Beach-time Door Wreath

It's Beach time!! Yep, you can say I'm a little behind on my summer decor, but ya know, down here in the deep south, summer is here for a while!

As always, I thought about this theme and color combo waaaayyyyyy back in February, but I'm just now getting to it (better late than never!) And, I have a new TOY that is making this a little bit more fun to put together!


Yep, that's right my friends, a brand-spankin' new Silhouette CAMEO! My mom and dad surprised me with it last weekend, and me and Ms. M. have had a great time making its aquaintance. There is so much I can do with this machine, I just haven't had a chance to sit and play with it like I'd like to. It helps a little today as I have every single one of my orders done and shipped!

I've seen all of those pretty yarn-wrapped wreaths and just had to make one myself! I used a $1.00 pool noodle for the base, I had a big ball of white yarn already, and bought 1/4 yard of both turquoise and yellow felt for the felt flowers (and I have plenty of felt left over for another project!). I purchased a box of 3 star fish at Michaels in the $$$$ section ($2.00, with a 40% coupon). I had the muslin-like fabric from my photo pillow project for the banner, so I was ready to go.


Yep, I used my new toy to make the cute letters on the banner(the font is called Strawberry limeade, available for free at fontspace!) I made them with the self adhesive cardstock paper.



As always, I can't thank you enough for stopping by! I've got a beach-themed pianoscape that I'll have pictures of starting Monday! Hope to see you back then!
