I picked up a foam board and some crimson yarn and already had a utility knife, which I (or rather Hubby) used to cut the board. I started by using my IU Basketball necklace as a template for the logo and drew a larger version on the board.
I made it through some of the cutting myself before calling in Hubby for back up.
Luckily, he was able to do so without any trouble.
From there I hot glued a piece of yarn to the back and just wrapped and wrapped and wrapped and wrapped. (Sorry I don't have any pictures, I was too busy wrapping.....but seriously, I just wrapped until all the white was covered and I felt it was thick enough, no real scientific method.)
The wreath has held up well. It graces our door not only during basketball season, but also for the Bucket Game and once when the Hoosiers played in the College World Series. I'm thinking this snowy winter I'll make a monogram next and this time maybe wrap with twine instead....stay tuned. Really the sky is the limit.
Last week I Shared My Style with the link up and absolutely loved checking out everyone's incredible ideas. I'm anxious again to see what everyone has shared this week...so much inspiration all in one place!
