Simple Summer Wreath

I’m most definitely no wreath expert, but I play one online.    I made a yarn wreath for the holidays and liked it so when spring came around, I thought, hey why not make one for the summer too.  So I picked out my favorite flower, the simple yellow daisy, and yarn to match and got to work.  It’s really a very simple wreath, as I [...]
