A crafty weekend... a contest tomorrow

I love it when my weekend ends on a crafty note.  After cleaning, washing, vacuuming and taking my mother places.. I got to 'make stuff'.
I saw this wreath on pinerest and KNEW I had to make it.
It really is rather easy.
*wrap a straw wreath
*cut out music circles
*sew a red seam around the edge
*glue the circles in a cone shape
*glue to wreath (about 3 rows)
*make felt flowers:
 -cut a circle-cut it around in a circle like the picture-start at the outside edge and roll it-glue it together on the bottom.
*glue flowers to the wreath-on the inside edge.
You can add little moss stuff to the inside edge of the wreath to hide the layers of paper.
AND there you have it:
a beautiful wreath.
Now tomorrow is my Birthday and I am thinking of having a BIG giveaway...are you in?
Here is a sneak peak:
