Winter Wreath 2013

It’s Friday, woohoo! Break has officially begun and I’m headed to the mall to pick up some last minute gifts (wish me luck!).  But before I head out I had to come and share the last of my holiday crafts! I like to think I saved the best for last. In case you missed the title it’s my winter wreath! Last year I made my Snowman wreath which is out again this year.  My favorite thing about that wreath was that after the holidays were over I was still able to keep it up because he was more of a winter wreath than a Christmas one. I wanted to do the same thing this year.

My inspiration for this years wreath came from a post that Censtational Girl did. I had this idea to do felt snowflakes on my wreath and here is what I came up with!

Once I had all the snowflakes cut it was super easy to put together. The tough part was cutting out the snowflakes.  Well, it wasn’t so much tough as it was tedious. I used a white wool felt fabric and a snowflake that I printed and put on card stock that I used as a tracer. I cut a few out every night here and there while catching up on some shows.
