created at: 11/16/2010

I love this wreath for two reasons.  One, it’s pretty dang cute.  Two, it’s seasonal without being Holiday-specific so you get more bang for your buck.  I’ll even throw in a third BONUS reason: it’s a great jumping off point if you do want to make it holiday specific.  It’s all about the accessories, baby.  Oh, and your color choices.
