I created this cute little design for my sons girlfriend.  She collects Owl stuff.  This would be so cute to display for Valentines Day or give it as a gift for a wedding or shower!  It would also look cute as a center piece for a gift table!  The design fits on a 7" mini wreath or can be inlarged to fit a bigger wreath.  I have painted my son and his girlfriends initials on the tree bark but you can personalize it with your own sets of initials.  I will have the pattern packet ready for purchase on my webpage http://www.cgcrafts.com/ in a day or two.
