i was feeling festive last week, and wanted to make something. i had already taken my daily trek through the freezing winds and ice pellets, so had to settle with using the craft supplies i have. i didn't think i had anything christmassy, so it was a nice challenge, raiding the closet with as much imagination as i could muster.
1 glue gun, lots of refill sticks
1 empty boot box
1/2 a bag of cranberry scented potpourri
1 exacto knife
so i unfolded the boot box and had a reasonable amount of cardboard. i cut out a circle, free-hand - nothing like a little whimsy to add personality to a craft. (okay, i just didn't bother finding something round to trace.)
then i hot-glued the potpourri onto the cardboard ring, and ta-dah, i had an envy-of-etsy cranberry scented christmas wreath!
(okay, etsy wouldn't touch it. but the cardboard doesn't show and it smells good.) for extra festive oomph, i added it to the gorgeous star hanging in my kitchen (a goodbye gift from katie).
also, it wouldn't be a day in my life if i didn't injure myself in some way ...
the glue gun somehow found its way to my arm, now i am sporting what looks suspiciously like a cigarette burn - just in time for the holidays.
