want to make list: christmas crafts

A nice long weekend with cooking, eating, shopping (Joanns was everything I was hoping for on Friday!), playing, and crafting! It is official...Christmas crafting has begun!

(she really was having fun, that is her concentration face)

Lills and I worked on this ornament ball wreath. The tutorial is great but I don't love our final product. I needed more ornaments, I only got half as many as the tutorial suggested (I didn't see that before I went to the store) but it was fun for Lills and I to do this together and we got all the ornaments from the dollar store which it made it cheap.

soooooooooo jealous you got to lap up the goodness in joanne's!
i'm curious what your base was for your wreath. i made a super sweet "ball of balls" and had some left over and wanted to do a wreath with the rest but styrofoam is KILLER on the wallet.
p.s. my word verification is: anticroc! hilarious.

I agree with Mel! I think the wreath is so cute!

I thought your wreath was brilliant.

Thanks for all those great links. I think my limited crochet skills could even accomplish the granny star and tree!

I love the wreath! It's 'wonky' which is my new favorite sewing term. Can't wait to see your stars and trees. I've got to make some quilted ball ornaments tonight, then I'm hoping to try out the crocheted trees. Can't wait!

I love the wreath! In fact, I want to try and make one. How did you the ribbon on the top of the hanger? And how did you secure it to your wall?

Pure Inspiration!!! Thank you so much. I have a three and a half year old who wants to do everything mommy does. The wreath will be an excellent project for her. We even picked up the ornaments tonight. Thanks again.

I love the crochet birdies! I usually make or buy ornaments every year for the women in my family. I think these birdies are it! I best get started. Thanks for the link.

ps I love both of your wreaths!
