Got my craft on...

I really didn't like the look of yarn wreaths when I first saw them, but after browsing Pinterest and seeing so many of them, they started to grow on me.. A lot. So I made one!!! I probably wouldn't have done this if I hadn't found a huge bag of yarn in the basement. Why not? So this is it. Easy peasy pumpkin pie.

Everything I used I had on hand. It was a straw wreath with the plastic still on it (less messy), cream colored yarn (from my basement), red ribbon, and plastic snowflakes I found in my Christmas stuff. Probably from the dollar store or something.. I love snowflakes :)

A Love/Hate Relationship with Burlap... Leaning on the Hate.

So, I made a wreath for fall. Out of burlap. And it sucked. It was messy, and stinky, and turned out absolutely GORGEOUS!!! At least, I think so ;) Now, I'd love to say that I thought this up, but I totally didn't.. I found a tutorial online for a Spring wreath, and decided it would be PERFECT for Fall.. And it is! (Don't mind my ugly door. I'm thinking of painting it black.. or red? but I see red doors and I want to paint them black, haha... yeah, black would be better)

The original tutorial was found here..

But this is mine!! I prefer it..

Well, there are tutorials all over blog land for DIY BabyLegs, and these are the ones I made. I just couldn't shell out 12 bucks a pop for the real deal! Sadly, the socks I bought to make them rolled up when cut, so they were kind of a pain in the tush :P I'm making another pair tomorrow, so maybe I'll remember to take pictures of how it be done :) But I think my model is still pretty cute..
