How to make an Easy Christmas Wreath

Christmas Wreath by Eclectic Handmade Creations

“Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favourite time of the year…”

The stores have had Christmas decorations out for months and the Christmas carols have been playing in the malls for weeks. It is all pointing to the tell tale sign that Christmas is just a few short weeks away! To be honest with you I couldn’t be happier, I LOVE Christmas!!! I just love spending time with family, feasting on all the yummy food and giving gifts to my loved ones. I love giving gifts to loved ones so much so, that I am usually already finished by the end of October and there is nothing left for me to do for weeks; fyi that is a bad thing, I like preparing for Christmas. Although, I do have a rule that in our house decorations don’t go up until the 1st of December. It is SO hard to wait until then, I am such a child. This year however, I broke that rule. I know, how naughty of me. Tisk, tisk, tisk! But, it was for a great reason! For the past few years, I have wanted to make a Christmas wreath. This year I finally got around to making one, thanks to you; well, I needed something for you to read. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. I literally stood at the door for at least a full 5 mins looking at it, just marvelling at how well it turned out! There was just no way that this masterpiece wasn’t going up as soon as it was finished!
