Autumn Craft Fail

Yesterday I posted about an Autumn Wreath using found materials. I tried a second project with the found materials as well, that was not as successful.

I had the idea to use a paper bag and put some gathered clippings in it. I envisioned a rustic-looking bouquet in a paper bag and fastened with a bow. When I began executing my idea, I wanted to try a decorative yarn lacing effect. The resulting “cornucopia” shape is pretty unsightly.

I just tossed this one into the trash can after I snapped photos of it. Not all your craft ideas are winners, and it’s important to realize that! (It might work if you needed it for a bouquet or something, as you wouldn’t see the handle as much.)
