Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This could also be made using an image of a bird or an animal instead of a letter. This has given me some ideas for my seniors group )

I have a wreath for every season. Sometimes I switch them out and make new. I love making wreaths they are so much fun and you can get very creative.

My aunt and her daughters make wreaths like this often. Getting supplies is easy and inexpensive, and they are relatively simple to put together. It is nice having the freedom to have whichever wreath you want, and for any occasion. The added personal touch makes them a nice gift too.

I make different wreaths every season every year. Cant hang the same wreath twice! When I am done with a wreath I pass it to one of my 2 daughters. Which ever one is here for it first! LOL

I only hang wreaths on my doors between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I don't hang wreaths on my door because they don't stay. And I'm not much of a decorator.

I always have a very colorful fall wreath made of multi color oak leaves. It is very bright an natural looking. For Christmas I like to have a natural pine and cedar bough wreath, embellished with cones and a big bow. I change the color and texture of the bow from year to year.

None - just for Christmas!

Some nice smelling bunch of fresh or dried lavender would be awesome with this wreath. I see a layer of lace over the burlap, but that part is not mentioned in the instructions. No biggie. The wooden letters are plentiful at the craft store, and come in several different letter styles and sizes, too.
