newlywed wreath

Need a creative idea for a wedding or wedding shower present? Over the registries? Skeptical of online shopping? ..I came up with a simple, personalized gift that any newlywed couple surely would love. I am dubbing it the "newlywed wreath" because of the colors: white- associated with brides and a clean start, tan- to accent, and green- symbolizing new growth in a new life together. Any color palette can be substituted for creating a seasonal wreath. 

Materials needed
grapevine wreath
artificial flowers or decorative elements
wooden initial
(extra: add ribbon to hang)

I arranged the flowers and rolled strips of felt and hot-glued them to the wreath in tiny areas. I painted the wooden initial to match the white felt and hot-glued it also. I had seen the rolled felt strip idea on Pinterest, but I made my own design especially for the newlywed couple, Amy and Mitch. It was a simple project that will bring some character to their new door!

*New song added to the "listen here" widget: Save the Last Dance for Me by Michael Bublé. Reminds me of The Wedding Date with Debra Messing. LOVE it. What's your favorite wedding movie, bloggers?
