A Patriotic Wreath

I had a foam wreath form left over from my Easter Peeps wreath that was just crying out to be used creatively. Now I must say that I am not as in love with this wreath as I was with my Peeps wreath, but it is growing on me. I found my inspiration HERE as a Halloween wreath. Here is how my red, white, and blue version turned out:

I ended up using satin ribbon, but if I were to do it over again, I would stick with the grosgrain ribbon like the original inspiration wreath. And I think the ribbon strips are a little long...I would probably trim a few inches off. But it does add a patriotic touch to the front door:

What do you think?
Does it work or is it a little too much?

Happy 4th of July!
