I actually had no idea that such a pretty wreath could be made with cardboard instead of those stupid craft foam wreath forms!  It actually seems to fit against a wall (or door Tongue ) much better.  That is beautiful, I love it!

Thanks so much everyone!

I used Simply Soft for it, figured it could stand up to a 4 yr old. Tongue

Thanks!

It really was soo easy to make. 

Basically I just made a chain long enough to fit around her chest, with a little breathing room.. (thats where i probably messed up, as SC isn't as stretchy as I thought it would be.. lol.)  Join it, and just sc around and make a tube as long as you want it in sc's.  Would probably be stretchier and lighter in half doubles or something. 

Then, when I got to the end of the "tube" I just did a (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in every other stitch, then join and keep doing that around, working each row in the ch2 spaces.  Putting the shells so close together is what kinda makes it flare out and ripple a bit when it gets longer.

Then, just change colors on the last 3 rows, surface crochet the stripes on, attach whatever flower you want, and braid up some straps, and voila, thats it!

I started making one where i just made a rectangle to fit around her, instead of the tube, and used ribbon as sort of a corset closure, so its adjustable and more comfy, so that would probably work too. Tongue

Hope that made sense!
