We at Casa Petrie took up Lindsay’s $5 Challenge. This was exciting and it certainly made me think of creating in a different way. Hope you enjoy our craft.
Ohdeedoh, Apartment Therapy’s nursery site, has a great wreath post. The welcome baby wreath in this post would stand-in for those cheesy signs that say, “It’s a …”.
So, I roped my friend Brianna into doing the challenge with me and off we went to the Dollar Tree. We knew we were looking for wreaths and accessories, but we had to lean down our options.
Here is what we ended up with:
I ended up using 1 wreath form, 1 skein of creme colored yarn, 1 package of felt cutouts, 1 bunch of flowers, and 1 roll of ribbon. Total spent: $5 plus tax.
Here is where I used some supplies I had at home. I kept home supply use to a minimum, in the spirit of the challenge. I used a tag punch, letter stamps, black ink, and pink and white embroidery thread. The center of the wreath needed something to make it pop.
This is Brianna’s wreath. I like the color combinations she used.
I’m dying to see what everyone else does for their craft. Have a wonderful Monday!
