Hey y’all…It’s amazing what difference a day of sunshine can make in my life. I feel happy, energetic and full of creativity! I am so glad the 3 weeks of dark and dreary are far behind us and that brighter days are definitely ahead!
I was so energized and creative yesterday that I made 3 Christmas wreaths, 2 sets of ornaments and worked on a Christmas sign! Whew…it felt good!
I am determined that this year I will not spend any extra money on my Christmas decor or gift wrap. Full disclosure…I have a lot of supplies on hand that I have collected over the years or purchased after Christmas last year. I also plan to reuse and repurpose items from Christmas’ past.
Like this woodland moss Christmas wreath that I made yesterday.
These are all leftover materials from past projects. I have had this grapevine wreath for years – I just remove the previous decor and added the new.
I love the earthiness of a natural grapevine wreath. You can still see the dried leaves on it.
I applied the moss with hot glue – I’m not gonna lie, I burned myself twice doing this. Thanks goodness for aloe!
I glued the white miniature bottlebrush trees from their base onto the vine.
I have lots of these miniature Christmas ornaments. I chose to use the shiny silver and the opaque white to add dimension to the wreath.
I toyed with the idea of adding this bow. I’m not sure if I will be using it or not.
What do you think…yea or nay?
I love how the wreath looks. Moss green is definitely my color scheme this year so this wreath fits the bill perfectly!
I am so excited for the upcoming weeks leading up to Christmas! I like to do a lot crafting and creating so I needed to start early in order to get everything done. I have lots more to share with you!
