One thing you need to know about me is that I have a hard time with the color yellow. We've never really gotten along all that well.
But straight-up yellow only works for me under certain circumstances.
For example, I love the yellow daffodils and the red and yellow tulips that grow in my yard in the spring. Here's a couple shots from last year...
So, with this in mind, I thought that it would be a fantastic idea to make a springy daffodil wreath (using a method similar to my candlestick topiary--which is lovely) to hang on my bright red front door. I spent two hours making this...
And it didn't turn out how I had envisioned, but I thought it was okay-ish...
until I really looked at it.
Isn't it kind of reminiscent of Big Bird?
Or something out of a Dr. Seuss book?
Maybe the problem is the shape of the daffodil petals. (Too feather-like?)
Or all of the bright yellow centers. (Too polka-dot looking?)
Or it just doesn't jive with the red door?
Or maybe I'm just a crazy, yellow-hater and what was I thinking doing an all yellow project when I KNOW I have this yellow problem?!
(Probably all of the above.)
But now I need to figure out something better for my front door.
(Anyone have any good ideas on how I can salvage this bad boy? Or should I just rip out all of those flowers and use all the parts for something else?)
