Angie from The Country Chic Cottage! {Blog Anniversary Celebration!}


This week Fireflies and Jellybeans is turning 1 year old! Who wants to work on their Birthday? Not me! So, I have lined up some GREAT guest posts and some FABULOUS giveaways for this week!

Let's give a big F&J welcome to Angie from The Country Chic Cottage!

Hello Fireflies and Jellybeans! My name is Angie from The Country Chic Cottage.

You may have seen my... Burlap Bird's Nest



or my...




When Fawnda was looking for people to guest post, I jumped at the opportunity. I just love Fireflies and Jellybeans! So when I stopped jumping up and down -- I realized I would have to come up with something great. Well no burlap this time...I needed something colorful for my front door....



So I made a Crepe Paper Wreath! I don't know about you but I end up with left over crepe paper streamers from parties.



Adding a wreath form and some florist's wire and I had a wreath. I threaded the crepe paper streamers onto lengths of florist's wire.



When you have enough threaded to go around your wreath. Wrap it around and tie it off in the back. I must confess that the back of this wreath is completely uncovered. But it will be our little secret, k?



Keep going til that wreath is full. Yep it takes a while. Is it worth it...yep it is... I cut out an "H" from a cereal box and covered it with pink crepe paper. Glue it on and add a ribbon to hang....



I hope you will stop by my country cottage. I just finished my bathroom redo...





And I have so much more to share with y'all.


A big thank you to Fawnda for letting me guest post...it has been tons of fun! Hope to see all of you back at the cottage!


Many thanks!

I love the colorful spirit this wreath has! It just screams FUN!

I made a crepe paper wreath for Lindsay's $5 Challenge. I used my sewing machine for the ruffles and it went very fast!
