Autumn wreaths

I’ve been making these 10-11 in. wreaths for a year or so and finally made some for my favorite season.
I use draftboard for the base and weave through roving wool and yarn. Then I add medium cherry plywood leaves attached with more yarn or ribbon.
One question to the knitters and fiber artists out there - I would love to use (final pic) in more wreaths, but I have run out of this velvety tape yarn/ribbon. I appreciate any leads!
EDIT: I found the yarn on Ravelry! - moda dea ticker tape sunset colorway.

Your wreaths are lovely! Really like the veining of the designs.

Seems like I’ve seen yarn like that at Michaels. Did you try there?

Looks great. My wife use to make custom wreaths too.

Thank you! I have looked at a couple of different Michael’s locations.

Beautiful! Nice work! Is the wooden frame a plain disk or does it have holes to weave in?

I would also wander about Amazon and Etsy. Some might make a special case on Etsy
