This week I decided that it was time to finally work on a wreath for our front door. I'm not a big fan of fake flowers, particularly the fake floral wreaths that are sold seasonally in all of the craft stores. So, I've been on the hunt for ideas on how I could make a spring wreath. I came across one that I loved, which you can find here, but I wasn't too thrilled about the idea of painting eggs. While shopping for some already speckled craft eggs, I spotted some crepe paper in the store. Aha! Maybe this would work, mod podged (is that a verb?) crepe paper eggs! Cheap, easy, and the eggs would have a neat texture.
Well, nap time came and I began my egg project. Granted, I had never before used Mod Podge, but this was obviously NOT going to work. The crepe paper was dissolving, not sticking to the egg, and it looked awful! Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture before I threw them away, but it looked more like a first grader's craft project than the makings of a wreath for a front door. Alas, a crafting fail.
I think I'll just buy some great looking eggs from Hobby Lobby this week and finish my wreath. What was your crafting/cooking fail this week?
