The back story here is that Jess gave me a mug from Anthropology with an S on it. It was Aqua and Red, and you know I love that color combo. Then I picked up a few of them for Christmas gifts; one of them being a B for Becker.
I am so in love with these mugs.
Apparently so is Hollywood. Look, the M mug debuted on ABC last week in the hands of Snow White on Once Upon A Time. (I also spotted this monogrammed mug on Snow's nightstand a few episodes back.)
When craft night with Jess came along, I picked up some mug inspired teal yarn from the Dollar Tree. Did you know you could get yarn for $1? I also found a small straw wreath form that I got from Salvation Army for $0.50.
Lucky for me, Jess had mustard colored startched felt on hand - and so graciously let me hack away at it. I wrapped the straw wreath form in teal yarn (this step takes forever, by the way). I used the felt to create startched flowers and rosettes, using the tutorials linked below.
My only issue now is the wreath is a bit petite to be hanging on a door. I'm not sure where to hang it. Any suggestions?
