I love bright ornament wreaths for decorating for the Christmas season. But from personal experience, I know they can be a hassle to make. Fitting all those ornaments together can be like working a jigsaw puzzle, and these wreaths can require A LOT of ornaments to look full and colorful.
So I came up with a tutorial that creates an ornament wreath from a plain grapevine form that is easy to construct and needs a lot less ornaments. The resulting wreath is a festive and fun decoration for your holiday home. I have all the directions with photos on my Hubpages!
I really love how my finished wreath came out.
I also wanted to reuse the artificial pine wreaths that I usually hang on my front windows. So I found a way to decorate these smaller wreaths to match my larger ornament wreath. There are directions for decorating these pine wreaths on my Hubpages too! Enjoy!

I took a looong break from crafting and blogging over the summer, but the upcoming holiday season has reinvigorated me and inspired some new projects.
I bought this cute Santa wine bottle gift box a few years ago at an after Christmas sale. I loved the image on it, but didn't really have any plans for what to do with it. Then I realized that I could repurpose and show off this festive container by using it as a vessel for a holiday floral arrangement. In fact, you can use any medium or large size gift box to make a similar arrangement.

I've also come up with a fun holiday project to use the box lid. Check out my Hubpages for the full tutorial!
