Christmas Wreaths

Good Sunday morning! Well, after visiting two of my regular blogs this week, I decided it was high time I took that artificial wreath off my door, go out back and cut some branches, and make myself a real wreath! I always used to either buy a real one, or make one, but have gotten lazy these past few years. Go HERE and HERE for the blogs responsible! My friend Peg came over yesterday, with her wreath frame, and we took TWO HOURS to make two wreaths. I am very out of practice! They are HUGE, as we used 18" frames. Thanks to both Tanya and Judy for great tutorials and tips on how to do this. It really helped refresh my memory! It was a nice time, we got to visit, and worked while we did. The first wreath is mine, with it's aqua/white/blue bow and sprayed white pinecones. The second one is Peggy's with a sparkley red bow, pine cones, and berries! They turned out awesome! What a deal, just 3 bucks for the frame, and a bit of labor and here we have a great huge wreath that would have cost a small fortune! We also got together to make some more of those snowman head ornaments out of the model magic. We had a great afternoon of crafting and visiting. Thanks for coming, Peggy! Well, I am hoping to get the last of the decorating done today, then I will be in clean up mode. I have been very productive these last few days, and don't want to lose my ambition! Have a great day!

Hello! Your wreath looks awesome....and perfect!!! Not to sound stupid, but you know me, where do you get the wreath frames from? I use metal clothes hangers and stretch them out to be circles. I would love to make a larger wreath for the front of the house, but don't have a frame! I can't believe how easy they are to make. When we were down getting our tree the farm there makes and sells wreaths and kissing balls. They were like $39.99 starting and went up from there!!! Love your work!

Just beautiful! I went to Salvation Army today to get one for my barn, so how cheap and lazy am I? LOL. Yours are soooo special.
I wish i knew how to make my own. It would be so neat!
