I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! I am showcasing how I used my favorite wreath this year. The Red Burlap Holly Ribbon wreath. I used it on top of my range hood and I love how the red really adds some holiday flair to my kitchen. Merry Christmas!

For every show I like to come up with a few new wreaths. I've had so many ideas on decorating the wreaths in the last months, and here are some of the ones I've finally gotten to. I know the black and burlap is not necessarily Christmas colors, but I think this one gets the Christmas greeting across. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions and I hope you enjoy them!
Silver Bells and Silver Ribbon help to decorate this black chevron burlap wreath for the season.
It's hard to tell from the picture, but the poinsettia print on this ribbon sparkles.

This week is my last craft show for the season at Apple Annie's Craft Show at St. Anne's in Roswell. The show will run this Friday, December 6 through Saturday , December 7.

I have been focusing so much on my burlap wreaths, I was surprised to see how popular the deco mesh wreaths were at this last craft show. I've been busy this week making sure I have plenty for my next 2 shows. Here's a few of them.
Love the Polka dots!!
This wreath may not look too special (pictures do not show the "wow" of the deco), but this wreath is lighted! I found this wonderful mini-lights to really make this wreath "wow" in the dark.

At my last craft show, a customer was talking to me about using cardinals in my wreaths. I already had the ribbon I wanted to use, but finding the snow covered pine twig really helped me to combine it with the cardinal. I love the contrast of the reds with the burlap!

I just found this ribbon last weekend and couldn't wait to use it with my red burlap wreath and twigs.
And just so you don't forget, I am still doing Deco! I have been focusing on the burlap wreaths, but I love the Deco mesh for the holidays. Check out a few of my wreaths for next week's craft show. Enjoy!

As I promised, here' another sneak peek of what I'll be offering at this month's craft show. All of my chevron wreaths have been so popular this year, so I decided to add a little chevron to the holiday season.
I added a large Jingle Bell and some rustic greenery.
Here's how it shows up on a door. Hope you like it!

This is a difficult time of year for me. I'm so excited about my new Holiday Wreaths and I want to share them, but I can't really sell them without depleting my inventory for the upcoming craft shows. So I decided to have a sneak peek each week and maybe I can get some feedback on how people like (or don't like) my new wreaths. Unfortunately I cannot sell these to the general public yet, but I may be able to after a few shows. Here's the first sneak peek.

I will be a vendor there this year and hope you can make it. I haven't been posting many of my wreaths lately as I am building my inventory for the upcoming craft shows. I will be posting some new holiday wreaths in the next few weeks that will be offered at the craft shows. Stay Tuned!
