Finally Friday: Easy breezy stick wreath & Pinterest in Peoria recap!

Hello Finally Friday! Last Friday I hit the road right after work and headed 2.5 hours northwest to Peoria Illinois--where two of my very best friends live, and another one was meeting us for “Pinteresting in Peoria” a.k.a.  weekend of dreamsBasically we spent the entire weekend thrifting, shopping, crafting, eating, laughing, drinking wine & beers, and laughing some more. There was hardly any sleeping. And no…not because we were partying all weekend...

We stayed up until the wee hours chatting and catching up, and we woke up extra early both mornings because we were excited to spend time together and eat delicious breakfast casserole.  Pretty much we acted like old ladies all weekend. I think we got 10 hours of sleep all weekend. But it was worth it!

Pinteresting in Peoria weekend consisted us picking some pinterest projects and DIY them ourselves. One of the items we made was the easy-peasy-breezy stick wreath for our doors.

The wreaths were super simple to make and was especially nice because we could craft them while gossiping while not having to concentrate too much on the project itself. It could seriously take someone 20 minutes to construct them if they weren't eating M&Ms, downing wine, and gossipping at the same time. But where is the fun in that?!

First, we spray painted our letters/house numbers earlier in the afternoon so they would dry.
A cookie and a high five for whoever can name what numbers & letters are in this photo!
We simply cut the flowers off the florals we got from hobby lobby with wire cutters. 
Before you cut them-- it is optional to take a quick nap with your florals. It may or may not be booze induced.

We wrapped them onto the wreath in an arrangement we liked.

Last, we decided on the placement of the letter/house numbers and added a quick glob of hot glue to secure them.

And bippity boppity boo! Done!

Easy, peasy, breezy, pretty stick wreath.

And the nice thing about it is we can switch out the flowers if we choose since they are just simply wired to it.
