saw it. pinned it. DID it! (a day late...)


Wait, it's not Thursday? WHAT? 

;)

Somehow I missed getting this up yesterday, which is surprising since I have been anxiously awaiting joining in on this fun with Steph and Katie

Anyways, here is my most recent saw it, pinnned it, did it!

I became obsessed with this wreath on pinterest, surely you have seen it. Well I got crafty one night with some vino, and voila. Wreath made. 


Here is what I used... all supplies from Michaels. I used shades of tan and cream hydrangeas, but you can use whatever you like. I do however suggest getting 9 total, instead of my 6. Apparently I couldn't count that day, but I made it work. I also chose to use burlap ribbon instead of the satin kind. 


I literally just placed the flowers on the wreath where they looked best, and hot glued them babies on. I then used the burlap to craft a bow of some sorts. I found it helpful to use one of those bread ties on the ends of a loaf of bread, to hold the bow together, and I hot glued it additionally in places to make it look the way I wanted it to. I wish I had a more scientific explanation of this-but the truth is I have no idea what I did. Which is pretty much the story of my life, especially with hair. 

Once the bow was made, I just hot glued it on the wreath, and BOOM. Wreath made. Call me Martha Stewart-but don't... 

Isn't it just adorable? If I must say so myself ;) 


Here is my little front door. And no, I do not live at 3333. I photoshopped that sucker. I couldn't in my right mind put my house numbers up here?!? 

I did however make that little house number sign, from products I found at Lowes! I just slapped some dark wood stain to match my door on the piece of wood, painted the top part white, and put the numbers on. Luckily the roomies fiance, Brian, is super handy and knew how to drill it into the brick. Thanks B!

And yes, I have a topiary. Officially domestic. CHECK. ;)

I would love to have a wreath like this but since we live in an apartment building with the doors on the inside, to much snow for the outside, I am worried it would be weird!
