Merry Christmas

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6

Amid the gifts, trees, food, and lights, let's remember the real reason for Christmas.
Jesus Christ the Saviour was born.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Merry Christmas!

DIY Christmas Wreath

Whoops. It's been way too long since I've posted anything! With Thanksgiving and Christmas, I've hardly had time for any crafts! 
I'm afraid this tutorial is going to be more word-y than picture-y, since I just sat down and made it without taking ANY pictures whatsoever. It is very easy though.
You will need: 
ribbon (mine was sorta burlap-y, but decorative; Walmart)
3 sprigs of decorative pine floral decorations (Walmart)
2 sparkly ornaments (bells and that spiky thing; Walmart)
Snowshoe ornament and bells with bow (Meijer)
wreath form
Wrap the ribbon around the wreath form. Don't wrap it too close together or you will end up with not enough ribbon. When you reach the beginning, pin in place with regular sewing pins. Next, pin on your bells. Mine have a bow attached, along with a little twine hanger. I pinned it on in several places so it can be hung by that piece of twine. Next, insert the decorative florals into the gaps between the ribbon. It's a little bit tricky, but you can do it! Then, pin on your sparkly ornaments and your snowshoes, and you're done! It's very simple, but I like it. And of course, you can do as many or as few ornaments on it as you want.
I will be posting regularly again, I promise!! I apologize for the delays.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!
