Algebra was never my thing, a {diy} project

Once all of the Christmas decorations come down with the new year, the house always looks so stark and slightly sad. So when I saw this felt wreath project from design sponge, I thought it would be a great way to pass the month of snow days we are enduring enjoying. And bonus, my very best crafting assistant was on board to assist in the crafting- for an entire 3.5 minutes. A new record.

This diy is actually pretty simple- not one of those 23-step, it-looked-so-easy-on-TV-but-now-I’m-right-back-in-tenth-grade-math-class-ideas. With a styrofoam wreath from the floral department at your hobby store, felt, straight pins and a little ribbon or yarn, you can start wreathing, or would it be felting?

My one note would be it is time-consuming to cut out all of those felt circles, but again, that’s why we have crafting assistants, right? But if you are short on time or patience, you can wrap your wreath in yarn first, and then simply add a couple dozen felt rosettes as accents. The final set of photos below is an example of said yarn-look.

So what is inspiring you today? I would love to hear what your latest crafting, baking adventures include. There are 40 days left in this winter, and at this rate of hibernation I could use a few fresh ideas for the craft closet.

happy creating friends!

Brooke “inadequate” is a word that comes to my mind…I think I’ll stick with algebra 😉 I’ll come to your house and look at your pretty crafts.
