Gettin Crafty - My First Front Door Wreath

 
 
I really love all things crafty, and I have barely posted anything regarding them on here.  Well, I'm starting a new label today and you will see more "Gettin' Crafty blogs from time to time as I create little things that make me smile.
 
This wreath started as a Christmas project (which of course I did not document) and was transformed into this post holidays.  When I approach my front door, I cannot help but smile (ironically I guess).  The solid foam center wrapped in navy yarn was easily the most time consuming part of the project.   Putting the whole thing together with bits and pieces of things I refused to throw away because "I would find a use for them later" made me smile even bigger.  De-Cluttering AND coming out with a wonderful finished project was a huge double win!
 
I think the best part of creating is when other people see it and love it and want to know how you did it.  SUCH a huge compliment when that happens.  Well, this wreath has received multiple compliments, in fact yesterday I opened the door to my father in law smiling huge and telling me he was just following directions :) 
 
Can you tell I love my wreath? 
 
What have you created lately?
