"Welcome Baby" Wreath

Oh my!  I can't even believe that our newest little man in the house is 2 months old today!  He is the most laid back baby we've had so far and we're just over the moon in love.  His older sister and brother are a little too in love with him.  They hug and kiss him every waking moment of the day.

Before our little man was born, I had the whole house nice and clean and I had all of the laundry continuously caught up.  It was nesting to the max!  Well, I kinda ran out of things to clean and organize so I started to craft!  One of my crafts that I just had to make was some sort of wreath to welcome our little bundle of joy into our family.

This wreath is super easy and very quick to make.  I just cut out a circle from a piece of cardboard that we were going to throw out.  I'm sure it was from an amazon box because we're kinda obsessed over here. Then, I clipped the pins onto the cardboard!  Still with me, here? Pretty complicated, huh? :)

I painted it gender-neutral since we still didn't know if we were having a little guy or gal.  Then, I backed the clothes pins up a little to be able to cut the inner ring. I also made two separate banners for the names and didn't attach that part until we were home from the hospital.

We're still so shocked that we had a little boy!  Truthfully, we would have been just as shocked with a girl.  Our track record of guessing the gender of our babies isn't the most impressive.

What's hanging on your front door these days?  Send me an email!  I'd love to see!
