In-between Wreath

I made this wreath for my mom to have has an IN-BETWEEN WREATH to hang up when its not a holiday. I think it turned out great! Can't wait to give it to her!
The wreath itself is super easy to make... just pick out some yarn... start wrapping it around the wreath... this is the boring part, it took me a good 30 min plus! Than after that the fun starts! I made flowers out of felt and variety of fabrics. The more different textures the better! I painted the letter and antiqued a bit to make it look more rustic! I used shells, buttons, rocks, feathers and ribbon (basically anything I could find) to add to the overall effect!
The finished product turned out a lot better than I thought... I really had no idea what I was doing. I saw it on etsy and thought what a great idea! :) So I made my own version! Can't wait to make more!
