Springtime Wreath

A friend asked if I would make her a spring wreath like the one I made the other day for my front door. The elementary school is having its spring festival with a silent auction. You know, it’s one thing to make something for yourself, but to make it for someone else is a whole different ball game. People actually wanting to put their money out for something I’ve made seems ridiculous, but I’ll give it a try. I did indeed make another one of those mesh fabric wreaths, but it needs some tweaking. I’ll see what I can do with it today.

But meanwhile, I wanted to make this wreath I saw on Pinterest.
