Pinque Peacock - Summer Challenge - Wedding Wreath

Today I am doing a Summer Challenge for the Pinque Peacock Challenge Blog.
I love love love Summer.
When I think of Summer I think of weddings..
A friend of mine, her niece is getting married and she is doing 
a lot of the decorations and  the thank you's and 
she also did all the invites. I helped her with ideas and 
I made this special wreath for the wedding. 
My friend helped as she made one of the burlap flowers and 
she held the glue gun when I was arranging the wreath.
( those are her words)

We got a lot of different burlap..
I also used tulle, and some lace from my stash.
The words are wooden (also from Mike's)
The tulle looks blue in the pictures but it is white.
I also wrapped twine around the side of the wreath.
Lori had a picture of what she wanted the wreath to look like.
(The wreath was a buck at the thrift store)
The burlap splendid swirls are from Pinque Peacock... I am in love with these..

The swirl is the bottom "flower"
The next flower is from Mike's (from the 1.50 bin)
and I added a burlap center.
I made the two white burlap flowers.. 
They don't look anything like the tutorial but I like them on here.
The next flower is the burlap flower I made...
it's so easy...tutorial here...
There is two burlap flowers on each side of that from Mike's.
The next flower is also a purchased flower.
The one closest to the top is the one my friend Lori made.
We were both so pleased when we made the flowers.
I added three bits of lace here and there.
The theme for the wedding is country so this wreath
will be perfect for the wedding.
Here are two close ups of the wreath.

I challenge you ... I want to see your Summer projects!
