A Summer Wreath

I have been looking for inspiration for a summer front door wreath and coming up empty.  Then I stumbled across this blog and found the inspiration I needed!  She even has a great tutorial for the rosettes.  My rosettes came out a bit loose but for the first try I'm happy with them.

Jeff even likes this wreath!  In fact, he told me I shouldn't put it on the front door as he is worried that it will fade in the sun.  So for now, it is residing in the living room.  I'm thinking of spraying some clear coat on it and taking a risk with the fading.  I know, I live on the edge.

Karla, it's fab! I love your colour and fabric choices too - and it's just PERFECT on that cool mirror that I remember well :) xo

Hooray! It's gorgeous! I took a tutorial (locally) making those and they are harder than they look, getting them the right tight- or looseness. Love them on the wreath! Maybe your online tutorial can give me some better hints!
