Lush Spring Wreath

Whew!  What a week.  I'm glad to be home, even though we had a fun time in Idaho. Darin's grandpa passed away last week and we headed to Idaho Falls for the funeral.  He was almost 92 so although a bit of a surprise, not totally unexpected.  It was fun to see all of the Warnick cousins and see family was the bonus of the trip.  But it always takes a couple of days to recover after traveling with a 2 year old.  So now I'm back and ready to finish up those projects I was going to do last week.  

My Minds Eye has done it again with their Lush line.  I love all of the colors and that they have houndstooth!
And the colors just scream spring.  Although as my mom said I never thought I would see the day there was pink decorations in my house but here goes...

I started with seven pieces of paper that were about 9 inches x 12 inches and accordian folded them all.

Then I got them in the order I wanted and attached them together with double sided tape...

then the two ends to make a circle.  

I  hot glued a square of cardboard to stabilize it in the middle.  I forgot to take a picture (I do that a lot)  but I poked a hole in the middle of the cardboard and threaded a 3x44 inch piece of white fabric through to hang it with.

Then I glued on a doily and made a coffee filter pom pom to put in the center.

Then I hung it from a mirror!  It has my 3 favorite patterns-polka dots, houndstooth and damask.  I'm having trouble not being drawn to damask can you tell?!

Except now my mom has me rethinking all of this pink!  Can I handle it?  Can Darin?!  We'll see...
