Lazy Crafting

Since Fall is near (today being 87 degrees not withstanding), I decided to make a Halloween Wreath for the front door.

I searched Pinterest and found some cute ideas!

I loved this wreath from Repeat Crafter Me.

I was lucky to find all the items I needed on clearance at local craft stores.

Supplies:

  • Foam Wreath ($2.99)
  • Orange bulky yarn (Big Twist-$1.00)
  • Black, sparkly yarn (Downton Abbey Lady Mary-$1.50)
  • “Spooky” ($.29)
  • Ribbon ($1.50)

Pretty inexpensive project.

Weeks went by, I finally had time to start the wreath.

I looked at the lovely, sparkly, light weight yarn and lost ALL my motivation.

It is really hard (for me at least) to make an amigurumi black cat.

Small hook, black yarn, need for reading glasses to see the stitches.

I don’t own reading glasses, so this was not going to happen.

Nope.

Wasn’t going to happen.

Then I found this cute pattern for black cat coasters by Sew Crafty Crochet .

Adorable!

However, I was too lazy to do even these.

I know, how lazy can you be to not even make some coasters?

Pretty lazy.

So, I present The Lazy Girls Pinterest Inspired Halloween Wreath!

I wrapped the foam wreath, made some pompoms, tacked down the sign and attached the ribbon.

All done in one hour and making my front door look festive!

Happy Fall!
