Tee shirt flowers


I like to make things, but wreaths are not my specialty.   IMG_7451

I started out with a $3.99 straw wreath.  Leaving the plastic cover on, I wrapped it up with some yummy red yarn.


I cut up 2 of the baby’s badly stained onesies into strips and rolled them up into flowers, using my glue gun to secure it every once in a while.


Can you believe that I used that weird looking strip and turned it into a FLOWER?   I was surprised it worked too!  lol   Do you see that knot on the right sleeve?  That’s the middle of my “flower” and I just twisted and folded the strip around until it looked ok.  The stained parts were folded up into the flower and are not noticeable. 


I put clips on the back of all the flowers so can use them in my hair, or on a jacket or purse if I want.  They are so pretty, and it makes me GRIN to turn trash into something pretty.

BUT……I've taken it down from my front door already.  Something about it bugs me….can’t put my finger on it yet.   Any thoughts?

does that creative side of your brains ever rest?
I think your flowers need to be bigger/fuller and maybe only three. I know you wil come up with something!
