Once the wreath is hung on your front door you know that the Christmas season is officially upon us! As a child growing up, December 1st was the magical day that we were finally allowed to listen to Christmas music. I was one of 7 children and it was a big day full of music, baking cookies, drinking hot chocolate, hanging lights, and decorating. My mother was determined to celebrate fall and Thanksgiving fully before we moved onto Christmas. And believe me, we felt sincere guilt if we strayed from that before December 1st!
As an adult, I have allowed myself the guilty joy of listening to Christmas music pretty much whenever I want which usually starts sometime in October. Haha! But I do wait till after Thanksgiving to pull out the Christmas decorations but don’t necessarily wait till December.
Today I’m sharing a couple of wreath tutorials. For me, it doubles my satisfaction when I make something myself.
You can embellish it anyway you want. I’m adding a simple red bow to mine. Tada! Christmas perfection.
If you have access to real greenery count yourself extra blessed and make this beautiful traditional wreath.
This coffee filter wreath is absolutely beautiful and it’s next on my list to make! And it couldn’t be simpler to make. You can find the tutorial here.
This ribbon candy wreath totally got my attention! Ribbon candy was a special treat when I was a kid and I always like to buy some at Christmastime for my kids.
Merry Christmas my friends!!! Go hang a wreath on your front door and if you’re feeling crafty, check out these tutorials and make the wreath yourself.
