Scrappy Happy Wreath

I just got finished making this scrappy wreath for our baby girl Parker's door.  Even though she won't get to enjoy it for 21 more weeks, I want to go ahead and get her nursery as ready as I can while I have the energy.  Have I mentioned that the second trimester is SO much better than the first??

To start I used a vine wreath form that looked very similar to this, but it was from Dollar Tree.

I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a roll of fabric strips.
I love the colors in these swatches!!  And I have plenty left over to use for something else!

I cut 9" pieces from the strips and tied them around my wreath form.  At the bottom, I hot glued some felt flowers that I had made earlier this year for something else.  The colors really go well with this!

Finished product.  It didn't take as long as I thought it would.

Here it is hanging on Parker's door.  I put up some of the balloons from the when we found out she was a SHE :)
We've got a lot left to do to get ready for Parker, but I can't wait to meet her!
