I was able to get crafty this week! It felt awesome to take an hour to myself and
burn my finger, I mean make something pretty!
A while back I made a yarn wreath. I don't know if any of you have attempted this but its hard and made my hand hurt. But they are so pretty! I had always meant to put felt flowers on it but time slipped away and my yarn wreath hung on the door sans flowers.
Well tonight I decided to make a few flowers for my wreath. I want something for the door that isn't so Fourth of Julyish but perfect for the rest of summer. I went to Pinterest and searched for "felt flower tutorials". I found lots! Check out my crafty idea board for inspiration.
So here is my first attempt at a DIY
(more just a gathering of other peoples DIYs)

I followed this tutorial to make the yarn wreath. However I used a styrofoam wreath from Michaels and wrapped it with old baby blankets to give a white base on the inside. I cut the baby blanket into 2 or 3in strips and just wrapped it around the whole wreath until it was covered.
I paid only about $8 for this wreath. I bought my yarn on clearance and foam wreaths aren't to pricey! I'm already planning my halloween wreath!!
Here is a quick guide to the DIY's I used:
