The cutest ugliest wreath

Today is my mother-in-law Debbie's birthday! Happy Birthday Debbie!
For her present, I decided to attempt to make a wreath I found on Pinterest. If you haven't heard of Pinterest, you NEED to go check it out. There are tons and tons of cute ideas for the home, do it yourself projects, recipes, fashion, and more.  I found this super cute wreath as an Auburn one, but I decided to make it a Bama one for Debbie for her birthday since she is a Bama fan. I think it turned out pretty cute. Other than the fact that it was a Bama wreath.

Here's what I used:
-one wire coat hanger
-3-1 yard cutouts of fabric (3 different fabrics)-I honestly could have used half as much fabric as I had leftovers
-a wooden letter I got at Michaels
-red paint

Step 1: Curve coat hanger into circle. I used wire cutters to bend it well and to make the clasp to close it.

Step 2: Cut out strips of each fabric. I did 1 inch by 7 inches. 
 Step 4: Simply tie the fabric around the wire hanger. Vary the different fabric when you tie it. Put the knots as close together as you can. When you are finished fluff it out.  I tied another long strip of fabric as the holder.
 Step 5: I bought a white letter "C" from Michaels and painted red polka dots on it. I had Matt drill 2 small holes on the top and bottom and used the fabric to tie it to the top and bottom of the wreath. 

Now I am going to make an Auburn one for us!

Hope Debbie likes it (I think she did) and has a great birthday!
