A sleek wreath

This month's Crafty Club was hosted by my friend Erin, and wow did she go all-out on preparing for this craft! We made some shabby chic style wreaths and I think they turned out great. 

Erin purchased smaller Styrofoam craft wreaths at Hobby Lobby, and then created some larger/wider Styrofoam wreaths using pool noodles & duct tape (very creative I must say). She let us choose between a smaller or larger wreath. I chose to make a smaller/narrower one. 

Erin bought an assortment of yarns for us to wrap around the wreaths. I chose the three colors below: grey, a mustardy yellow and white.

And then we started wrapping and hot gluing....and wrapping....

....and wrapping some more....

 ....until I got the whole thing wrapped up!

Sarah added a little chevron section to her wreath. Love it.

For the finishing touch, Erin showed us how to create flowers using strips of burlap. I chose to use grey and off-white burlap. Then I glued them onto my wreath in a cute little bunch.

Andi, so proud of her wreath :)

Finishing 11:00 at night!
Time flies by when you're having fun.

Here's my finished wreath, with flowers and all. I haven't decided where I'm going to hang it yet or how I'm going to hang it. One of my options is to use this cute little chevron burlap ribbon, below:

Or a wider chevron burlap, like this:

I'm sure it will take me FOREVER to decide where to hang it (or set it) because that's just how I am. But once I do decide I'll be sure to post a photo of it!
