My baby boy is turning 3 this weekend, I cannot believe it has been 3 years since he was born. Although, him being a tiny baby seems like a lifetime ago!
Now that Christmas is over I don't have a wreath on the door anymore, and since Cart's birthday is right after Christmas it gave me the idea of a Birthday Wreath! I thought it would be fun to have something bright and colorful to put out when ever it is one of our birthdays.
I LOVE this wreath, I really do. I love the bright colors, it just makes me want to smile!
The asymmetry was inspired by the Christmas Wreath I made a few weeks ago, I really like the one sided look. So with that I knew I wanted to use felt. It's so easy to work with and looks so soft and cozy.
I wrapped a wreath with white yarn, then cut out a bunch of circles. This was another one of those things I did while zoning out to one of "my shows". lol
I folded them in half and in half again to make the ruffly look. Then glued them on with hot glue.
I used the larger circles to map out where I wanted what color.
It took quite a bit of time to glue all the little circles on. But it was worth it!! :)
Bright and cheery! Definitely taking those Winter blues away!
I didn't actually glue the bunting banner on, so I can change it out to different occasions if I want. By the way, I'm addicted to making wreaths, yea, I'll admit it. HA!
Here is another version, many different ways to use the same wreath!
