So, in attempts to detract from the pattern, I've decided to hang stuff on the door. We have a Christmas wreath and a fall wreath, but, as it is getting to be more and more spring-like, those two wreaths just aren't cutting it for me. I found this neat tutorial for a spring-y wreath over at PS Capture the Details.
All you need is a foam wreath form, Lime green Lion brand fun fur yarn (which looks so much like newly sprouted grass...the lighting was funky today so the colors are showing up muted), pins, some sort of flower and a ribbon for hanging.
I spent around $14 on supplies. I wound up needing slightly more than 1 skein of yarn as I used a 10" wreath form, not an 8" wreath form as the tutorial suggested. So, I have almost a full skein of the fuzzy green yarn left for another project, along with most of the ribbon, and a good portion of the fake flowers. I would say I used only $8-$10 worth of supplies. Not too shabby for a cheery touch of spring!
