A Little February Sunshine

When I took down the wreath of jingle bells from my living room door after Christmas, I decided to leave up the hook in an effort to encourage myself to make my own 'all year round' wreath.
It worked! Hurrah!
A few weeks ago I spotted this gorgeous peg wreath on the Hambly blog and pinned it to my 'things I want to make' board on Pinterest - a step towards my wreath.  Then last weekend I found a pack of fifty wooden pegs in the pound shop - further encouragement. All I needed was the final push to help me decide on a colour scheme and then I stumbled across this post on Julie's blog and I was away!


It was really easy to make and didn't take long at all. The pegs are covered with strips of paper from my scraps folder and all the other bits (ribbon to hang it, circle cut from chipboard and the little wooden heart) I already had so all it cost me was a pound!



I've hung it on my living room door and it's brightening up my hall already. Hope your day is bright!

Hi Donna, thanks for joining in and sharing the link to me.

Your wreath is lovely! [And it also made me smile as it was inspired by a project from one of my best friends, Kirsty Neale!]

I've pinned oyur post to the series board now: http://pinterest.com/notesonpaper/a-month-of-sunrays/

Thanks again.

Julie :-)

What a lovely colour scheme, somehow warm and clean and bright all at once. Lovely for all seasons but just perfect for spring! xx
