First Decoration!

So... since we've moved in, I've been trying to figure out how to decorate this house. Those that visited my Provo house know that I'm not a big decorator in the first place, but add to that the massive wall spaces I've got here, and well... let's just say the walls are still bare.
BUT.
I did make something for my front door over the last few days (as a reward to myself for working so hard to get our taxes taken care of). I gave you a sneak peak yesterday, and today I'm ready to show off the final project. A new wreath!




If you've hung out here on the blog long enough, you know that I have a slight obsession with felt. So when I saw these wreaths in a couple different places, I knew I had to try one. I fell in love with the cream colored one, but when I went to my felt stash, I realized I didn't have enough of it to make a whole wreath, so I started layering other colors. I love the way the browns blend (in real life that is, they look a little funny in the pics, sorry). I didn't really realize until I was nearly done though, just how fall-ish the wreath kind of is. So, I may be making another, more springy one. I just love the look of it. What do you think?

I love your new blog layout! So springy! I think if you added a pink or turquoise or springy green bow to this wreath it would solve the fallish problem in a quick hurry. Then you could change them out as the seasons suit you. It turned out so cute!

I love it. I think it compliments your door color quite nicely too. :) And yes, I think the bow thing would work. But why not make another? You have a hoard of felt and it's so pretty!

I really like it! I must say though, I think the colors you chose are totally appropriate for an all-season wreath. It's very neutral. I may have to copy it.

I'm not one for crafty things like this, but I have to say how much I like it, and how I am tempted to make one too! :-D

Love the colors, so cute! I've been wanting to make some felt flowers myself. Thanks for the links.

I also love the new pics of the girls on the side bar. :)
