Just Like That

Thursday, January 6, 2011

Well, here we are....I've finished my very first yarn wreath!

I'm so thrilled with how it turned out, just had to share!

I knew that when I started Project Make It that I would be challenging myself to actually get some of the DIYs/patterns I have stored away done.  What I didn't realize was how great I would feel making something totally different than anything I've made before.  I honestly feel that by making this wreath,

I have filled a creative void

Sounds so silly, but it's true!

I'm happy that I started with this particular project, because it's very forgiving.  It also taught me that perfection isn't always best.  The slight imperfections add character to the wreath.  The flowers are imperfectly cut, the wreath is imperfectly wrapped, but I love it more because of that!

Okay, that's one!  I think my next project will be the pillows....you can find the link to the tutorial here.

What are you making for yourself/your home as part of Project Make It 2011?

Shared this wreath at Mique's Pity Party!
