Birthday crown suggestions needed

ok got the lovely felt and started the process. It's an early fall birthday crown. K wanted a pink and green one so its pink on the outside and green on the inside.

nothing is sewn down yet, im still figuring out what to put on it and how to arrange everything. I know I want to keep the acorn in the center b/c she really wanted an acorn and I will embroider the letter 'K' on to the acorn for her name.

so I added some apple trees..do you like them? do you like the placement? then on one side i added a squirrel(can you tell thats a squirrel, even?) and the other side a pumpkin (keep in mind that i need to embroider details into everything.the stem on the pumpkin will be embroidered).do they look goofy? is it too much? what should i add between them and the acron? or should i center the trees on the sides of the crown (where its now empty) and put something else on the ends?
ughhh.
why does it look like a 5 year old made it or something? and not in a good way :lol:

woman, stop overthinking it! create, enjoy creating, and know that k will adore it, no matter what.

One thing to think about is that because you have the trees on the very ends of the crown, when it is joined to make a circle, the trees will be very close to one another. Perhaps you were thinking about a grove effect, which is fine, but if you were thinking that they would be spaced out on three sides of the crown, this will not look like that as it is currently pinned. Other than that, I know your child will love the crown!

Very fun crown! Love the bold colors. If you want to bring it all together try embroidering a meandering vine or pathway from trees to acorn. You could really go crazy with some curly qs! One way or another, it will be adored!
