Remember this yarn wreath I decorated for Mother’s Day? Well, since I’m still looking for letters that are the right size in order to finish it I thought I’d give it a little revamp for the upcoming Father’s Day weekend.
When I saw this idea from Rhonda at Home Made I thought it was so stinking adorable! And since I hadn’t completed my Mother’s Day wreath it was an easy excuse to revamp the form and try Rhonda's look. Again, this is the same wreath form I wrapped with gray yarn for Mother’s Day with “dad” paraphernalia added.
Using a white button shirt that my son had outgrown I snipped out the front placket as well as the collar. The bow tie is a ribbon doubled over itself with a smaller piece looped over the center. Remember, I’m still looking for the right size letters so forgive the crude cut out ones here and that they're hanging a little crooked (apparently the straight pin holding them in wasn't much of a straight pin). The black you see on the letters is some black paper letters used for poster decorating. I wanted to go with a darker color for dad since the white foam core was too stark with the white shirt.
Rhonda added a cute boutonniere but a piece of material to create a handkerchief would be adorable too. Or if Dad falls in more of the “geek” category wouldn’t it be cute to also cut out the shirt pocket and attach it filled with pens in a pocket protector!?! Yep, I’d be the daughter that would totally do that! Hope everyone has a great Father's Day weekend!
PSST - I've got some big plans for this basic wreath form I'll post about once their complete!
