Another Summer Wreath!!

I finally got around to making a wreath for my own front door. I bought the yarn (at Big Lots for super cheap!) at the VERY VERY beginning of summer, but I am so very A.D.D. I ended up starting multiple projects, and this one ended up last on the list. Ahhh, like I always say...,"such is life."

It's pretty cute, and my ode to the ocean. :)
I used the same technique as I have for my other yarn wreaths to wrap it, but since it was a rectangular frame the corners were working out kind of weird. I ended up just leaving as you see, and I am ok with that.

The rosettes were made with left over fabric from all the stuff I have been making for my new classroom. (Will post that stuff later when it's ALL done.) I am totally in love with these prints and colors.
What's that? Want to know how to make the rosettes? Is that the murmur I hear from the crowd? Well, you are in luck. I posted a tutorial back in the spring, but plan on posting another one with pics later in the week. Stay tuned.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week! It's bitter sweet for me. I go back to work on Monday after being off for two months. I am trying to get every little drop out of this free time this week!


Summer lov'n ...had me a blast...-

A while back I made a fall wreath with this wreath as one of my inspirations (I had found you originally through Pinterest LOVE that site!!). Well someone pinned it from my post and for the last two weeks my blog has been blown up with that pin beeing repinned and people checking it out via my post where I made my wreath. So I hope the traffic love is being channeled to you as well through the link on my page. Also I am your newest follower ;)

I hope you don't mind people getting inspired from your projects, cause they are Marvy! I posted about this project on my blog with a link to your post here. I hope that is okay. I am new to all this "netiquette" stuff, so if I need to do anything else, please let me know. My blog link is below to check.

Did you spray a weather sealant on the frame and letter?

How did you keep the letter from spinning around?

So beautiful is the frame 5x7 or 8x10? Thanks

What materials did you use and how did you get the letter to stay in middle?

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good
content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever
before.
