My twinsie Erin, friend Lejia and I are going to be starting a Pinterest Challenge. Erin read about this challenge on Young House Love, and we decided to start our own little group (Erin is working on the real Pinterest Challenge button, but for now because I am such an artist…).
We all seem to pin a million things on Pinterest but never actually get around to making them, sooo similar to the ladies of Young House Love, we will be taking on one new project each season. We will have one week to make the project and post about it. This week since Erin is coming up to visit we will be having an arts and crafts day on Sunday 🙂 Cannot wait!
For our spring edition we decided to make a springtime wreath, and I have been madly pinning wreaths that I like. I think we are pretty set on this wreath,
But we have been having trouble finding acorns so we have been toying around with different materials. I went and got my straw wreath yesterday.
Erin and I decided on the 16” one, the other ones seemed too small. The site where we got the tutorial had suggestions for other materials we could use.. like dried lima beans, but I realllly love the way the acorns look. Here are some other options, help us decide please!
I don’t really want to use these, but they are the right size.
These seem to be too big.
Jordan Almonds…. (do these go bad? anyone know?)
If we cannot decide on a material to use, or if we can’t find acorns anywhere (it’s not lookin too good), we might make this wreath instead.
I hope everyone has a great Friday!
Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what we could use for our acorn wreath?
