Finish It Up Friday :: Day Of The Dead Wreath

A bit of a different finish this week but I thought it was a fun one! I made this wreath for my DOTD loving sister who had a birthday recently and I loved how it turned out.
After scouring etsy and not finding what I wanted I decided to make it - being crafty totally pays off sometimes. I embroidered the sugar skull face after looking at many sugar skull images online (love google images for this type research) and then used traditional DOTD colors for the felt flowers surrounding the skull. I'm happy to report that my sister loved it :-)
The other fun part? I'm going to be teaching this wreath as a class at Fabricate Atlanta in October. If you're local I'd love to see you there. Find all the details and registration info on Fabricate Atlanta's website. Of course now I need to make another one for myself and then maybe one for Thanksgiving too! Hope everyone here in the States has a good Labor Day Weekend - see you back here next week for more quilty fun!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday.
