Burlap spring wreath

 Good Monday morning ! I had such an exciting weekend , I can't wait to tell you about it !
But first I made this wreath last week...I wanted to make a burlap wreath and use some of the black /white check burlap ribbon in it. I went to Hobby Lobby and they have decomesh that looks like burlap, so fun  ! So that made the choice easy !
 This time I used a straw wreath for the base , I left the plastic on since it will be outside.
 Don't you love that black/ white check burlap ribbon ? I sure do !
 I gathered the decomesh and used florist pins to secure the mesh to the wreath , then added a blop of hot glue over each pin for security .
 This is the wreath with just the mesh and burlap ribbon
 I added daisies that I cut down the stems to about 4 inches and glued them in.

 Here it is on the front door..I am going to make a pillow for the chair that sits on the porch in black and white this week.. Haven't decided how , but I think I might try painting black and white checks, or do a little subway art in black and white!


 Ok, now for our exciting weekend .. We drove down to Kentucky for the Spring blue and white game.. Our son is a walk on freshman Kicker/punter.. He told us he was dressing but wasn't sure if he would play ..
 He got to kick 3 extra points ( made them ) 2 field goals ( made one , went wide right on the other ) and punted once.. His team won 24-23 ...
 Seeing him up there on the huge scoreboard ...AMAZING ! He is # 90 in the back waiting to kick
It was so exciting for all of us .. The stadium was packed ! They had over 50,000 people there !!!

Thanks so much for stopping by ! Hope you all have a great week !
As always thank you so much for your nice comments !

How exciting to be able to watch your son! My cousin is the punter for the SF Giants-Andy Lee. So glad I got to see your wreath because I need to make a new one. Love the daisies and the b/w check ribbon! Visiting from Wow Us Wed.

Priscilla, I really like the combination in the wreath. Very interesting affect. I can only imagine the excitement you must have experienced seeing your son on that field, but especially on that huge screen. Our grandson has been given a scholarship to Western Michigan for 2013 and we can't wait to see him suit up and hit the field. We will definitely be making the trip from Louisiana.
