I’m Rosemarie Welch, proud owner of Custom Wreaths by Rosemarie.
I’m a wife, mother, grandmother and now, a wreath maker! I was raised in Pittsburgh, PA and currently live in Rapid City, SD..
I’m proof that God works in a mysterious way. He has given me this talent that I really didn’t know I had. I give Him all the glory!
Discovering I had a talent for wreath making was a total surprise to me. Christmas 2014, I decided that I would like to make my own wreath for my front door. I did a lot of research and watched a lot of YouTube videos, and my first wreath was born.
I was hooked after that! My close friends and family thought that I should explore selling them. On a dare, I went to a boutique in town called the Silver Bee Boutique. I met with the owners and after seeing my creations, they gave me a spot in their store! That gave me an opportunity to grow as a wreath designer. Currently, I am only selling on my website and Etsy.
Designing a wreath involves education as well. I belong to a fantastic wreath community which allows me to learn from some of the top wreath designers out there. I take pride in that and it will reflect in the wreath I make for you! Part of education is keeping up with the trends in color and design and what is popular for each season!
Fast forward, I am still selling in the same local boutique and doing online sales through my business page on Facebook and now my website.
I totally give this to God as a gift. I love what I do, and hope my designs show the love that goes into each and every design I make.
