A door prize was needed for our upcoming Christmas party at work!
I offered to make a wreath, but really didn’t have much of an idea at the time what I would do.
A few weekends ago I dug out all my wool felt and was working on these wool trees. I kept looking at the red and green pieces and started pulling some of them aside.
That’s just a random sunsetting shot I threw in here to confuse you! I had a wreath that I had salvaged from a pile at an auction, cleaned it up and sprayed it with a clear coat or two to freshen it up.
I used a llama scarf and various white wool sweaters to make the white flowers, added a big red rose and a bunch of free hand cut holly leaves.
I added wool roving balls to the holly leaves and tied on a vintage wool bow.
I think it might just work!
I am linking to these great parties!

I don't know what it is about this but I LOVE it...stunning! I love how it is simple but so elegant looking. Great job!
This looks really great! I used some of my parents clothes after they passed so I could remember them...which I do anyway...but the wreaths, like yours is to you, were very special to me.
Beautiful! I love your pictures too. They put me in the Christmas mood :)
