Just wanted to share a few of the wreaths I've been working on. The first two are variations using a new chevron printed burlap that I found at Hobby Lobby. I left the edges raw and added some burlap flowers and an initial.
I've also been making a few wreaths combining my burlap with some natural elements that I found at a local floral retailer. I love the look of Spring with these two.

Happy Valentine's Day!
I'm just getting back into the wreath making mode after a busy holiday season. Someone remarked that I didn't have any wreaths on my door (for about 2 weeks) so I went to Hobby Lobby for some new deco mesh that I had seen there and came up with a fresh new Valentine's Day wreath. I'm not putting it on Etsy since it's so close to Valentine's Day, but if you know of anyone who'd like one, let me know.
I've also been making a few wreaths for some friends. Here's a Mardi Gras wreath that I loved making! At first it was difficult to find any Mardi Gras material in Georgia, but I came up with some items at a local Floral supply store, found some things at Hobby Lobby and hit the jackpot at some local dollar stores. The Fleur-de-Lis and Mardi Gras ribbon I found at mardigrasoutlet.com, always a great supply for deco mesh!
This is not the greatest picture (I still need to work on those skills), but I made this wreath for a friend whose son goes to Auburn. I hope to be making many more college wreaths this Spring for new college freshmen. I'm always interested in any ideas on finding college decorations for the wreaths.
