By now almost everyone has heard of Pinterest and for many it’s become an obsession. From recipes and crafts, to clothes, scenic photographs, and funny quotes, it’s a great time-waster. I will admit that I quickly got sucked in and decided to make homemade gifts for Christmas.
My first project was to recreate this wreath. The blog post said it took about a day and I had a bunch of smutty romance novels laying around, so one Saturday I started what I now not-so-lovingly call “The Great Twisting Challenge.”
I twisted three paperbacks worth of flowers over the course of a month in order to recreate the pinned project. Apparently, I didn’t read the directions correctly or have the sizing correct on the paper rosettes. Below is my twisting timeline. Moral of the Story: Yes, you can make that amazing thing on Pinterest, it just might not be as easy as you’d expect.
After spending so much time on the wreath, which at this point I now was calling the “god-damned wreath” (and a few other choice words), I just couldn’t imagine giving it away for Christmas. So I selfishly kept it. It hangs on my condo door and already people are asking if I can make them one. “No, I cannot, but I’ll give you some smutty novels to make your own. Oh and make BIG flowers — it’s easier to play hide-and-go-seek for the naughty words!”
