I hope the weather is holding out for everyone!! It has been quite cold and snowy here. Monday was our first snow day. Well, the county in which I work had a snow day, which usually means I get one too!! Our agency is pretty fantastic about closing down when the weather is bad.
Onto today's crafty project...Another wreath!! Obviously I have been making lots in preparation for my Etsy store opening. I am making sure I have all of my ducks in a row before I start to sell things. I'm not going to lie, opening my own etsy store scares me a little bit. It's a big step from just blogging about the stuff I make. However, I also like the new adventure. These 25 days of Christmas have allowed me to practice marketing and learn how to use different social media sites.
This is a wreath I made for my in-laws. My better half and I thought it would be fun to make them a wreath for Christmas. All the information I got was the shudders and roof was burgundy. From there, I went shopping on my own. At first, I did not think I would like this wreath very much, but it has quickly become one of my favorites.
I love the browns and the burgundy colors. I had a hard time visualizing how this wreath would go, so I just mixed and matched in the store. Looking back at the pictures, I would say the pictures do not do this wreath justice. I kept the puffs smaller because they have a screen door; however, the floral elements make this a little bigger (I really have to work on that). The "welcome" sign gave the wreath the country feel I was hoping for, as my better half's family lives out in the country.
Above are some more detail shots. I really hate how off color all of the elements seem. I will have to work on that. It really is more of a brown/burgundy color scheme, which is difficult to see in these pictures.
I hope you enjoyed today's wreath!! Have a fantastic day, and check back tomorrow with more, exciting crafty things.
