My Favorite Things Wreath

This lovely spring wreath is hanging on my door right now.  Can I just tell you how much I love lavender?!  It's one of my very favorite colors, and I realize the color isn't even totally "in" right now, but I just don't care.  I'm diggin' it, and that's all that matters right?

I just used a circle styrofoam wreath and wrapped it in fuzzy lavender yarn.  I finally broke down and bought spray adhesive... and I am so glad I did!  It was a bit pricey, but worth it.  It was so easy to spray it on and everything stuck in place without the danger of hot glue (I always burn myself!) or any extra mess.

Next, I used brown yarn to give it a striped look.  The stripes aren't perfectly even, but that's part of the beauty of it!

Then I started whipping up some fabric flowers and nestled them on a little blanket of burlap... just because!  I started out with 3 flowers on the wreath, and then my Mom (the flower arranging expert!) recommended just 2 more.  After 5 flowers, she again said, "Just two more."  So I ended up with 7 lovely flowers!
Of course I love the center flower the best. I simply ADORE that cream fabric with the lavender flowers.  

Here is a close-up of the lovely fabric flowers.  I just couldn't get enough of these and sewed way too many!

I call this "My Favorite Things" Wreath because it includes so many of my favorite things...
lavender, burlap, fabric flowers, and did I mention I sewed a ruffle to hang it with?  Take a look:

Okay, just one more view:

If you're wondering what happened to my orange door, I did the photo shoot at my parent's house.  Their front doors are much prettier, don't you think?

Have a good week, my friends!
