And can I get a WHAT WHAT for the latest and greatest linky party?
Seriously - I have been so excited to participate in the link party of the century....
I decided to start simple.
You see, this Crafty McCrafterson right here is kind of the queen of the disaster-craft.
Also, I am lacking in the perfectionist gene.
So I cut.
Also, I am kinda lazy.
And a slacker.
And see, it is October, and I still have my Christmas cards up on my door.
Yes, as in 10 months ago Christmas cards.
And yes, in case you were wondering, my Blog Sugar suitcase is still only halfway unpacked and on my bedroom floor.
It's my style.
And one of the perks of being a single lady.
I only clean stuff when it bugs ME.
And I ain't buggin.
So for now, I have a luggage strewn Christmas card decorated house.
(And a crazy amount of dishes in my sink).
So back to the PTK - I made the super simple, super cute, clothespin Christmas Card Wreath.
I decided to spruce up the color choices a bit - I used Lagoon and Colonial Red spray paint.
In the pictures, my project kinda turned out a little bit "Go Knights" school spirit in the pictures - but I promise Lagoon is more of a teal/aqua (like with green tones) than a Columbia Blue. So it is like Christmas with a twist. But, um....really, looks blue and red on here. Whoops.
The clothespins kinda spin, but once it is hung flush against a wall (or door) it works.
My spray paint job is janky.
There is a lot of unevenness, and unpainted areas.
And um, the corner pins kinda got a red/lagoon hybrid paint job...but that is the upside to the photos, you can't really tell.
As an FYI I used almost two full bags of clothespins (all that Michaels had, boo).
Anyway, I was able to hang all of my cards from 2010 perfectly!
Which I guess means it's time to put them away and make room for 2011.
But just be sure to stand far, far away when checking out my card wreath. In the words of Cher Horowitz,
"It's a Monet"
And I ended up using the wire hanger as suggested on the blog that was pinned - but the flat wreath form in the top right picture is for another Pinterest project I have in the works.
I don't know if I'll be able to wait until November's Test Kitchen - so hopefully you'll be seeing it around this hood sooner than later! Because there are plenty of Pinterest-ing things I'm ready to start whipping up!
