My first wreath...

Inspired by a blogger mom's b-day party for her daughter, I wanted to make a wreath for baby j's 1 year b-day next month!  (maybe an indoor wreath)   Here's my version.  Her b-day party colors are yellow and aqua, inspired by my sister's photo taken of baby j wearing a yellow jacket I made her, against a aqua blue playground slide backdrop.
I couldn't find a branch wreath color that I liked with the limited supply at the local Michael's store, so decided I wanted to use some burlap fabric I had lying around to cover up the straw base.  I was surprised at how much I love the result.   I think there will be more wreaths in the future...: )

I love how easy it is to make rosettes from felt, and they look so good!  These were made with strips of felt in baby blue, peacock, and cerulean blue, twisted and turned to create the rose petals.
