A few weeks ago, Dragonfly Designs had a giveaway for a beautiful wreath that I could just visualize hanging in my bedroom (which has a beachy style).
Here is a picture of the Giveaway Wreath.
Isn't it awesome????
I took advantage of every way to enter the giveaway for that wreath. But, unfortunately, I didn't win it.
So, I have been thinking about that wreath for a few weeks. This week, I had an evening at home alone with several episodes of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera on my DVR to watch. (I very rarely watch TV without my laptop or some craft on my lap.) Before my evening started, I headed to the craft store to get the supplies to make my own "Beachy Wreath". When I went to the store to buy the felt, I decided to try it with Ecru instead of turquoise.
I was imagining one of those beautiful beaches with tall beach grass and soft smooth sand. The ecru reminded me of a cute little sea shell just sitting on that soft sand. *Totally off topic, but where are those beaches, with the beautiful tall grasses????? I live in California and have been to almost every beach along our coastline (and a couple in Oregon) and I have never seen that beautiful tall grass. Lots of photogs have family portraits on their websites of families sitting in the midst of this amazing beach grass, so I know it exists. Hmm, I have never visited the beach on the East Coast. Will those of you on the East Coast tell me if your beaches have that amazing beach grass? Sorry, back on track.
I went to Dragonfly Designs and used her Tutorial (Click Here to see Tutorial).
Here is how mine turned out!
I love how it kind of looks like coral.
I noticed that as the light changed in my room, it looked a little different. So, I tried a few different spots to capture a good shot. I couldn't decide which one I liked, so here they are.
I'm so happy with it. I hope you are inspired to try one too. The tutorial was easy to follow. She stated that it was a little time consuming to make the flowers, and it was. She also mentions that you need several glue sticks and I definitely used A LOT of glue sticks. But, I think it was worth every one.
