Christmas Wreath

Needed something cute for our front door... something cute... and cheap would be even better. So I hit up Savers for a wreath that I could work with. Found a simple brown twig-ish wreath. Wrapped it with some pine-greenery. Made a smaller wreath to go in the center (using a wire hanger and scraps of fabric that I had). Tied some ornaments on (also found at Savers) and made a little wooden sign to add to it. 
I loved how it turned out. The only thing I'd do different / need to fix for next year - those darn ornaments kept falling off and breaking on the cold ground.

Stocking Holder

If I had the money I'd buy a cricket or something that could cut all the fun vinyl letters that I'm seeing everywhere these days... but I don't have that kind of money, so improvise I must do. Got this little piece of artwork at D.I. the other day (it had some kinda nursery rhyme and baby art on it)... Just needed some paint and some new wording and it'd be great to hang out stockings on over our fireplace...Merry Christmas!
