Remember I shared my summer wreath with you a few weeks ago?
I brought out my glue gun, scissors, the left over seashells, the left over twine, and left over ribbon from this project. I tried wrapping the ribbon in between in the sea shells. Nope. That wasn't the 'something' the wreath needed. What if I randomly zig-zag the ribbon in the middle? I like random. I held the zig-zags in place with straight pins...just in case I didn't like the results nothing was permanent.
Ok the random ribbon in the middle didn't look so bad. What else can I add? Enter the letter 'm'. (Does this remind anyone else of Sesame Street? Such a classic!)
It was left over from a failed wedding project. Clearly it didn't match the theme of the wreath, so I wrapped twine around it to make it feel a little more included.
Then I hung that from the middle of the wreath with the random ribbon as a background.
Lastly I used the last bit of green ribbon to make a loop to hang the wreath from. Oh wait. I still seashells left over. So I glued the rest on, wherever they would fit. And voila! We now had this:
And it looks so much better! Even better, it cost me no more dollars! I was fairly pleased, considering I had no plan of action and just pulled it our of my...er...back pocket!
