One of my favorite things to do at this time of year is to GIVE. I love to shower those I adore with gifts. Even more special are the gifts that I am able to create with my own hands. And so, I've begun my craftin'.
One project I have enjoyed doing for the past few years has been to create Christmas decor (wreaths, centerpieces, garlands, etc.). Here are a couple of wreaths I'm currently working on...
|A work in progress|
A great part of this project is that it is usually EXTREMELY reasonable as far as costs go...especially if you plan ahead (I usually shop after-Christmas sales for all the wreaths and adornments as well as thrift stores at the beginning of the season).
I also decided that our wreath needed MAJOR love (it was just a few Christmas balls and a big red bow before). I gave her a facelift, and I think she sparkles a little more now. ;-)
More fun to come!
