One of my good friends and I were bored one day and we came up with a plan to make wreaths in honor of science. Since I'm a biology major, I naturally decided to have DNA, bacteria and all that fun stuff on my wreath. This required a lot of beads and wire! Below are photos of the end result. Enjoy! And yes, I fully realize I am a science geek!  Grin

You're a biology major who has time to be bored? LOL.

Thank you!  Cheesy

And by bored, what I really meant was I didn't feel like doing work or anything on my "to do" list.....so I procrastinated with this instead! Hehe

Haha yea. Crafting is so awesome that you just can't help it!

I hung the wreath right next to my desk so every time I look up from studying notes or whatever, there it is!
