Christmas Wreath

My mom, sister, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and myself usually attend a cute little wreath workshop at one of our local farms. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. This year, however, I just couldn't justify the expense when I knew it would be cheaper to get the wreath and supplies myself. So I tried my best to recreate a cozy warm holiday vibe in my little craft area and my mom and sister came over to create wreathes. After getting the wreath itself at the local farm, a quick trip to Michaels for the embellishments and ribbon was all that was needed. I decided to go for a blue and silver theme this year as the wreath stays on the front door until I take out the Valentine's Day decor. All in all I'm pleased with the way it came out.

Cheers,

Hi Karla,

I love your blue and silver wreath. It came out beautiful!! I am sure that you had just as good a time at your place making these wreaths as if you were out. Pinching pennies is the name of the game, today! Good for you. Enjoy.

Your wreath is beautiful Karla. You know what I did? Usually I buy a beautiful boxwood wreath made by the ladies at the church...expensive but it's for mission work. But this year I happened to be at Walmart when the wreath and Christmas tree truck was unloading. The wreaths were very pretty and Very inexpensive. I bought two and put them together to make one big fat wreath....lol. Mine stays up until after Valentine's day too.
