You Better Be*Wreath* Me ...

Happy Day! 

Well, it appears that I'm adding "adventures in custom wreaths" to my craziness!  What started as a few close friends asking me to make wreaths for them has now grown into something fun that I wasn't expecting!  I thought I'd share a few orders I recently completed:

My sweet friend ordered a "bridal room" wreath, which, even though I live in the South, I've never heard of one(!).  So, here's my version ... thought I'd incorporate the colors of the wedding. 


Had to brainstorm to create the centerpiece:


"Happy Fall" to a great family who is, hopefully, enjoying this wreath.


"Go Noles" ... ordered by my sweet friend, Melanie, at Southern Comforts in a Northern Life:


My son insisted I make a Halloween one for our door:



Mr. Spider slowly creeping his way around the wreath:


I created this for my friend's fabulous insurance company "Beach Benefits:"


"Go Packs" ... ordered by another sweet friend:


And, we can't forget USC Gamecocks, which another friend is proudly displaying.  Actually, she's not too happy about these as she is a Clemson fan ... her husband ordered these without her knowledge.  LOL!


This Fall wreath is on its way to Maryland:


And, "Go Steelers" ... this one is now on a friend's front door in VA:


Needless to say, I'm so excited that I've gotten several more orders for Fall and Christmas wreaths, and, as soon as I complete them, I hope to open an Etsy store ... got lots of wreath ideas swirling in my head and can't wait to bring them to fruition!

Hi Becca, I'm so glad you linked to my little party!! I was hoping you would...Those wreaths are awesome!! I love every one of them. I can see why you are selling so many of them. Let me know if you have any questions about Etsy. I have been asked to sell some of mine and have in the past. My problem is finding boxes to fit them in! That's why I have stuck to the smaller stuff. If you have a box source I would definitely go for it!! Kristen
