New Wreath

I hadn't realized before how much I love wreaths & door hangings. I have recently started a new obsession. Blog surfing - be warned - craft blogs are addicting and WONDERFUL.
That is what has inspired me to start using my blog. 

So, I saw this amazing wreath at Jones Design Company - this blog is amazing! So many great, great ideas. I digress. So I had to try. Here is what I made:
The tutorial is here. I know you want to make one - how could you not!
I will give my few (very few) suggestions on what I will change next time.
First - I've never worked with burlap before - it is messy! I would lay something down before I start to cut.
Second - I would use a 4" strip for the back ruffle and a 3" strip for the front ruffle. I like to see the back a bit more and ended up trimming mine. 

The tutorial really is wonderful and I LOVE the end result.
My door looks so pretty.

Here is a close up of the flowers. The best part is they are all pinned on so I can change them out for the different seasons. Love it!

Need some more ideas? I am already planning on my next wreath. Here are a few I have been inspired by:

This is where I got the idea for the removable flowers. Genius!
