I like to have craft nights. I know what you are thinking…”Jasmin, when did you become a grandmother?” But seriously crafts can be fun, especially if you’re drinking. I had a mini-craft night last weekend and I did the easiest craft ever. By easy I mean it literally took seven minutes. But to drag out this post I’ll start at the beginning. I wanted a wreath for my front door. Wreaths can go ‘country grandma’ really fast but I’ve seen some super cool ones lately.

Next I took some scrap fabric from IKEA and cut strips about 4″ by 3′. Honestly I’m just guessing because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing. I had friends over and I was drinking and eating and this is pretty much the worst tutorial ever. I used straight pins to pin the end of one of the fabric strips to the back of the wreath and then I just wrapped and wrapped the fabric around and then I pinned the end of the strip to the back of the wreath. When it was completely done I used a small strip of fabric to create a ring to hang the wreath on. Does that makes sense? Probably not, but I know you are smart enough to figure out how to wrap fabric around a circle.
I actually really like it. For seven minutes and $8.00 I think it’s a pretty great wreath. It’s nice to have something on my front door, it actually does make it more welcoming. So you should have a craft night and make a super easy wreath because craft nights aren’t really about the crafts they are about friends hanging out and having fun.
