Crafting

I have a confession.

Deep down inside I love crafting. I’m not very good at it but I would like to start trying. I’ve been perusing Hobby Lobby far too often, now that it is only a few minutes from my house. You can only go in there so many times without getting the feeling that you can actually make something.

I finally decided I would try my hand at something and decided to make a wreath for my front door to jump start my fall porch decorations.

I started off with a wreath that was $6.99 and a roll of burlap that was $4.99 both from Hobby Lobby. I also purchased this metal hanging sign from Kohl’s that was half off and ended up costing $9.99

Deep down inside I plan to explore my more crafty side whenever we move and I have the space to store craft items etc. You can probably look forward to more posts showing me DIYing some things and decorating when and if we ever move. To kick off that content portion on the blog I’ve invited Christie from Living Simplistically to share her awesome post on how to easily DIY a statement necklace. As we approach fall these could be great to give as gifts etc. Imagine these necklace in nice fall friendly colors. I’ll show you my version when I get done with it.

For now check out her tutorial on how to make this super cute necklace!
