One Bunch Faux-Flower Swapable Wreath

affiliate

Have you ever walked into the fake floral aisle of Michael’s or HobLob or Joann’s and felt like fainting? I have. There are too many options and  more often than not the aisle is a bit claustrophobic. I designed this tutorial to take the guess work out of using fake flowers in a wreath while also being change-able for different seasons and holidays. There is never enough room to store all the wreathes I want to make so I needed this to be useful for more than 2 months. Pick a bunch of flowers with different elements and colors, the great thing is they are all coordinated without any effort from you! Enjoy!

Wooooooooo…… That’s the sound I just made!

This wordpress thing is VERY different, but I think I might be getting somewhere, slowly. I decided to change up the look to go with my new host, I’ll have updated party buttons up soon.

Speaking of parties, I’ve joined up with some lovely ladies to host a Fall Party Series:
