Last wreath of the season

My entire mantel... notice my "Wise Men still Seek Him" (another blog find)

I wanted a fun way to display cards this year and I needed something to hang over my fireplace (awesome to have one in our new house- even if we don't have any wood), so I scoured the pages of the crafting blogs I belong to... I found two that I really liked this one from Clover Lane and this one from Craftiness is not Optional. I couldn't get the supplies for the first one, so I did the clothes pin wreath instead... actually, I was going to do BOTH, but I didn't have time to drive an hour to a craft store to get the supplies I would need... plus, we moved and we aren't getting as many cards this year... hmmm...

Here is my example of the clothes pin wreath. I don't like my bow.... something I have to work on, but overall I love the outcome. A bonus was that Jman got to practice some small motor skills while we were working on this wreath, because he strung the beads for me. :)


  1. LOVE it!! So cute. If you want to add it to my Flickr group, here's the link!

    Awesome job! :D

  2. Hey, I see our card up there!! And Kirstin's!! Cute idea! We get fewer and fewer cards every year, but we move about every two years, very hard to keep up with!
    Happy Holidays!!
