In the meantime, this little half-beauty below has been an on-again, off-again project since August. I'm still not perfectly happy with it, but I think it's at least close enough to call finished for the time being. I'm pretty confident there will be more tinkering with this one in the future. I have crimson ribbon I want to incorporate either as a hanger or a bow, and I fiddled some with that, but not enough to like it enough to keep it ... so this is still a work in progress. Hopefully I can take Mick's advice and decide what I like in time to sell a handful of wreaths like this for Football Season. (Strangely, I felt the urge to capitalize there.)
I've actually got two more wreaths in the works -- I'm on a wreath kick, apparently -- but after that I think I'll be done with wreaths for a while. Maybe.
