Making Christmas wreaths

Each year, some of us ladies from my church gather greens and make our own Christmas wreaths. One of the guys from our church has a huge lot he owns next door to his home and it has many pine and cedar trees. He lets us trim trees for our project. We haul the greens back to church and then get busy wiring the cut pieces to a round wire frame. Sometimes we just add a bow and sometimes we put on ornaments or pine cones or holly, etc.

This time, I got a friend to make the bow for the one I gave away
but I couldn't get my snowflake ribbon to work and gave up on using it this time. I finally made a simple red velvet bow and added small ornaments. It looks okay and I am glad to have something for my apartment door since it is inside the building.

I think that is a wonderful thing that you ladies are doing. I bet those wreaths smell good, too. I like the one you put up on our door. What a welcome it sends out to everyone who comes by!

Sounds like a great project for the ladies and one that I'm sure you enjoy. The Wreaths look beautiful.

I admire your skill! I am not able to do these things even though I have tried, so I especially appreciate your achievements. These are great.

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
