I made this wreath for my sister-in-law for Christmas. Her kids are super active in sports so I made a wreath in their school colors. There are a lot of flaws and I dislike the busy green and yellow alternating pattern, but its done! I have too many unfinished Christmas gift projects to go back and redo it. I think shell like it anyway.

endymion, you are so kind.  I was overly ambitious with handmade gifts this year.  Sometimes when I have a giant unfinished to do list I get overwhelmed and negative.    I really appreciate your encouragement.

I have a difficult time liking this because green and yellow were the school colors of my rival high school! Smiley  The flowers make me think "very hungry caterpillar" but maybe that's because I'm hungry. Anyway, I think it's a very thoughtful gift, and perfect for their school spirit. I'm sure they will cherish it.

I think it turned out okay!  Given that the colors were chosen specifically to represent their school colors, I'm sure they will love it Smiley

It's beautiful!  I love how clean and simple the design is, so that the same design could be used to highlight any set of colors, for various holidays or teams.  Well done.
