I've always wanted to make a wreath like this. It is very time consuming I must say but living in New York, you have a lot of time on the subways. I wrapped the cardboard wreath with white yarn while sitting on the G train for the past week. It took me about 2 days of train rides to wrap 2 layers of white yarn around the cardboard wreath.
I added glittered letters of our initials and a tiny little anchor in the middle of the center flower.
