My wreath is made and I love it!
It's very *Jenny* with the white polka dots on red fabric...
...plus a vintage button, crocheted flowers, and a sweet stitchery I did about three years ago that has been patiently waiting for it's moment to shine!
It only took me a couple of hours...
...to cut the fabric, wrap and glue it, gather some pretty red, white and aqua trims, and to turn the little stitchery into a circular mini quilt to hang in the centre.
I'm also thrilled that everything I used for my wreath came from my stash!
* red polka dot fabric is RJR's 'Crazy for Dots and Stripes' (2009)
* crocheted flowers are from The Haby Goddess HERE
* Christmas Dove stitchery design is a free one from Bird Brain Designs HERE.
I used little pearl headed pins to secure the crochet flowers around the wreath, and one of my treasured vintage buttons for the centre flower. The red ribbon used to hang the dove stitchery was once wrapped around a gift I was given, and the aqua spot binding around the stitchery was also waiting in my scrap box for a moment to shine.
I even used a fancy stitch on my sewing machine around the binding! (now that's something new for me)
I guess now that my playtime is over I'd best get back to work.
I only have two weeks to finish the next Elefantz Home e-zine.
Oops...how time flies when I'm having fun.
I love your wreath Jenny! It is very 'Jenny'... which means it's beautiful!

Oh Wow Jenny! That is prettiest wreath I have seen! LOVE IT!
It has you all over it! Perfectly sweet with lots of spotty goodness.
Mis felicitaciones , la corona ha quedado muy dulce y original.
Your wreath is just lovely. Perfect for your warm weather Christmas. I certainly know how you feel. Even though I'm in the Northern Hemisphere, Florida U.S, still has a warm Christmas. The really cold for us doesn't come till January. I could pick your wreath out of a line up and say it's you, but that's a good thing. You have your artist "brand". Love reading your blog and seeing your work.
It's beautiful!!! Very very nice :)
Oh Jenny! This is so wonderful and adorable, I have never made a wreath but I think I will try one of these as I have fallen in love with it. If it works out well, I am going to try to make one for every season. It is tooo sweet to hang up only at Christmas time. My sis in law went through her stash as sent me two boxes of Christmas/Winter fabrics to choose from, so I think I can easily make one from my stash. Including those for the other seasons!!! Thank you so much for your tutorial. Big Hugs sweet friend...
I love it.. Absolutely Jennyesque in design. Great choice. I knew whichever way you chose to go with the wreath it would look super.
how lovely! perfect for the holidays! thank you for sharing another wonderful project Jenny
what a great imagination you have to use such neat stuff from your stash. it is beautiful
Jenny, it just makes my heart happy to see your work and the colors that you use! Love it all!
Jenny, It is so pretty. I think it would be a pretty wreath in a childs room, in the colors used in the room.

Absolutely wonderful, Jenny! So you.
Your wreath is so sweet!
Wow, the wreath is so pretty. I just love to follow the transformation process, you have such a wonderful creative talent Jenny. Thank you for sharing it with us.
GORGEOUS! It's so very Jenny :) xx
Hi Jenny, The wreath is so nice and so fresh as a Christmas design. The little bird could carry a Happy Birthday sign in its mouth. there are many things that could be made with your design. You are very talented, Happy days ahead for you.
