I have always made Christmas wreaths, my mother showed me how and I so enjoy making wreaths, the smell of the trees just calming. But here all I have are long needle, pine trees, not good for wreaths, and I am not buying a tree just to make a wreath, so we are improvising. LOL. This year I made a yarn wreath, isn't it just too cute! I found a blog with the directions, this is not the blog but it does have directions. I did not use any type of ivy or vine on mine. Just styrofoam balls of different sized up to 2 inch diameter. Plastic colored Christmas balls, bells, a wire frame and hot glue. We are just loving it, and when you open the door you can hear the bells ringing, so festive!!
