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?
