On Monday, we got to go to my great-niece Austyn's school and watch her get a Student of the Month Award!
Just barely in Kindergarten, and already recieving recognition!
They had a really cute ceremony, and Austyn got her certificate for "Being Caring".
If you have ever been around this cute girl at all, you know that this sums her up! She is always so sweet, and caring to everyone, especially her cousins! She always thinks of others first. She is happy when others are happy. She is a peace maker. (She is so much like her mamma Lacie!)
Everyone loves her so much!
She was a very gracious hostess, and showed us her school. They had cookies for everyone afterward, and Austyn made sure everyone got one, and had a place to sit. She was so cute to pose with everyone for pictures, and even took a minute to "introuduce" Harper to one of her friends. Super sweet! AND so CARING!
That's our Austie!! We are so proud of her and we love her so VERY MUCH!! Way to go, Lou-Lou! XOXO

I used small clear hair elastics, and placed them about every 8 inches to "bunch" the burlap.
I then used floral wire to hook the burlap (where the bunches were made) to the wreath form, about every 2 1/2 inches.
It was cute! But, not quite right. It needed some oomph. I had a roll of black sparkly tulle that I thought could do the trick. I attatched it, using the tails of the floral wire, on the inside and outside of the burlap. Even though the burlap had finished edges, this made it look better.
I was so happy! However, if I had the choice, I would use regular tulle, because the shed of glitter drove me nuts!
I added some embellishments, using fabric, paper, felt, and stickers. I sprayed the whole thing with clear gloss spray paint, to help weather proof it, and to keep the glitter from shedding as much.
I was able to finish this in a matter of about 3 hours. Not too shabby.
