{Yarn Wreath Love <3}

This past December I met up with my friend Kristel & to make yarn wreaths. I was itching to fit in some crafting time & I was so thankful that I finally did, because I think I may have found yet another craft that I could become absolutely obsessed with. Making yarn wreaths is incredibly easy & fun. Kristel found the directions online & we went from there. Although the steps are rather time consuming I personally enjoy using the time to think or to catch up on some TV, or in my case my favorite television series on DVD. Within that same week of making my first yarn wreath, I managed to make three more and get through Season 1 of Prison Break. A great combination by the way: criminals + yarn = an incredible evening <3. If you like what you see, let me know. I would love to see if I could possibly make some profit off of my hard work so let me know if you think someone, somewhere would buy a yarn wreath made specially by me.

Ss Tag I couldn’t send Steph’s birthday frame alone so I made this tag to go with it (although my husband is convinced that it is merely a fancy bookmark). I used most of the same materials that I used to make the frame so that they would match.I am completely obsessed with the K&Company stamps my sister bought be for my birthday so I couldn’t resist using the butterfly stamps yet again on this tag. I made the butterflies 3D so that they popped off the page, to give it some added dimension.

There are so many little details that went into making this tag, but they are difficult to see in a measly photo (especially one taken with my iphone). But nonetheless I think it turned out to be rather beautiful, but then again I’m probably not my best critic. Please let me know what you think about this tag at the end of this post by completing a quick and easy poll.

From left to right: (Left) This is a picture of both the tag and the frame that were made as a birthday for my friend Stephanie. (Middle) This is a close-up picture of the butterflies I made in 3D to give the tag an extra “pop”. (Right) This was the finished product of Steph’s gift. I picked matching wrapping paper and a cute little flower embellishment to make it girly and cutesy!
