Another Father's Day wreath

The hubs and I both worked Father's day but we tried to squeeze in some time to celebrate. I made Rosemary Steamed Shrimp and Roasted potatoes off of a recipe from my friend over at http://www.itsamueggelife.com/. YUMM!

I LOVE my plates!!!

Since my father is 12 hours away, he got a card with the promise of future Father's Days to be celebrated. My Father in Law got some crafts. Poor guy. What on earth is he going to do with this?? :) 
He is a golfer. I love wreaths. Meet my Golf Wreath! :) I had the crazy idea to run to Home Depot a few weeks ago and get some AstroTurf to make this. I had some golf balls and asked my hubby to cut them in half. Not as easy as we thought so he found some light plastic practice balls and cut them in half. I hot glued them down along with some tees. I made little flags from tooth picks and felt. I made this bow from the cutest golf-y tartan ribbon! I asked my hubs to bring me a score card from their favorite golf course. He wrote in his dad and his brothers names and gave them all fake scores. You can just imagine how amazing his golf game was according to this score card :)

The Astro Turf I bought was the cheapest one they had and was pretty flimsy so I used a wreath form that I found at an antique store to give it some stability. It was UGLY! A wreath shape cut out from plywood that had three geese wearing scarves?? One dollar? Yes, please!

I liked the Golf Wreath SOOO stinkin much that I made one for us to keep. I used a grapevine wreath and glued down the whole golf balls this time.
This one is still waiting for it's score card. 
I was lucky enough to find wired ribbon that was still the lovely golf-y tartan so I much prefer this bow!


Happy Father's day to all the awesome dad's (and especially the dad's who didn't have to be) out there!
