Burlap Christmas Wreaths with Magnolia Leaves and Berries

This one has a red ribbon offsetting the striped central ribbon.

This burlap wreath uses gold bay leaves to bring out the gold in the striped ribbon.

I've Been Having Fun!

All year I've been collecting materials for the new Holiday Wreaths.  I had ideas of how I'd be putting them together, but until I do, I never know what will work or what won't.  Last week I really struggled making my ideas come together, but after another trip to my wholesaler (like I really needed any new materials!), they started to come together.  Here are a few and in a couple of days I'll post some more. 

 I'll only be attending at two craft shows this year, Marist Holiday Traditions, on November 8, 2014 and Apple Annie's Arts and Craft Show on December 5-6, 2014. As always though, you can contact me directly about any wreath!

New Ideas For A New Year

I've been moving to create more natural wreaths in the past year and I am experimenting with different types of natural (or natural looking) wreaths.  Here are a few I have come up with.  Not to fear, there are plenty of burlap wreaths coming up for Christmas!
