Yesterday I showed you my Chalkboard Valentine’s Day Wreath. Hands down it is my favorite wreath. But because I love making wreaths today I have two more to show you. One is a great holiday wreath full of berries that my sister, Julia, made and the other is a Home Sweet Home Wreath that Julia and I made for my grandmother.
First is my sister’s Berry Merry Holiday Wreath, which she made earlier this year for the christmas/ winter season.
I’ve always loved the red berries on any type of home decoration. But when she pared it with the crisp white poinsettias it became the perfect wreath for the holidays. It’s the perfect wreath to leave up all winter long yet still have plenty of holiday cheer. She must have gotten her wreath making skills from me. Just kidding, we both learned it from our mother.
This second wreath is one that we made together this past week for my grandmother’s new home. When I visited her on Sunday she still had her christmas wreath up that my mom and sister had made for her.
My grandparents have had a rough winter and needed a pick me up so Julia and I decided to make her a muted wreath together that would work for winter and into spring. So we made this one using sage green hydrangea that were actually on the christmas clearance aisle and some little bright colored flowers. We also mod podged a wooden plack with scrapbook paper and then used scrapbooking letters to add the words, Home Sweet Home. Hopefully it will help her adjust to her new home and remind her that soon my grandfather will be out of the rehab hospital from his broken leg and be back with her.
It’s a very traditional wreath in colors and a style that I think she will really enjoy more than a more modern wreath or a deco mesh wreath.
There’s something about me that just loves making wreaths and seeing the wreaths that people I love have come up with.
What’s one craft that you really enjoy?
