Thank you Pintrest and Hobby Lobby!

So I (like I'm sure many others of you) have become somewhat obsessed with Pinterest! I can pin like nobody's business, but I hadn't taken the next step and tried out anything that I'd actually pinned..UNTIL recently! I am proud to say that I've finally tried my very first craft on Pinterest and it was to make a wreath for Abigail's room. I looked at the instructions, and it looked super easy so I decided to try it out! I headed over to Hobby Lobby to get my supplies and when I walked in I noticed the hot pink and black baby girl section. I of course hurried over to investigate and boy am I so glad I did!

A couple of weeks earlier, I'd been over at my friend Alisha's house and was looking at her nursery for her soon to be baby boy! I was investigating the closet and saw that she had the cutest baby boy closet dividers to organize all of his clothes by month! I loved them and asked where she got them. She told me they had been a gift so I began the search for some for Abigail's closet. I found some at BabiesRUs but they were NOT very cute. I looked online and still couldn't find anything. I looked on Pinterest and found where a mom made her own using wooden rings, scrapbook paper, and stickers, so I figured I'd just make my own.

Enter Hobby Lobby and the baby girl section! What do you suppose that I found while looking on this shelf?! Why only the perfect closet dividers ever! Literally, I squealed because they were so perfect and so cheap! I could not have made them more perfect for her room if I had tried! I love, love, love them!
After I found my dividers, I moved on to get my supplies for the wreath. I got everything and then headed out to make it! I am happy to report that making it was as easy as it looked and I absolutely loved how it turned out! I was SO proud of myself! It's now hanging on the door to her nursery! Here's the final product! :)
 If you want to try making one, here's where I found it! I also love that the one she made matched Abigail's nursery perfectly! I decided to add a little more to the wreath, so I bought a wooden A that fit the wreath, painted it black, and then hot glued it on.

All I can say is yay for easy crafts and Hobby Lobby! :)
