Tonight I’m finally gonna get to decorating a little bit for the House of Prayer. I love the wreaths I made.. and the little tree I came up with!! Hope that everyone likes it all! I have some garland that I’m going to also use there… just gonna go with the flow on that… so no pictures of that. Just these:
I was given a lot of things to help me to decorate for Christmas… so I decided to make a wreath with just some of the things I was given. I sat in my floor thinking… I’m just gonne be fun and tacky… Just gonna sit here and put things in this wreath and go with it… So I DID! and yes.. I love it! My favortie part about this wreath are the branches. But most of all… it’s full of fun! I just had to keep it how it was. So I did… 🙂
This wreath was inspired by the poinsettias that my Grandmother left behind in her house. (Yes, she is still alive- but lving in an assisted living home.) I gathered some of her stuff that she wasn’t able to take with her and kept some of it, but I made this with her favorite flower of Christmas.
My sister came to me and asked me to make a wreath for her mother in law; and of course it’s a Coca Cola wreath!! We thought it would be hard to find Coca Cola things… but it wasn’t. We stopped at Hobby Lobby and found a few ornaments. Then one night as I was out to eat at Cracker Barrell we found some others. I then thought it would be great to get a Coca Cola sign to go in the middle of the wreath- but where oh where would we find one of those!!?? I had thought about maybe looking online- and then we remembered the little Coca Cola Pharmacy in town. For the 27 years that I’ve lived in this town- I have never been to this little store until a few weeks ago where we found the sign. I thought it was great!
I’ve been a little busy here and there… but not too busy to get my creative juices flowing!
I went to my in-laws this past weekend and my (step) Mother-in-Law gave me some materials to make a wreath with. She had made this cute little wreath out of some of these materials for her house (which her house is immaculately decorated and amazing!) and decided to share her creativity with me. This is her wreath. She sent me a picture of it to go by…
And So I creatively created this: from a few of my own materials and some that she gave me as well. This is gonna be part of my fall decor- and pretty much my first fall decor piece that I own! I have yet to start getting fall stuff and this is where I’m starting…
My mom loves to decorate. She is always asking my opinion and my husbands opinion. We are the crafty ones of the family. 🙂
My mom had this wreath that someone made her a long time ago… it was not very pretty. So she gave me the wreath, and a lot of fall things to put on it… needless to say- I didn’t think that I was going to get anything out of these things… so I brainstormed… and I took everything apart. Even the leaves were on a vine… I cut them up. I stripped everything away…and made it new! (kinda like what God does- hehe!) So anyways… I made this… I think it’s lovely! And I’m in love with it soo much!
