My friend and I just started making fabric wreaths and I'm looking for a little feedback.
This is our first completed embellished wreath and it's targeted for an emo/scene kid.

If you like it, let me know. If you hate it, let me know what you hate. If you are indifferent then just say hi!


Thanks for the feedback, I made a few changes and want to see what you think.

I think you need to remove the white shoelace (I think that's what it is).
Use black shiny ribbon instead of that and add some black lace to it.

Maybe add some more emo/scene things to it.

Oh, I think it looks nice and it would be a nice gift, I should've said that to begin with!

(Hope you understand, since English isn't my language I find it hard to describe what I mean exactly and I don't always know the right word Undecided)

That's what I meant. The pink makes it more "soft", but I like it that way. If you want it to be more "rock" you'd better use the colours kirby_kurd suggested.
You're welcome, isn't this what Craftster is all about?

I like the wreath, but I think you've missed your target audience.  IMO, it's too cutesy to be considered 'scene' or 'emo' - it's something I would buy to hang in my toddler's room.

Perhaps adding more black fabric, lace, metal findings, zippers?, grommet tape, studs, etc would help.  Maybe reconsider your color scheme too - black and red/maroon, or black and purple might be more appropriate for the audience?

Just my opinion!

Thanks, guys!  Most of the wreaths we've done have been for kids/toddlers, so I was probably still in a baby mindset Cheesy  I'll replace the shoelace ribbon asap and try to add some more embellishments (plus photograph on a different background so you can see the pendant at the bottom)

I was afraid to make it too cluttered but after looking at it again, I think it's too bare.

I'm so glad that you left such great advice!
