I was inspired by this blog originally. I give credit where it's due. But I was rather disappointed when I asked a question about the "putting things together" process and was told the answer was "elf magic". Not extremely helpful in my book but hey, what can you do. What you can do actually is use your little grey cells and work something out for yourself!! So that's what I did, after nearly giving myself a headache!
So here it goes. I started with this lot which I showed you a little while ago....
Then I bought a few polysterene balls in three different sizes in a trusted super mega giant craft shop (I don't like to name drop, but we all know I'm taking about the big H here). Here's one of the small ones pictured with my trusted double sided sellotape (sticky tape).
Added some double sided tape to cover the balls one by one.... Gosh that took a long time!!
And that's what I ended up with, a lovely pile of feather light yarn lovelies!!!
I know I showed this to you the other day, but I've got to do this little revealling thing properly!! So, after some rearranging, bow making and excessive use of super glue (the fumes made me feel all heady!!), here's the finished article!! Do you like it? I'm so happy with it!!!! (so sorry about the light, but it was a real struggle to get anything half decent, hence the less than perfect photo below, but you get the idea!)
It's far from perfect, but it's my first ever homemade Christmas wreath and I'm pleased with it. I decided to put it on the kitchen door, so that I can enjoy it to the full. Putting it on the front door would have meant seeing it for about 2 seconds in the morning when I leave the house and 2 seconds at night when I come home, and considering the effort that went into making it, that just wasn't good enough!! So there, my lovely woolie wreath.
It makes me HAPPY :-)
