a quick and fun project.

I have had quite a few BIG projects on here lately and didn't want everyone to think that BIG is all I do!  I had a rare afternoon where both kids that are home with me were content and happy, so I pulled out some fabric scraps, an old wreath form and some hot glue and went to work. I love being able to pull something together in a short amount of time!  Here is what I created:



LOVE all the colors and how "spring"y it makes me feel to look at it!


Have you started changing your decor for springtime?

Will you please post a tutorial on how to make those flowers? I think I get the general idea but mine never look that...thick? Do you just use an insanely long strip of fabric for each one?
