This week, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Hubby surprised me by telling me that he asked our friend Christina to make 5 pink ribbon wreaths for me in honor of my fight against breast cancer! I was completely taken by surprise and was SO happy to see how beautifully they turned out!
For those of you that know me, you know that every day – for over a year now – I have something on me that is pink, whether it is a bracelet, a headband, t-shirt, flip flops, etc. I wear some piece of pink every day….so these wreaths are PERFECT for me!!!
You may remember the DIY Burlap Wreath that I posted this past November – that was made by Christina too!
The Hubby went on a stealthy mission to Michaels by himself, entire purchase coupon in hand from a girlfriend of mine, and bought the supplies. For each wreath, he purchased:
- 1 Ashland® Wire Wreath Frame – 18″,
- 1 roll of Celebrate It® Occasions™ Mesh Ribbon, 5 1/2″,
- Pink spray paint (for the wire wreath before decorating with ribbon)
She made the wreaths and decided that they needed a little something extra, so she went to Michaels and purchased for each wreath:
- 1 wooden, unfinished “awareness ribbon” (not currently on Michael’s website – but available at other craft stores)
- Pink acrylic paint
