I've seen team-inspired wreaths on Pinterest and Etsy. They are cute, but can be VERY pricey. Hello, Etsy shop owners? I am not going to drop $80 for a door decoration. I made mine for a total of about $8.30. That's more like it. I'd rather spend the rest of my hypothetical $80 here or here.

This tutorial is super easy. I made it the other night during a severe bout of pregnancy-induced insomnia, partially brought on because Netflix has added the most recent season of Parks and Rec. My tutorial pictures are HORRIBLE because lighting in my apartment at night is not bright at night (energy saving bulbs, FTW!... according to my husband). But hopefully you can get the gist of how to make the flowers, which are easy, but require the most time.

Firstly, I suppose you need to pick what team you want to represent on your wreath. BYU was a no-brainer: this is rivalry week. The Holy War. We, on the right side, must make the line of our loyalties shine bright and clear (especially when you live in Ute territory). I went to Hobby Lobby and got scrap fabric (the cotton for the flowers + the tulle) for a total of about $4.00. The fabric for the blue flowers ended up, to my horror, of being a giant picture of a snowman in a snowstorm. But there was enough blue around the green trees and snowman to make the blue flowers. Which was nice, because that whole yard of fabric was only a $1!

So get your fabric and trace circles. I did two sizes- the bigger flowers are the size of my cereal bowls. The smaller ones were the size of one of Isla's toy rings. I made 8 big flowers and 8 little flowers.





These are SO EASY. Cut out the circle. Stitch around the edge. And pull the thread through until you have a flower. You might need to adjust how the circle lays before you put a few stitches in the middle to hold it in place. Repeat this until you have as many flowers as you want. And that's IT. SO. EASY. I whipped out 16 flowers in about two episodes of Parks and Rec.




I used a glue gun to put it all together. I glued about 3-4 flowers at a time, and then glued it to the wreath. Arrange it anyway you want.

The letters are from Hobby Lobby and were about $1.40 a piece, which I painted white. I had buttons and pearls that are just glued on (pearls from Isla pulling and breaking some necklaces) and the wreath already (which was only $3 from Walmart). So I just spent money on the fabric and letters.



I wrapped tulle around the wreath so the letters would stick better. Extra tulle went to the bow at top.



And there you go. Easy-to-make flowers + wooden letters= a cute team wreath for the Fall.

Pregnancy update coming tomorrow! I will officially debut my "baby bump" at 22 weeks.
