St. Patrick's Day Green and White Deco Mesh
Sunburst Wreath
 
Here is another one of my wonderful Sunburst Deco Mesh Wreaths that I made for St. Patrick's Day.  Two different shades of green deco mesh along with white deco mesh.  I also used a white ribbon with green shamrocks and a green argyle print ribbon.  For a touch of gold I added gold deco flex tubing.
 I added a large wooden Irish Welcome Sign to the center of the wreath. 
 
The completed wreath measures about 26" wide and 8" deep.

Valentines Day Red Pink and White Hand Pinned Sequin Wreath

Valentines Day Red Pink and White Sequin Wreath

This wreath definitely took some time to complete.  I used a 14" styrofoam wreath form and used used over 4000 individual sequins.  I created heart patters with the pink and white sequins and filled in the entire remainder of the wreath (front and back) with red sequins.
 
Lots of work but well worth the effort.  This wreath is stunning!!

Valentines Day Pink and Black Deco Mesh Wreath with Wooden Be Mine Sign

Valentines Day Pink and Black Deco Mesh Wreath

I purchased this cool looking waffle weave type pink and black deco mesh last year.  I wasn't sure what to make with it until I started thinking about ideas for Valentines Day Decor.

It's a great patterned deco mesh and the colors look great together.  I also added two different types of ribbon to this wreath.  A pink ribbon with red hearts and a black sheer ribbon with pink and red hearts.

I added a large pink wood Be Mine sign to the center of the wreath.

The completed wreath measures about 24" wide and 8" deep.

Valentines Day Pink White and Burgundy Deco Mesh Sunburst Wreath with Wooden Love Sign

Valentines Day Deco Mesh Sunburst Wreath

Another Deco Mesh Sunburst Wreath to add to my growing collection.  I really like this style of wreath for some reason.  I just think that the wreaths look much fuller and has more dimension.  But I guess that is just a personal preference.

For this wreath I used a combination of pink deco mesh, white deco mesh and burgundy deco mesh.  A great color combination.

I also used two different types of ribbon.  A white ribbon with pink and red glitter hearts and a burlap ribbon with red hearts.

For the center of the wreath I added a large wooden Love Sign.

This is a pretty large wreath and is definitely full.  It measures about 26" wide and 8" deep.

Eric Carle Brown Bear Themed Girls Birthday Party Pink and White Yarn Wreath - Custom Order

Custom Order
I received a request via Etsy for a Eric Carle Brown Bear Themed Wreath for a young girl's birthday party.  I was advised the other party decorations were in pale pink, white and gray.

This is my creation!

I used an 18" styrofoam wreath form that I wrapped with yarn.  I made the small pennants out of a light tan burlap and attached to a stiff felt to give it more stability.  The pennants are attached to a pink with white polka dot ribbon.

The scalloped circles, letters and bear were all cut out of fabric using my awesome Silhouette!  Love that machine!

I also made a few felt flowers to enhance the overall look of the wreath.

I love the overall look of this wreath.  Sorry that the pics aren't the best.  I didn't finish this one until later in the evening and had to pack it up for shipment for the following day.  I didn't get to get natural lighting photos like I normally like to do.

I am always happy to accept custom order requests either here or through my Etsy Shop.
