So I saw this post by Kate over at Centsational Girl and couldn't wait to make something gorgeous out of my weekly trimmings.
I braved the bees and gathered a pile of lavender along with floral wire, wire cutters, a craft ring and some new green ribbon. Then I bundled the lavender and secured it to the wreath with floral wire.
After working my way all around the ring it was finished.
She's a beauty. The day she after she adorned our door the temperature outside reached 108 degrees - for reals ya'll - one hundred and eight. The lavender dried out quickly that day so I had to add a few more bundles the next day to fill it in. It's been about a week and it's looking great.
I chose green ribbon because it matches our summer door mat (Clearance at Target for $6!).
