ALL THE WREATHS

Ok, so I just need to stop making these big announcements on a MONDAY that I’m going to blog every day that week. I mean, seriously. Talk about being blindly optomistic. Yesterday it didn’t happen, and today it almost didn’t either, thanks to a babe and his side-kick pup who both decided to vom and PLAY IN IT before I had even poured my cup of coffee… Ahh… Motherhood.

But, I powered through. I’ve even been able to *attempt* a yoga work out video (no thanks to the overly concerned pup,) and do three loads of laundry (no thanks to the babe who has REFUSED TO TAKE EVERY NAP TODAY). I mean for realz, WHAT is in the water?!?!?!

In case anyone is having a rough “Mom Day” like me, here are some pretty things to help wrap up your Wednesday!

As many of you know from FB, my parents came for the weekend and we had several major DIY projects to conquer. So before they came, I did a few little decor wreaths to use.  Allow me to introduce you all to my latest masterpieces!

This first one was inspired by a wreath in the book, The Nesting Place that was posted on Jen Hatmaker’s blog. I used an old Bible, and it turned out AWESOME. This would be Genesis through Ezekiel. It’s. That. Huge. photo 5(1)On Jen’s blog she talked about how long it took. I was on episode three of Star Trek and was like, “WHAT are these people complaining about? This is going so quick!! And I haven’t burned myself once!!” I burned myself literally the second I thought that. And 7 episodes later…  I was thinking the same thing. It took sssssoooooooooooo long, but was it soooo worth it!! photo(9)And now it hangs in our bedroom. The bare bare walls are finally getting some attention. It makes my heart happy 🙂 photo 4(2)

And I couldn’t just leave a half used Bible… I had to do SOMETHING with Ezekiel through Revelations! So, last minute I made a smaller one for the living room! You’ll see that on the big living room reveal post!

This next wreath also went in the living room. Just a simple grapevine wreath, ribbon, a fall pick, and a wooden letter (which I bought to go on a wreath right after we married and has been on every wreath since then 🙂 ). I LOVE the yellow burlap. Yay fall!!! photo 1(5)photo 2(4)photo 3(1)One thing that I did differently with this wreath was that I attached everything with floral wire instead of hot glue. (Still recovering after the last project.) That way when the seasons and holidays change, I can switch out the pick and ribbon color. Yeessss…. less work later!!!

Hoorrayyyy!!! You have now finished Wednesday! Wrap up everything, get you a celebratory October 1st pumpkin item, and bask in the thought that the week is half over!!! I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to a week at home with my man in my AWESOME living room!!! Hopefully I’ll get that post up in the next week or so.

See what I did there? 😉
