I threw it in the car and away we went...but wait...my little guy liked the noodle too! As I was driving, he was playing with it and out it flew through the open window. HA! I had to go back and get it. I was wondering if people thought I was crazy.

I actually had a hard time with this. I just was so indecisive about "the look" I wanted. So a tried a few things and I was just OK with it. I decided to sleep on it and I am glad I did! When my sister and I came across chip board letters, I knew I found my final embellishment for this wreath.
I used things I had on hand...get creative with it!
On our visit to Iowa over Spring break, my Mom and Sister liked it so much that they went out and bought the supplies and made one too! It was certainly fun crafting all together, and it got the creative juices flowing a little bit more than usual.
|My Mom chose a moss green and white cord|
|My Sister chose this beautiful royal blue and white|
In the end, they finished the wreaths but not the decorating as we all got the nasty stomach bug that I mentioned here. When they finish, I will update with pictures.

Have a great week!
