Wreaths don't have to be on a front door anymore! I'm going to make this one for a guest bedroom. I love to crochet, and I love to make flowers, so this is going to be a great project for me! I can use up bits of yarn I have to mix colors and textures. I know someone in my family is going to ask me to make one for them, too!
