My Newest Wreath ~ Red, White & Blue

I love making wreaths!  I have 8 or so I rotate and refresh throughout year. 

I hosted our El Paso de Robles Daughters of the American Revolution monthly meeting this month, so I grabbed my wreath and hung it up.  But, it needed major refreshing and refurbishing this year.  So once everyone left, down it came.  Here's the finished project!
A wreath is just a wreath is just a wreath UNLESS there is something unexpected like ~



And, how about a butterfly!!

What about a few bumble bees?  Oh yeah, at least a couple!

Oh my gosh!!  Look who I found hiding in my box of bugs and birds??  A hummingbird!!  OK  ~  almost complete  ~  In any Patriotic Wreath you just got to have  ~  The Eagle and a couple of Old Glory!
Thanks for taking a peak at my wreath!
I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed weekend!
