Up till yesterday, there was a life saving device hanging up in our hallway. It had the word “Welcome” on it, which was odd on a buoy ring. Equally bizarre was that it was a decoration in our well inland home.
Alas, it was time for the misplaced welcome buoy to come down. I thought I might re-purpose it into an autumn wreath and I really love the outcome. It cost $3 change, which I like even better. The supplies were purchased at Michael’s with online coupons and a 15% off teacher discount.
I wrapped the buoy tightly with an understated color of yarn and hot glued it in place. For the flowers, I used a quarter of a package of Feltworks multi-color Roving Rolls. The rolls were unwrapped, cut in half lengthwise, rolled into flowers, and hot glued also. I really like the re-purpose!
