Flower Power Week! Day 4 - Springy Yo-yo Flowers

Flower Power Week!
Day 4
Springy Yo-yo Flowers
These are called yo-yo flowers. If you've never made a yo-yo before & want to know how, go ask yo' momma or grand-momma (or google it...). I bet they know how.

You can layer them as little or as much as you want & then stick a button in the center to finish them off to look like a flower.
It's okay if at first sight you're shielding your eyes from all the PINK. Ha! I'm a pink fan so what can I say?!  You're probably already assuming that my husband doesn't like this wreath &'re right.  But that's okay. I'm loving it enough for the two of us! And I'm pretty sure that my sister-in-law will be happy to steal it off my porch one of these days. She's a bigger pink fan than I am!

 Funny fact about this wreath is that the material I used for it came from a skirt that I no longer wear. I wore it for my bridal shower nearly six years ago & I loved that skirt! But...after 3 kids it just doesn't FIT like it used to, ya know? 
It sure made a pretty summery wreath though so I'll continue to enjoy it! AND hopefully the guests that come to my door will enjoy it too!
Next I need to add some LIVE flowers to my steps & porch but for cryin' out loud it STILL hasn't warmed up! We had a frost advisory last night so these will continue to be the only flowers you'll see outside at my house until this non-sense is over with.

Now be honest with me...what do you think?
If I don't see any comments I will assume that you're all siding with my husband...

I'm partying here today...
