tea bag wreath

Went to the workshop yesterday to learn how to make a tea  bag  wreath  .  Oh, it was a blast.  It takes so little material.  Pretty much you're working with your stash.  

You need:
coordinated pattern paper 12 x 12 sheets
foam core board   for  wreath template   (wreath will be about 10" in diameter)
wooden clip clothespins.  about 20
ribbon  18" at the most
brads to coordinate with your ribbon for hanging ()this is a light weight project) 
tea bags of your choice  ( I picked teas that I liked with coordinating colors ) 

I don' t have step by step directions yet.  I'm making another one for next week.  I'll take pictures as I go.  The pictures today are the finished tea bag wreath hanging in our breakfast nook.

 Since you all know photography is not my strong suit , I posted several for you to see the wreath better.  

Let me know how you like it.   Would love some feedback.
