Natalie's wreath is FINISHED!

I'm sure you all remember Natalie the lucky winner of THE FIRST GIVEAWAY!
This is her and her husband :] Aren't they so perfect for eachother? :]
(Not to mention her gorgeousness...)


She sent me a picture of a couple wreaths that she liked the look of and this was my favorite (ok...she just sent me 2 pictures of 2 different wreaths...but I LOVED this one!)

I was a little nervous to dive into this one and agree to it because I wasn't SURE how they put it together.  I took a wild guess and I think it turned out pretty good I think!  I was happy with how similar the final product turned out to be to the original.

TADA!

I felt like (and let's hope Natalie still does too!) the wreath needed a little more than just one burlap flower, so I put three of them on her wreath.

And, if you know me, you know that i'm a pearl kind of girl and I would choose pearls anyday over buttons...so take a wild guess what I replaced the button with...


PEARLS!


I love how the ruffles completely dress up the whole wreath!


So, what do you guys think?
Is this close enough to the wreath she found a picture of?
I hope so!

I'm so glad I was able to do this giveaway and i'm so glad that Natalie challenged me and made me step outside my comfort zone and guess how to make something like this!

Maybe someday, when she comes up to Idaho Falls, I'll be able to part with this wreath and stop pretending that it's mine :]
It's ok because when I do, I still have enough material to make a couple more!
THANK YOU NATALIE!
