On the Radar -- So Not Your Granny's Wreath

From Pinterest.

Ok, so I know that the word "wreath" probably makes you think two things:  "Is it Christmas?" and "How boring! Wreaths are sooooo outdated!"  And that's how I've felt for the past few years.  But not now!  Wreaths have made a comeback, and I am sooooo excited!

I really used to LOVE making wreaths.  I made them all the time, whether for Christmas or (insert holiday here) or just for fun.  Then, for some reason, I got a crazy thought in my head that they were too old-fashioned.  Outdated.  Boring.  But last Christmas, I made a few.  Just for kicks.  And now, in the past week, I have found myself longing to go to Hobby Lobby and scout for supplies to make one.  Don't I need to make a new fab Valentine's wreath?  How about one with blackbirds, in honor of the Blackbird girls? 

While I barely contain my growing NEED to make one, check out the plethora of super creative and beautiful wreaths I found, on Etsy and Pinterest.  From simple to super complex, these wreaths are definitely not boring...
