Boy, was I wrong! Not only are they incredibly easy, but they’re a great, cheap craft that adds some unique style to your front door.
OR…to your nursery door, if you’re Wren!
I made this one for her nursery door. I wanted something sweet and welcoming to hang on her door and I had the idea to do this. I think it turned out really cute.
I played around with a “W” hanging, I painted a $1 birdhouse from Joann’s, and I tried all sorts of different variations of the felt flower/rosette combinations. I had “favorited” a sweet little shop on etsy that had these tiny felt birds. And the best part? She actually calls them wrens! So I couldn’t pass it up. I had to add a sweet little wren in her nest…for my own little Wren’s nest!
While I was at it, I got myself a wreath and also one for my mother in-law.
She is one of those people who is absolutely impossible to buy for. She has everything. She is the best gift giver, and you never feel like you can give quite as well as she does.
But the week before her birthday, Josh mentioned that her own wreath was too big, so I decided to make her one!
I loved this yarn so much that I went back and got myself some and am in the process of finishing a wreath for myself out of it.
Here’s how hers turned out:
A closeup of the little embellishments I added:
I spent less than $10 on her wreath, start to finish. Wren’s was a bit more because of buying the little felt wren, but still reasonably well priced!!
Alrighty, friends…time to share your pins!!!
