I’ve been getting in touch with my crafty side lately, and I’ve actually followed all the way through on a few projects, and will be able to give them as gifts this year. From the girl who has many unfinished and abandoned scrapbook pages, this is saying something.
First there was the wreath that I made for myself.
I went ahead and made three more.
The links to the tutorials can all be found here. As for how to add a hanger to the wreath, I just used a piece of ribbon and some push pins. I’ve seen some elaborate bows on some of the wreaths that I saw online, but I just added these little loops.
The wreaths weigh next to nothing, so you don’t need anything terribly substantial to hold them up.
Then, since I was kind of on a roll making felt flowers for the wreaths, I made a few extra, attached them to pin backings with hot glue, and added them to the scarves I raved about on Style Lush recently.
After making that batch of scarves, I went and bought a chunkier yarn, knitted that bad boy into a scarf, and loved the result.
That scarf took a little longer, but maybe I had just reached my finger knitting saturation point. I think I was past the point where I was realizing that I could actually create something, and I had moved on to just wanting to be done for the sake of checking something off of my list.
As you can see, my current abilities begin and end with yarn and felt crafts, but I’m really excited about giving a few gifts that I made with my own hands this year.
