with the hot glue gun :)   Now if I could only figure out where to hang it!!!!

I don’t know what it is about Fall that motivates me to start crafting and home improving, but Mr. Spouse says he loves it.  Kind of.  Actually he really likes my motivation, but hates what it’s doing to the bank account. 

Happy crafting!
