Along with sewing, I love crafts. I'm rather particular on the kind of craft, so when I first saw this pin floating around pinterest, my first reaction was "meh"

Then, I looked through my sister's stash of yarn she was donating to DI and I found a skein of some mossy looking fury yarn.
Mossy yarn = mossy looking wreath
So, I made a "Woodland Fairy Wreath".
Can you believe I made the form out of half a pool noodle? Pretty clever, eh? I can't take credit, since I saw someone use plumbing tube foam (you know, that grey stuff they covered exposed pipes with to keep them from breaking), but I did take it up a notch. Instead of doing a flat end, I cut the ends at opposing diagonals, so the foam would make a near perfect circle.
The cost of this project?
I had all the supplies in my stash! The flowers came from an old flower crown thing I made for a Renaissance Faire and the pearl headed pins were from my short lived days as a bouquet maker. I love how my goal for my fabric stash is carrying over into other areas like wildfire. Makes me pretty proud to be using what I have and doing my little bit to cut back on the clutter life seems to collect.
