First off I want to say thanks to my bloggie friends that had rubber stamp ideas. I have already completed several things. In addition to doing stamp art, I needed to revamp my outdoor decorations. I usually just put up a sleigh bell wreath with a ribbon for a very low-key, rustic look. This year I got out my box of goodies to dress the wreath up a bit.
I did a thorough house cleaning of all my stash, which included excess Christmas trims, earlier this year. I was actually surprised to find that I had saved a box that had a bunch of good stuff in it. All it takes is a pair of wire cutters, and a few other bits of fancy stuff to change a very rustic wreath into a bit of holiday glimmer.
It was quite windy and cold, but I got my wreath up with no problem. I don't do a lot of decorating, but I do like to do something for the porch and lights around the lamppost. Maybe next year I will go all out and do something really elaborate. In the meantime, this is my take on the traditional holiday wreath.
Take care and stay warm and cozy.
