College Basketball Wreath

I'm afraid it's almost that time of year again. You become a sleep deprived zombie, show up to work late, lose your voice from yelling and good friends become enemies. I'm talking about March Madness. I thought I should make it more obvious to my neighbors that I'm a Tarheel fan...
I made this wreath out of a metal coat hanger and several white plastic bags cut into strips. 

I painted the letters blue and used the end of a new pencil eraser to make the white  polka-dots. 
So which team alters your personality during March??

Hi Elyse...Glad that little bit helped. Your blog is really amazing and you have done things on your header and side bar that I do not know how to do. I have SO much to learn. I wish I knew how to put up the little linkie parties like you have. I think I do it the hard way because I don't know any other way. I'd like to put Facebook, etc. on but I don't know how to do that either. You have boxes around all your side bar stuff and I don't know how to do that. So you're WAY ahead of me girl. But I know you are much younger and are very computer savvy.

I do love your wreath. You made it with white plastic sacks which I have an abundance of. I actually think I could do this project. And I like the way you did the letters with the polka dots. Its all really nice. You are very creative and I know your blog is going to be great and do very well.

I'd love some advice on putting the linky parties at the bottom the way you do. If you get a chance to look at mine you'll see what I mean. How do you do yours? I'd love a mini lesson if you have a few minutes. Thanks Elyse.
