A Very Girly Wreath

A sneak peek!

Since I've only just started this blog, I have a few pre-blog craft projects that I thought I would share with you. I'm still in the middle of decorating little miss' bedroom. She's currently still sleeping in our room, but I'm sick of sharing I think all of us would be better off if she moved to her own room.

Right now our old computer is still set up in her room, but I'm currently in the process of transferring all the files off the old beast and putting them onto my new laptop. {edit - I finally finished tonight! Let the decorating begin!} Some of that has been a little bit of a learning curve figuring out how to retrieve the info from a PC and taking it to a Mac. Thankfully, this process has become a lot easier (and even possible!) in the last few years...

I know, I know...I bore you...

Anyway, here is a wreath I made for my daughters room (I'm all into the girly, girly stuff - I hope she will be too even when she's older)

I got my idea from here:

Beverly over at Flamingo Toes made this uber cute Halloween wreath. Even though I'm not really into the whole halloween thing, I was in love with this wreath. I took the idea and ran with it, changed up the colors, added my daughters initial and ended up with this:

                                  I know there's a wonky bit at the top - it's since been trimmed down a little!

I made the letter out of cereal box cardboard (classy, I know!),  covered in scrapbook paper and distressed with distressing ink.

I still haven't hung it up in the room. It's on the to do list. Hopefully by next week I'll be able to have the computer desk disassembled to make room for the crib and then I can begin decorating in all things girly :)

My sister has similar cute ones that she made for her daughters that you can check out here.
