Holiday Wreaths

Under the Sea Wreath

Every year my Husband and I enjoy the beauty of the season and make fun crafts together! Over the years we have made elaborate Christmas cookies, Scented Candles, made from scratch Gingerbread House complete with sleds and hills, trees,snowmen and lots of icing and candy. 
For the last few years we have been making wreaths all with  different themes! We talk about ideas early on and and gather our own items we have stored away or frequent the local shops and garage sales, taking advantage of discounts. We also like to make some things from scratch!
Late October-early November we cut long lengths off our grape vine and form them into wreaths and then set them aside until late November, when we are ready to create our wreaths. After Thanksgiving we got to it and while we watched MANY Hallmark Christmas Movies(we love these) and listened to an occasional Christmas Song we created our newest wreaths! FUN and Great Quality time with my Honey!
