{Clemson Wreath Number Two}

Last year, I made a Clemson wreath for my front door.  I left it up until recently when there was a weird substance growing on it.  After I threw it away, I knew that I needed to make another wreath.  So I did!  
I started with a grapevine wreath, burlap, ribbon, and material.
I cut strips of burlap and wrapped it around the wreath.
I wrapped purple ribbon around the burlap.
Then I added different embellishments with fabric and felt, buttons, and glass gems.
I reused the banner from my old Clemson wreath.
I was worried at first that it looked too "grandma-ish."  But I think I like it a little better now.
It's definitely not the best wreath I've ever seen, but for a person who always struggles with finding the right "balance" with wreath embellishments, I think it will do.  :)


  1. Super cute! I don't think it's grandma'ish. I really like the color of your door too! :)

  2. I like it. Todd and I do not agree on any sports, so this wouldn't work. lol. I understand having a hard time with embellishments. I don't think this is granny at all. I have two yarn wrapped wreaths in my craft room that I'm stuck on. :)

  3. i love it! i especially like the fabric starburst thingies with the glass embellishment in the middle. great job bethany!

  4. Well I just love it. I really like the balance between sporty and girly. Great job!

  5. Hi Bethany! This is really cute, we have an ongoing battle which teams we cheer for, I think I would have to make three wreaths to make everyone happy. Have a wonderful week :)

  6. That's adorable. I think you struck the perfect balance. Go Tigers!!!
