Velcro Wreath for Every Season or Holiday

I don't decorate for every season because I hate having to store all the items for 11 months out of the year. However, I think I came up with a good solution for people like me...a simple wreath that is interchangeable for each holiday. Yes, there is still a little storage required, but no more than a shoebox size! 

Here are the supplies I used... 
The wreath and the ribbon came from the dollar store and then the rest came from Hobby Lobby. 

First, I made a bow out of the ribbon and added velcro to the top of the wreath. This will allow for me to change the bow for each holiday/season. 

Next, I painted the wooden piece with gray paint I had on hand and then hot glued it to the wreath since this is the only piece that will stay on year round. 

I then painted the letters "WELCOME" with white paint and attached them with glue to the gray piece. I placed more velcro at the bottom of the wreath to allow for decorations to be changed out. 
{I some how managed to miss taking a picture of this part}

Here is the finished Spring wreath. 
I'll try to remember to show you how my wreath changes for each holiday and/or season!
