Craft-tacular or Craft-tastrophy? Chevron Wreath

Monday, July 29, 2013

As I’ve blogged about here, a lot of my recent craft projects have been either full on or borderline craft-tastrophies. After Easter, we needed a wreath to get us to Memorial Day (we have a nice little red, white and blue wreath). After a day at the craft store, I came home with the items shown below and decided I’d go for a little S painted chevron wreath. But I wasn’t sure how I was going to get to that with the items that I picked up…

First I wrapped the wreath in the hemp. This seriously took almost an hour. As I was wrapping, I used hot glue on the help to ensure that it would stay.

Next up, I painted the S with a chevron pattern. I printed some chevron off of the internet and used it as a guide.

So after the S was dry, I had a rope wreath and an S. Originally, I wanted to put the S on the side with some rosettes down the other, but the S was a bit too heavy.

So I decided to go S at the top, rosettes at the bottom.

While it’s been on our door since April, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. I think the rosettes could have been bigger, but I intended to put them down the side vs. at the bottom and was running out of ribbon. Thoughts? Love it or hate it?
