I decided to participate in the Craftaholics Anonymous Winter gift exchange. This is were you sign up on Elfster and then you get paired up with another crafter to make a gift for each other. I have not yet received my gift from my pair, but will share it with you all when I get it. I sent my project to her last Friday, so I am pretty sure it is safe to link up my project back over to Craftaholics Anonymous.
I decided to make another yarn wreath . . . Shocking! I love making these and believe it or not, I am making another one right now. They are a bit time consuming, but I find them relaxing to make. This is probably the closest thing to knitting or crochet I will ever get. 🙂 My match-up lives in Orlando and works for Walt Disney World. Her profile picture was her with Mickey, so I thought it was safe to say, she is a bit of a Disney nut.
For the wreath, I used a 12 inch round foam wreath and wrapped it with red, black and white yarn. I cut the image using this tutorial as a guide from my Silhouette. This machine rocks and it was so easy to take an image from Google Images and make the images. I cut them on a thick piece of black card stock from Papertreyink and chipboard for a solid structure. Once I glued together the black card stock to the chipboard, I glittered the top of the image.
I made ribbon flower using a zip tie to hold it together and then hot glued it to the yarn wreath I made. I added different sized buttons to make Mickey head and ears.
I think this turned out super cute and I hope that she loves it! Head over and see all the other fun projects LINKED up that someone made for a complete stranger – there is a lot of crafty love going on over there!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “crafting for the sheer joy of giving” pie with me.
