I mulled it over forever and then realized I needed an awesome gift for my sister-in-law's birthday. This was my big chance to make this wreath. Next problem: holiday, not holiday; it was a conundrum because I didn't want to make something that was cheesy or she wouldn't use. And then it struck me. She and her husband are HUGE NC State fans - they both graduated from there and are forever fans of the wolfpack. Thus, the NC State ribbon wreath was born.

|The finished product! GO WOLFPACK!|
Perhaps my favorite part is the hounds tooth pattern worked in... a nod to my true love of the SEC.
It turned out so cute, I decided my Grandmommie needed one for her new home! So, I invited my friend Clarissa over to make wreaths dedicated to our love of the SEC; she made a Tennessee wreath and I made a Florida Gator wreath.

|The finished product! How cute is that thing!?!? I believe we call that Gator Bait!|
|This is Clarissa's UT wreath. I love the unique look of the big loops!|
I kinda don't want to give it away now. And when my mom comes from Easter, I think I may be commissioning a second one. I think that my love of college football and crafts have created a huge monster made of ribbon! This could be a starting point for many fabulous sports... and holiday... wreaths!
