New Home Holiday Wreath

Hi Friends!

I’m working to get into the habit of posting 2-3 times a week. Still doing well, working to get my steps back up to par this week, working on some creating & organizing.

Before we left for our trip, I was desperately looking for poinsettia flowers to finish this Housewarming gift for our oldest daughter’s new home.

She had asked me last season to create a new wreath for their home because their old one was looking a bit tired but it was a bit late to get started so I shopped the after season sales for this year. Then they moved & it became the perfect housewarming present. The problem was I had everything but the focal flowers & it was either too early in the season for the Christmas flowers to be out or they were the size of dinner plates when I found them. Their previous wreath had roses for the focal flower & I picked some up as my backup plan but I really wanted poinsettias. While on retreat we stopped at Ollies & low & behold they had the perfect size poinsettias, hallelujah.

I don’t do florals very often but I do like to play with them from time to time and bonus when it’s a gift.

So what other crafts do you like to dabble in besides your main hobby?

Over the years I have done just about everything related to crafts & sewing. The knowledge gained when you work in other mediums helps you keep a fresh perspective when creating.

Have a fabulous week!
