Scarlet and Grey Yarn Wreath

Here is one for the Buckeye Fans!!

Ohio State Scarlet, Grey, Black and White Yarn Wreath.

This wreath is made on a standard 14" styrofoam wreath form that was tightly wrapped with yarn in Ohio State colors.

I used my Silhouette to make and then cut out a stencil for the Ohio State Logo then traced and cut the logo out of felt. I attached the logo to another piece of felt with heat bond. The large felt piece was then attached to the back of the wreath.

Message me if you would like a wreath for your favorite team.

In Memory of Terrilynn Monette

Pink and Green AKA Deco Mesh Ruffle Wreath

A co-worker requested I make this to give as a gift to the mother of Terrilynn Monette, the New Orleans teacher that disappeared earlier in the year.  I am truly touched and honored to have been able to make this for her mother.

Thank you Sapphire, for everything.

Got Beer? Bottle Cap Wreath

I did not drink all of the beer that was required to make this wreath but I did make a small contribution.  I would like to thank my brother Bobby who did his best to drink enough beer to make this possible.  Also, I want to thank my Aunt Patsy for working in a local casino and was able to collect the bulk of these for my wreath.

Lots of Updates Made

I have started to completely redo my blog.  I have changed the layout a little and added several links in the sidebar.  More page tabs have been added to showcase the wreaths that I have made and I have included a link next to the photo if the wreath is currently available.

I am completely done with the Team/Sports Page and Yarn Wreath Tab!  Only took me about 4 hours to get this much done.

I was also able to add a link for my Etsy Shop at the bottom of the page which also shows some of the wreaths that are currently available.

I am hoping to have the rest of the wreaths added by this weekend.

Stay Tuned!!
