Craft Swap

3 May

On Friday I sent out the piece I made for the craft swap over at Strumpet’s Crumpets blog.

I wanted to wait a little before I posted pictures of it because I wanted it to be a surprise! The theme was Spring, so I decided to make a yarn wreath! My swap partner over at Geek Inspired loves green, so I thought I’d start there.

  • I used a straw wreath and left the plastic on. I did a little reading and others said it was way less messy that way.
  • Those little white thingies mixed in with the flowers? Yep. Goose biots. I do love feathers and I haven’t done much with them lately (darned school work!)…
  • I used a lot of hot glue (and burned myself)
  • The roses are made from felt! Check it out! I learned to make them at the Take Heart blog. (Her blog is G-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!)
Ever since I saw Alycia’s wreath from The Curious Pug I’ve been dying to try my hand. Now I need to make one for my house! I loved making it and I love how it turned out. My only regret? Not taking more pictures and better pictures to show you guys Cheers! xoxo
Update These are what I received in return:
