Post by Kim, craft by Penn
I grew up in an incredibly crafty, do-it-yourself family.
Long before Pinterest, my mother and grandmother went to the store and bought patterns to make a lot of our clothes.
Before home improvement superstores, my father would take on massive projects around the house.. for fun. The house needs a new roof? Bathroom need new tile? Why pay someone to do it when you have two hands to do it yourself.
Fast forward a few years. I marry a guy that is CLUELESS. He admits it. So that means if something is broken in our house I dive in to make the repairs.
Penn even pokes fun at my Pinterest obsession. I mean… what’s not to love? The JOY in finding a perfect “pin” and the inevitable TEARS when it doesn’t turn out anything like the picture. I’ll admit — I have an unhealthy relationship with Pinterest. I have more Pinterest #FAILS than successes. Still.. it’s Autumn. This time of year just calls out to the craftiness in my genes.
But this time — I wanted my dear husband to give it a try. I found a great wreath I wanted to duplicate — and of course, there were no step by step instructions. Of course.
So here’s his first try at a Pinterest craft. You have to watch until the end. Classic.
