After completing a yarn wreath for myself back in October and discovering how easy it was, I decided that I wanted to make one for my grandfather's wife for Christmas (It also didn't hurt that they had a BOGO on wreaths at Joann's). She enjoys crafting herself so I thought she would appreciate one, especially since I chose to make it Alabama themed. My grandfather and his wife are huge Bama fans so I think they will both be happy to have it.
Since Bama's colors are crimson and white, that's what I chose to wrap the wreath with. After wrapping for quite some time this is what I had:
Of course I had to add the iconic Alabama A to the wreath and I think I get bonus points because I made the A out of houndstooth felt! How Alabama is that? If you don't live in Alabama, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, but just trust me. =)
I also added these felt flowers that I made after reading a how Brittani made fabric flowers over at Birdie Branching Out.
It was really fun to make and I hope it's something my grandpa and his wife will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
