But for some reason, the grapevine wreath wasn't working for me this time. I think I was having a wreath-block, if there is such a thing. A creative block for sure. My flowers and wreath have been sitting on my dining room table for almost a month. But after I saw Decor Chick incorporate silk on her modern wreath, it clicked, and I decided to give it a go. (geez I think about things way too much).
I went to Michaels's to get another wreath, plus some yarn. While walking around, looking at the yarn in my basket, I got to thinking.... (there I go again) thinking about my attention span, and if I really had the patience to wrap a wreath in yarn. Yeah, I'm thinking no.
Keep in mind, it's late on Labor Day, and Hobby Lobby and the other fabric stores are closed. My choices were limited, and I wanted to finish this wreath that night! My thoughts shifted gears, and I thought about wrapping the wreath in a feather boa, but would need several. At $9 a pop at Michaels, I thought the dollar store would have some boas in the kids section.
Off to the dollar store, and of course, negative on the black boas. BUT, I did come across this stuff...Creepy Cloth. I bought 3. I'm down with 3 bucks.
Before I wrapped, I spray painted the wreath black...
then wrapped the wreath...
I kinda like the creepy cloth. It's basically black gauze, which gives it some texture, and a little funk?
Here is my modern, funky, fall wreath. I love it.
(Forgive my night-time pics.)
(don't look too close at my M. It's a Monet...it looks good from a distance, but close up, it's a mess. I painted it with M's crayola craft paint :)
I'll probably add another green feather at the top.
And I'm sure an owl will find his way in there, too.
But for now, I'm so stinkin excited that I finished a project!!!
