Without Pinterest

I am not on Pinterest. Surprised?  I mean, I think it would suck me right in and I see all these other people commenting on how addicting it is and then how they waste time on there.  I waste enough time being on Facebook.  And, I am not real crafty.  I enjoy doing crafts, sometimes but not enough to go searching for things to do.  And, if I need to know how to do something, there is always Google.  I know there are other things to read and find on Pinterest but I just haven't felt the need for it.  Maybe when Kyle heads to preschool next fall, I will give it a try but I would rather just work on the kids' scrapbooks.  Point being, I know Pinterest has been life savers and given great ideas from everything from recipes to birthday parties but this crafty idea I did Without Pinterest.

I have fall wreaths and I have Christmas wreaths.  Both sets, I found at Sam's and felt like I got a great deal on some beautiful wreaths that I love hanging up at those times of the year.  Well, Easter is my favorite and I really wanted some spring/Easter wreaths.  I found some at Tuesday Morning and while I thought I loved them when I first saw them, the more I looked at them, the more I was regretting my purchase.  I thought they were kind of pricey but I do not like spending money on house "fluff"!  As pretty as it makes the house look, ugh, it kind of pains me to spend money on dust collectors.  And, these wreaths did not portray EASTER.  So, I thought up my own wreath but that is always dangerous or frustrating.  Do you ever dream up an outfit or dress or something only to search high and low and discover it's not out there???  Yea, me too.  And, in my mind the wreaths were the crown of thorns, with some white and a cross with some Easter lilies.  Not too hard, right??  I even thought some store might make these....nope.  I had to do it myself.  And, I did.

They didn't have anything with thorns on them so I just settled for some nature looking wreaths.  Used some white burlap, flowers and the cross, all bought at Hobby Lobby.  Here's hoping my glue gun with hold these together.
