Hello! Its the second week of December, which means its time for my second Christmassy post on this blog. I’m really excited for this one, so I hope you enjoy it!
Yesterday evening, I made a rather impromptu decision to join my Mum in making some Christmas wreaths (she makes good un’s, its a little intimidating). I remember making one last December, and to be very frank, it didn’t turn out very pretty. So, in hopes of my second try being much better, I snapped some photographs that captured the process of the wreath-making-evening. Here they are!
They may look slightly complicated to do, but there really isn’t much technique put into making one of these! A lot of the positioning of leaves and decorating is up to your preference and artistic eye – you decide what works best where. As long as the final product results in some semblance of a circular shape, has leaves/cinnamon sticks/other Christmassy things on it, and smells like the freshness of pine, you’re fineeee.
I think wreaths do an amazing job of getting any space ready for the Christmas season. We made a few of these in varying sizes, and put them around the house (mostly for our viewing pleasure). Here are some photos of just how cozy of a vibe these lil’ things create.
Yep, that was a quick sum-up of my Thursday evening. Definitely give making these a try, and leave a comment/email me if you’d like a tutorial type thing. Honestly though, I think figuring it out yourself just adds to the fun! 😛 Its a great activity to do with the family, or even by yourself with some good music on in the background. I’ll include a list of things you need to get started anyway. Hope you’ve enjoyed the second Christmassy post of the season!
