Today, we'll be discussing the craft that deflated every last ounce of crafting enthusiasm in my body and led to my not contributing to this blog for a good, hot minute. It might be my least favorite craft of all time, the dreaded RIBBON WREATH.
|Take a good look at it's pure evil.|
I guess I should start by explaining my dire obsession with wreaths. It is my sole purpose in life to accumulate an unreasonable number of wreaths for each holiday and season of the year, and I'll be damned if my wreaths aren't the best on the block. IT'S A MATTER OF PRIDE AND UTMOST IMPORTANCE.
|Totally, not even a little bit.|
So, of course I thought the wreath was adorable and that it would be super cool to be able to customize it to exactly what I want. Hence, I took on the ribbon wreath project. I went to Michael's and picked out some ribbon, totally ignoring the instructions from the pin. I decided that it might be a GREAT idea to get wired ribbon (first mistake) so that it would be easier to arrange the hang-y bits and make them look nice. Also, my house is the color of a gender-neutral baby shower (a pale, and terrible yellow) so I thought orange would not only match, but really liven the front door up a bit.

Here's how stupid my wreath looks:
It looks totally scraggly!! I'm ashamed!!! Luckily, it doesn't look THAT bad from farther away:
|Slightly better, still terrible.|
If you totally one-up'd me on this project, send in your pics!!! We want to see them!!!
