You know the icebreaker question, “if you could meet anyone, who would it be?”. I think I’d want to meet the person who invented “fun fur” yarn. This stuff is awesome, especially for a spring ladybug wreath. The Hair Bow Company sent along a few embellishments to help put the finishing touches on my ladybug wreath. How cute are those crocheted lady bugs?! If I had a little girl, I would throw a ladybug themed birthday party just so I could use them everywhere in my decor.

Materials
Wreath Form
2 Skeins of Fun Fur Green Yarn
5 Crocheted Ladybugs (via The Hair Bow Company)
White & Red Ribbon (via The Hair Bow Company)
Polka Dot Red & Black Fabric
Felt
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Directions
Step 1: Tie the end of the furry yarn to the wreath form and start wrapping it around the form. Continue wrapping until the entire wreath is covered. Tie the end of the yarn to the wreath.
Step 2: Trace a cup or circle stencils onto the red and black fabric. Cut out circles. You will need 12-16 fabric circles and 1 felt circle base per flower.
Step 3: To make a fabric flower, fold the circle in half and then fold in half again. Add a dab of hot glue to the point and attach to the felt circle base.
Step 4: Continue gluing fabric around the felt circle base, layering the fabric pieces. I glued 4 pieces to the felt base, layered 4 pieces on top and layered another 4 pieces on top of those. Make 2 more flowers, you can experiment with different sizes.
Step 5: Attach flowers to wreath using hot glue or double sided tape if you want them to be removable.
Step 6: Attach ladybugs to the left side of the wreath using hot glue or double sided tape if you want them to be removable.
Step 7: Hang wreath using white and red ribbon.
