So after finishing putting up all the Xmas decorations, I felt I needed a wreath for the front door..hmmmm. What to do? I no longer have a handy dandy neighbourhood thrift store anymore. So I made one.  Cheesy   I sat down and drew out some christmassy things and cut out some felt, a bit of hot glue (only burnt myself once w00t) and viola!
           
                       

     It's about 9"  across I needed it smallish as the window in my door slides open and it would look weird if it went over the split
All it is inside is a piece of cardboard I shored up with some packing tape and then I wrapped it with some lime green wool blend fabric that I just ripped so it would be frayed. I glued a ribbon up top and it hangs up with the aid of a magnetic clip. Embroidered some of the holly leaves. Had the thought of embroidering all of them, and said no, that would be  insane . Gave Santa and snowmen french knot eyes (I had no black seed beads)  My oldest helped cutting out some things some gluing yay ! So all in all it took about 2-3 hours Smiley I am pleased with it.

                         

Thanks for looking Smiley
