Then I gathered up some greenery and some flowers, all my baby bath items, some ribbon and my trusty glue gun.
Then I got to work. All I did was tie my baby items onto the wreath with some pretty pink ribbon. I did use a spot of glue on the heavier items to make sure they would stay in place. Then I filled in any gaps with the greenery and flowers. Lastly, I glued a length of the wider ribbon to the top part of my wreath and tied a shoe lace bow out of more of the same ribbon and glued it on. The entire project took me about an hour to put together and since I already had all the supplies on hand, it was essentially free! I didn't have to run out on a Saturday morning frantically searching for a gift. That's always a good thing. Plus, this is a gift that is different from all the usual baby shower gifts and one that Mom and the new baby will remember and get a lot of use out of. I'm pleased with how it turned out.
