Marking off the Christmas list! {Wreath}

It's time to start making/buying Christmas gifts! I L.O.V.E. this time of year! Really! The best!! :) This year I have decided to make as much gifts as I can for friends and family that I will give to. Can you believe this is the first year I have tried this? Crazy, right? Well, I am loving it. I have completed my first item, and it looks like nothing that would be given around all of the wonderful colors for Christmas. BUT, it is for the next season that will be ahead. So, here it is!

It is a wreath.  I took step by step pictures, although I'm sure all of you could have figured it out just by looking at it! ;)

Wrap the pieces of fabric all the way around, hot gluing into place.

I made a small bunting with fabric and twine.  This is the back, showing how I just folded the fabric over the top of the twine and hot glued to keep it hanging.

Here is the finished product!  I really do love it, and I am kinda jealous of the person that is getting it.  LOL  I think it looks great on my door, don't you? ;)

What about you?  Are you making everything this holiday season?  Or buying?  Maybe both?  Whatever it is, good luck!!

I like to party over here!

Have a fantabulous day, friends!

  3. sorry... do you know of a tute to make those bows?

  4. That looks awesome, Christy! We haven't decided what we're doing for gifts this year, yet. But at the rate I'm going, if I start now, I'll have gifts for NEXT Christmas!

  5. I love it!! I love the fabrics you used and that bunting is adorable!! I'm with you - I'm making as many gifts as I can this year. It sure takes more time but it saves money, and I love the personal touch!

  6. This is adorable. Would love for you to show it off at my Christmas link party. It's new, every Monday and would be an excellent idea for anyone who stopped by.

    Hope to see you there!
