Spring Fling Felt Wreath

So we're starting to get little glimpses of Spring around here. Some trees are starting to bud. We're starting to see more sun. In fact, last week I was able to wear a short sleeved shirt for the entire day! So since the weather has been slightly starting to turn, it inspired me to rummage around my craft stash and try to make something "Springish" for the house.
I had bought these wire/mesh butterflies awhile back for a project for my daughter's room. While I haven't completed the project, I did use one of the butterflies. As you can see, she is decorating a felt wreath that I made. I used a pearl head stick pin to attach her to the foam wreath base.
I had lots of scrap remnants of felt that were given to me. I picked out the lightest colors I could find, which ended up being pink, tan and white with gold polka dots. I pinked strips of them, about 6 inches long and then wrapped the wreath with them. I alternated the colors, but did a pattern of sorts. I didn't overlap them perfectly (as you can see) but I'm still happy with the overall result.
I had some ivory organza ribbon and some pink grosgrain ribbon, so I layered them "Nester" style and will hang the wreath that way. I like how the two ribbons look together, it's a bit more than just using one or the other.
Overall, think she turned out pretty cute. Used a foam wreath base from the Dollar store. Everything else I already had on hand, total grand cost was $1!! Yea for Spring....I'm ready for you (even though my allergies aren't).
