The rumor is true. I had a baby. And she’s absolutely perfect. I’d like to say I’m up all hours of the night, and I never sleep, which is why we haven’t posted in so long on the blog… but that would be a lie. She’s a good sleeper. Honestly, I’m too busy staring at her cute little face that I don’t have time to craft or cook. Literally, I just sit there and stare at her and hold her. It’s the absolute best.
But the other day I was getting sad that we hadn’t done anything to get in the Christmas spirit. We hadn’t gotten a tree, I hadn’t pulled out our decorations, I had hardly started shopping. So when I was at the farmer’s market last Saturday, and decided to buy a Douglas Fir wreath and turn it into something special. Here’s the final product:
I wanted to layer the Fir wreath on top of another wreath I had at home, to give it some depth. Here’s how I did it. I started with two wreaths, the Fir being slightly smaller:
I first tied the two wreaths together with a random piece of ribbon.
I decided to use this ribbon in the background, to add a little gold in the center void between the top and bottom. So when I tied the two wreaths together, I left one side very long, and brought it down to the bottom. I then tied it on the opposite side in the back as well.
Then I made a bow, of course. I tied another gold around the middle of the bow. I used this to attach it to the wreath.
The bow would go at the top. At the bottom, I wrapped the same color ribbon around the wreath, and help it together with a piece of tape. Here’s the tape:
