((…possibly with thanks to Maryanne at woolhogs for reminding me that a new Made-It Challenge is underway.))
Take a little circle of twigs that you may have lying around; spray it white; crochet seven little flowers and sew a button into the centre of each one; stick the flowers on the twigs with a glue gun. Once again, be careful not to burn your fingers. Unlike me.
You now have a wreath. You need to find a use for it. Suggestions: You can hang it on the wall. You can wear it on your head. You can decorate a gift with it. You can use it as a table centrepiece. You can attach the bodies of dead mice and hang it on the patio as a warning to other mice that cats live here. Or you can just look at the thing and think, Oh halleluja, that making urge is back…!!!!!!!
To be continued…
HaHa glad to hear it. :)
Thanks, tart :-)
Hallelujah indeed very happy for you. Just wondering who, apart from you, would have a little circle of twigs lying around!! xxx
There’s a benefit to not tidying up very often…
Yay!!! You made a beautiful garland Jill! Did you use willow? I have made willow sculptures in the past…loved it!
Thanks Alison. I have no idea what it is, I found it on the ground in the park one day; guess someone was fiddling with long bendy twiggy things. There’s not much I won’t pick up.
Wearing on the head is v appealing! A homemade crown is always a good thing :-)
I agree, although diamonds and sapphires are better in a crown than buttons.
Hmmmm wonder if the dead mice idea would work??? Cat might sulk though ;)
I could use a variety of wildlife – mice, rats, moles, snakes, birds, geckos…the list goes on. My cats are real brutes, especially the youngest one.
Ooo, lovely idea! My Christmas wreath is still up (it’s actually been there since Christmas 2011 – oops!) and could do with a spring-ish update. I may well have my own version to share soon!
There you go, plonk on some crocheted bits :-) Maybe some green leaves and red berry-like things to fit with the theme?
I’m still thinking about what to add, but I’ll post about it when it’s done!
So nobody was prepared to pose with it on their heads then? Disappointing. Glad your mojo’s back.
Yes, me too. Thanks.
Thanks for the giggle, I sooo needed that! Happy to hear you are back to normal ;)
happy to make you laugh. x
Hellllloooo Mojo! Thanks for bringing us back something FAB!

I love this – cheered me up on a gloomy day :) Thanks
Oh good. I hope the gloom has gone? :-)
We had some sunshine today :)
Tweak it a little and it could make a great clock!
