Recycled wreath

Well we made it through the first week of school, YAY!!!  No school tomorrow because he's in the afternoon Pre-K class and they have early dismisall due to football season, so we get to relax early this week.  It's been a busy week because of school so you'll have to excuse the lack of posts this week.

Today I was going through my little stash of cardshock and I noticed that I really didn't like any of the colors for what I had in mind and I remebered something I read awhile back about dying with coffee.  Soooo...... that's what I did.  I love anything vintage and when I say anything I really do mean anything.  Since I haven't had much time in the last week to do much of anything creative I decided today would be a good time.  Landon finished off a box of crackers today and when I was getting ready to throw the empty box in the trash it dawned on me that this was the perfect opportunity to recycle (yes, yes go me ha ha).  So I started with a pile of dyed card stock, saltine cracker box and some ivory colored felt and ended up with a pretty wreath.  I haven't decided if it needs something else or if I like it the way it is, I don't want it to be too busy.  What do you think?  If anyone is interested in giving this wreath a new home let me know.  The pictures aren't the best so I'll take some more tomorrow and get them posted soon.

Happy Crafting!!
