August's addition to my Year of Wreaths series is all about ice cream!

This month's wreath was inspired by delicious ice cream, the trend for Instagram-friendly “unicorn food”, and the way we all share our holiday snaps on social media.

It captures that moment you buy a really delicious, slightly over-the-top ice cream, photograph it (maybe against a wall) and share it on Instagram or Facebook to a chorus of oooh!s and OMG!s and lots of likes and heart-eye emojis.

Making this wreath really made me smile, and I hope you guys will love it too!

The wreath features a large, colourful felt ice cream topped with sequin and bead “sprinkles”, a pair of heart-eye emojis, an “OMG!” speech bubble, and lots of felt hearts. If you don't fancy making a wreath, you could use these felt elements to decorate/make other things - the emojis would be very cute as brooches, and anything you stitched that ice cream to would be instantly fabulous.
