I made this wreath at Christmastime, with the intention that it could stay up on this little blank wall for the rest of winter. (Maybe even spring!)Essentially, it is a yarn-wrapped wreath (plain mint green yarn and white pompom yarn) with a sweet little bird friend who appears to have raided my craft room for shiny and sparkly treasures.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!

I seem to be seeing a lot of yarn wrapped wreaths lately, and this is by far my favorite.

Thank you! It was so fun to make -- and definitely a good way to use up the little bits and pieces that I love but didn't have a real home. Grin

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

This is a great wreath for spring, too! I love the two yarns you used and the bird with all the vintage jewelry. This looks like those expensive wreaths on Etsy. Love it.
