Friday evening it was raining cats and dogs so I thought it was the perfect weather to begin my Fall crafting. I made some chai, got my supplies together, turned on the You've Got Mail soundtrack, and headed out onto the balcony with Missy to enjoy the weather.
|See? The purple is kind of awful.|
Styrofoam wreath. The tutorial didn't explain how to get it onto the wreath other than "Sew onto your wreath. Just be sure to line up each color to itself." What I did was attached the ends of the scarf, then let it wrap around the wreath. I sewed the sides together on the back, adjusting the position as I went.
|Pardon the bad picture. I was just trying to quickly document.|
The bow, though easy to crochet, was the hardest part for me. I wanted to use a crimson yarn I have, but it's a chunky yarn I haven't figured out how to work with yet. I tried making an orange bow to match the orange in the wreath but I didn't have enough. I finally switched to my multi-colored Fall-y looking yarn. It ended up looking terrible. I have another yarn I'm going to try, but for now I've hung it as is.
I also painted my wreath hanger brown to kinda match the front door. It was gold. I hate gold. It's ugly. But now it's pretty.
I'm pretty proud of it. I planned for this to be my weekend project and I almost got it done in 2 days. I just had to finish up the bow on Monday since I kept having bow issues.
