Crafty Craftiness

Remember this stuff??? Well, I finally turned it into something... match these (they still need a big fat monogram on them).
The finished product is my front door wreath.
The red ticking stripe ribbon matches my pillows. I saw this wreath in a really fun home decor store, but it was around $100.00. What??? Pooey. I could make that myself. I asked if I could buy all the pieces separately and not only did I save a ton of money but I think I did almost as good a job as they did:)
My old home had a navy door and navy shutters, so I had painted my wrought iron doormat navy.
That wouldn't work in my new home, so I took the paint that was used on our shutters and repainted it. I love it with my stained front door and now it matches our shutters!!

I am totally impressed! The wreath is so cute and I love the door mat. Isn't it a good feeling when you do it yourself and it turns out so well.
If you have leftovers, my front door could use a wreath too!
