Completely Free Spring Wreath

I finally got around to taking our Christmas wreath down, mainly because I was terrified that our HOA would ticket me for having a Christmas decoration up in March! The Christmas wreath was from my floral design class and was made mostly with greens wired to a metal wreath form. I took all of the greens off because I figured I could use the metal form later.

My original plan was to make a grocery bag wreath, but less than half way through I decided it wasn't for me. I finished off the rest of the wreath by weaving scrap material through the wire frame. For a finishing touch I added the bow and a couple of flowers made from paper towel rolls. All in all it was a completely FREE wreath for spring. Doesn't get much better than that!

St. Patrick's Day Accessory (and not a tacky Kiss Me I'm Irish pin)

I love St. Patty's day and always make sure to wear green every year. Mainly because I have some Irish heritage (maiden name O'Neil). I am also known to pinch those who are green-less. This year I decided to make my pop of green an accessory rather than looking like the Leprechaun from the Lucky Charms's box.

By the way, I love the new-to-me technique of ruffling the edges of chiffon or chiffon like fabric by using candle.
