Inspired by all the wonderful creations I saw this year I thought I'd try something different!!!
I don't know about you but sometimes when I'm in creative mood I have to make or do what ever it is I'm thinking about right then, other wise I become very restless.
So last night it was about 9.30pm (which is late for me!) when I decided I was going to make a wreath - I hadn't planned on this so I had nothing purchased to help me out. I went scouring around the house to find something that I could make the ring part of the wreath out of.
(You can just see it now, me turning the house up side down and T sitting there thinking 'what on earth is she doing'?)
I had almost given up hope of finding any thing when I had an idea but I wasn't sure if it would work out, but no harm trying it out right?
You'll never guess what I found.......... a cat tunnel! That's right you heard me a cat tunnel!
If you don't know what I'm talking about go here.
I had recently been given a new cat tunnel and was throwing out the old one as it was quite tatty. It was sitting beside the bin waiting to be taken out with the trash.
I cut all the fabric away from the wire, then with the help of T I bunched up all the wire and held it together with zip ties. In my search around the house I had gathered up a pile of things I could use on the wreath one of which was an old lace curtain.
I cut a few strips off and wrapped it around the wire, stuck a few paper flowers and butterflies on, then popped on the big bow - presto a very cute wreath!
Not bad for what used to be a cat tunnel - hey?
Hope you have a great weekend ahead of you :)
