December!

Friday, December 3, 2010

Seriously, how did that happen? I can't believe it's the end of the year already, but I've been in holiday mode since about October, so I was so excited to finally get going on some holiday crafts. The first one that I had to tackle was this yarn and felt wreath. I discovered a very helpful tutorial for it on the take heart blog. As soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to make one. So pretty and so simple! I decided to go with burgundy, teal, and cream for my color palette. The yarn wrapping took a bit of time and a little bit of work to make sure everything was covered, but it was so worth it. The felt flowers were the most fun - I had to keep myself from making more! Here's my little beauty on my front door.
As for the inside of my place, I just set up my first Christmas tree the other day! Its a sweet little Fraser Fir. I have it decorated with a few felt circle garlands I made last year, some MINI ornaments I made a few years ago, and some sparkly starburst ornaments.
I snapped this shot on my iphone when the sky was blazing blue right after the sunset. I didn't have a topper in my meager ornament collection so I picked up this big, sparkly, bow at Target and it works perfectly! Check out this awesome trailer ornament:
That reminds me - I'd better start drafting up my plans for my this year's gingerbread house...
