Flip Flops in Paradise

Due to technical difficulties, Cora Cooks has been lost in cyberspace for a while, but we are back on line and up and running again.

Check back for more posts coming very soon!

In the meantime, I'm still clinging to the last few days of summer with this wreath I crafted with inspiration from Pinterest, of course -- where else?

In fact, with free time on my hands, I've sort of gotten back into crafts. There are so many wonderful ideas and I've pinned ALL of them to my many, many boards. Too many boards? Really?

Can there be too many boards ... or too many pins? Just look at this wreath and tell me which pins to leave out and I'll think about cutting back.

Yeah, right!

Oh, I almost forgot, the wreath is simple to make: 1 large grapevine wreath, inexpensive kid-size flip flops in bright colors, tops cut from stems of bright fake flowers, a suitable wooden sign to span the diameter of the wreath (I got mine at Hobby Lobby) and a hot glue gun. That's it! Thanks again, Pinterest and my Wreath Pinboard.

I am sooooo excited to make this wreath! But....I have been to the Hobby Lobby website and to two of their stores, and no one has ever seen this paradise sign before.....please HELP! It is exactly what I need! Thanks so much!

Cindia, I wish I could help, but I made this two years ago. You know how Hobby Lobby always has new and different things, so this "paradise" sign won't be there, but there may be something like it. It may be more of a summer item, so I'd check back again in a week or two to see if there is a different version of "paradise" for this summer season. Of maybe something similar with a beach theme. Good luck!

Thank you, Cora! They really don't have anything this year that will work. I made the wreath, but still looking for something similar to your paradise sign. Thanks so much and Happy Easter! Cindia

Try A.C. Moore if Hobby Lobby doesn't have it, they carry alot of signs, that is nautical. .
