I know this is the post you’ve all been waiting for! I finally finished my St. Patty’s Day wreath and am ready to reveal it to the world:)
BUT, you’ll have to wait until the end of the post. So, you might as well read all about my organizing plan for this week. I’m actually excited about organizing this month. I’m doing a room that REALLY needs it!!
This month I’ll be working on organizing my craft room. I know, it’s probably getting old how often I talk about having to organize my craft room. It’s seriously the hardest room I have to keep clean!
Here’s my March organizing to do list:
I’m sure I’ll come up with some more things to clean along the way, but for now this is my list. This week I will be working on cleaning off and organizing the desks in my room as well as a few of the shelves with supplies. I think I need to make this a weekly chore so that my room doesn’t become so horrible all the time. I’m constantly losing things I need and I never have a clean surface to work on. It drives my husband crazy, even though he doesn’t use it even a quarter of the amount I do. It drives me crazy too, but I’m too lazy to change my ways. SO, this month I am going to start to change how I do things. When I craft, sew or blog I am going to always give myself enough time to clean up after I’m done.
Monday ~ Clean off ironing board (I have tons of projects finished and needing to be finished just sitting on my ironing board. And it’s in the way of my scrapbooking desk. It’s very annoying!), Hang up all finished clothing projects in the closet, find places for all unfinished projects, Clean and organize sewing desk
Tuesday ~ Clean up around my craft desks and organize scrapbooking desk
Wednesday ~ Organize scrapbook shelves
Thursday ~ Organize sewing supplies on shelves in one area
Friday ~ Organize craft supplies on shelves in one area
I will also be working on my monthly organizing goals as well. I have decided to start doing them on the same schedule to make sure I keep doing them every month. This week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will be organizing the garage, cleaning under the kitchen sink (thoroughly), and organizing the pantry.
I’ve got a busy week ahead of me and I’m pumped and ready to go. Hopefully, it will last all week! 🙂
Now that business as usual is over, we can go onto what you’ve all been waiting for….
This is my wreath that I finally sat down and made last Friday night. I LOVE it!! I found the inspiration for it on pinterest, but mine turned out quite a bit different than the inspiration photo! I’m glad too, I want my crafts to reflect me and my craftiness.
I had so much FUN making this!! I was in a local craft store, Porter’s, and saw these burlap little pouches that came attached to burlap rope. They were the PERFECT size for this project AND they were on sale so I snatched them up. I also bought some expensive gold glitter cardstock. It was almost $3!! I couldn’t believe it, but I LOVE how it looks so I’m not complaining.
I bought some shamrock shapes from the Silhouette Online Store and found a cute 3 leaf one that I liked. I also bought a font from the store called, Whale Tail, and I used that for the word Lucky. I made the little flags myself from a shape I already had. I want to use the glitter paper so I had my silhouette cut out the shape with a dotted line in the middle so it would easily fold over.
I used hot glue to glue everything together before attaching with the glue gun to the wreath.
I LOVE how the little ribbon flowers turned out! I think they’re my second favorite part about the wreath:)
My favorite part of the wreath is the lucky banner!! I just think it’s so cute!!
I’m so glad I finally got around to making this!! I’m sad it took me so long and that it won’t hang on the door for that much time this year, but I will be excited to pull it out next year the day after Valentine’s day!! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful Monday!! Come again tomorrow, I’ll have another fun St. Patty’s craft for you:)
