I accept the challenge…

I accept the challenge!  That is, the Pinterest Challenge set forth by two of my favorite bloggers, Sherry from Young House Love and Katie from Bower Power.  For the “official” rules, click HERE or HERE, but the basic gist is 1) pin something you like on Pinterest then 2) get your DIY on while putting your own spin on it. 

guess-what-time-2 If for some reason you don’t know what Pinterest is and you are wondering what on Earth “pinning” is, take Pinning 101.

So, down to business…

With the holiday season upon us, the Pinterest stream has been flowing with exciting and unique wreath options.  Here are the two that I managed to pin multiple times.

I tracked the blue wreath back to its original creator, Etsy seller ItzFitz and the white wreath is originally from Better Homes and Garden.  My “twist” isn’t so exciting, I just decided that since I still most of November before the Christmas decor goes up I’d go for a Fall theme.  Enter Joann’s sale on seasonal items for seasons that have yet to pass…

    1. Pretty easy! Cut out a circle (approx 5″ diameter) then start “trimming” the circle cutting a spiral about 1 cm wide. Start rolling from the end that was the center of the circle. I used a dot of hot glue at the beginning just to make sure it stuck then glued the tail to the side of the flower at the end. I traced the base of the flower onto a scrap of felt, filled in the circle with hot glue and stuck the flower on. Once it cooled down, I trimmed off the excess. Tada!
