Spring Wreath

Wow! Ever since I saw this wreath from Dana at Made and this one from All Things Thrifty, I've been obsessed with wanting a wreath.  Well I so excited when we moved to our place and the dirt mound yard was covered with acorns, I had my little Halster help me gather them and set off gluing my gathered acorns for hours.  

Either my hot glue gun sucks, or I suck at hot gluing because there were pesky strings EVERYWHERE! I thought spray painting it pink might help hide the strings, nope I was wrong.  It looked like pepto-bismol.  It was awful!

Seriously.  I'm not exaggerating.
  
So I gave up and threw it in the trash where it belonged.

Now I'm glad I did, because here's what I came up with.  I'm not overly excited about the fabric choice for the flower trio, but I wanted to use what I had- so it works. And it still brings a smile to my face. :) And best part, it was completed during naps with plenty of time to spare... yea for having time to eat! Enjoy.

Love this! Can you explain how you made your little flowers, and how you attached those and the letter to your wreath?
