Caffeinated Inspiration

Don't you love when you walk by something adorable and you almost feel like it is smacking you on the forehead screaming any of the following things....

"YOU CAN MAKE ME!!!!"
"YOU KNOW YOU WANNA"
"HEY CREATIVE GIRL, LOOK HOW ADORABLE AND CUTE I AM...JUST GIVE ME A TRY"

Well it happened.

At Starbucks.

When I laid my eyes on this lil' beauty. . .

Yes my dear readers, it is a wreath made of balls of yarn and ornaments. And i am going to attempt to make one this weekend. I think it can be easily replicated with the following items:

A wreath base of some sort....
Some Ornaments...
Several of these...

And a lot of this...

I can't be the only one who has seen how cute these wreaths are! Have you noticed them?

Wish me luck with my hopeful weekend creation.

Let's get the wreath inspiration juices flowing! What are your favorite ideas for hand-crafted wreaths?

Come back and see me!

thanks for the comment on the blog. the itch really is hard to supress! I think the key is in remembering that I want a wedding, not neccessarily a marriage. and those are two very different things.

can't wait to explore your blog.

Did the idea smack in you the face or the wreath itself... cause the thing is huge and gets in your way when you are leaving.

Let's just say when I opened the box I claimed one of those suckers for myself!!!

My favorite wreath is in this post (amazing timing; I thought I was going to have to search through the archives)..I'm going to make it sometime, probably not this year, though..I can't wait to see your wreath--I think it's going to look great!!

I haven't tried a handmade wreath like that, but I have been wanting to. A little afraid of the glue gun burns, to be honest. I can't wait to see how yours looks!

Kara, yes! I've seen those too, but didn't notice the yarn part. Hope it turns out great. I have too much other stuff going or I'd try one too. They are cute!

Megan said...

Hi Kara,
I love that wreath! I have really enjoyed your blog and your ideas. I chose you as one of the recipients of the Uber Amazing Blog Award. If you would like to have it, go to my blog to pick it up. It is very well deserved!

Very cute wreath idea.

Too cute! I have not seen that little wreath anywhere! I want one too! So-show us all the after and give a little tutorial! That would be darling on my wreath holder! Can't wait to see it!!! Another god excuse to go to good will. They have all kinds of ornaments for 5cents each! I just needed a reason to buy some

CUTE wreath! I haven't been in a Starbucks for mooooonths, so I haven't seen that before. I love it. I can't wait to see your version and be sure to tell us HOW you did it. :o)
