Hi, my name is Karmen and I like wreaths.
I like to make wreaths.
I have WAY MORE wreaths than doors
and wall space to hang them.
And struck it did just hours before we hosted the girls
and their parents for Homecoming pictures.
I made a stick wreath a few years ago for my side porch. I don't have pictures, sorry.
The elements took its toll on my stick wreath after two years of four seasons
and all but a few of the sticks fell off the grape vine form.
I found this:
|My ornamental grasses.|
I liked the color of the tassels.
So I snipped off a bunch of them.
I laid them around the wreath form to see how many tassels I needed.
Then I just hot glued them to the grape vine right there outside.
With my neighbor giving me odd looks
as he mowed the lawn.
It turned out weird looking.
But I liked it.
In a hysterical way.
I really never thought about if the tassles would die
or if they would hold up to the elements.
The next few days were filled with hard rain.
I forgot about my wreath until days later when I happened to be walking by the side of the house.
It blew up!
Into something from The Muppets.
The girls thought it was hilarious and took silly pictures
using all manner of photo features and effects
that I did not know existed on the iPhone.
|In case you need to see this in black & white.|
But I still like it.
