Ever have one of those days where you start one project and end up doing something completely different? I had one of those last week. I went to the pantry to find tea lights for the Patio Lantern Project. When I tried to open the drawer, it got caught on boxes of flag picks which have been left over from several years of 4th of July parties at our house. Then, I remembered pinning this to my Wreath Board on Pinterest.
So, rather than getting the tea lights, I immediately went to my studio and grabbed a wreath form. After all, I had 600 flags, that should be enough, right? See the wreath on the table below? Apparently not.
I went to JoAnn fabric. They had no flags. I went to Michaels. They didn't have a single one either. Then, earlier this week, I was at Hobby Lobby and I found them! I bought an additional 600 flags and brought them home. I was so excited to finish this project and get it off of the kitchen counter! Right after I finished printing the napkins that I was making. After all, that's why I went to HobLob in the first place! Last night, I finally poured the flags out onto the counter and guess what?
See how much better they look with the three sizes "artfully mixed together"?! Um...yeah....me either.
I painted some stars. I hung the wreath on the door. I stood back.
Notice the "white rows" where you can see the form? Yep, me too.
So, I did what any
Whew! That's better.
I've made my peace with the bits of the white form that still show through here and there. Although, in the spirit of "full disclosure", I'll admit that I DID, for ONE SECOND, consider taking it apart and wrapping the form with ribbon.
Moving on now.
