A Christmas Wreath

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Today I’m sharing a simple Christmas wreath I made they other day and today I begin decorating our house for the holidays. I have a rule, and although I’ve been tempted to break it, I can’t decorate until at least Thanksgiving Day. So today is the day and and tomorrow we are getting our Christmas tree. I love the way a home smells during the holidays when the Christmas tree is up, the yummy candles are burning, and holiday goodies are baking. It truly is my favorite time of year.

For the Christmas wreath I made, I knew I wanted something simple yet full of holiday cheer. I used left over fabric I had from a pillow I made awhile back and added a few extras I picked up from Micheal’s.

It’s so simple, wrapping the fabric around a a Styrofoam wreath and using a hot glue gun to adhere it.

I love  the rustic aspect of the red striped fabric with the charm of the golden berries, pine cones, the green twigs.

Finish it off with a simple red ribbon to hang it and soon it will brighten up our front door.

I can’t wait to see how our home comes together as I decorate and all of yours as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
