Feeling Crafty

I will be the first to tell you that I am not a crafty or creative person.

That was one trait that I certainly wasn't born with, and one that I don't typically work on improving.


A few weeks ago while reading some of my favorite blogs, and with the help of Pinterest... I caught a crafting bug.

So this afternoon, while in husbandless-house and with control of the remote control - I commenced some crafting.

I had purchased some festive, Christmas cotton fabric from Joann's and cut it into 6 in. strips of varying width and started wrapping them around my Styrofoam wreaths. 

After the wreaths were covered, I wrapped the wreaths with bright green ribbon.

Here's where my crafty and creative abilities were stretched.  

I used green pipecleaners and small red fuzzy balls (I'm sure there is some artsy-fartsy term for these... But I am clueless) to make holly leaves.  I glued them on the bottom of the wreaths.

Once dry, I tacky glued extra green ribbon onto the top so I can hang this masterpiece in our home.


My next trick will be creating an advent calendar.   But I'm guessing they won't turn out as good as Sar's or Meg's... But I can sure try!

Are you attempting any holiday crafts this year?

Take Luck,

  1. I'm pretty sure the "fancy name" for the red balls are just Pom Poms. Have you seen Shauna Kroeger's blog? She's crazy good and has a ton of DIY stuff.
