Creative Christmas Wreaths

Creative Christmas Wreaths

One of the best things about making wreaths for my gift shop is being able to hang them throughout our home this Christmas. I keep them on display so clients are able to see them as they might look in their own homes.

You can also hang wreaths throughout your home when you create your own using these ideas from BHG. I LOVE the wreath in the photo, using gift boxes in a variety of sizes to make a wreath. Such a colorful, cute & simple idea! Have fun! And craft on!

The Simple Joy of Advent Part 5

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, as the song says! However, Christmas can be very stressful. Our lives are already busy enough & then we have all the Holiday tasks & activities added on to our regular schedule. It can be overwhelming!

One way to slow things down each day at Christmas is by observing Advent. Advent begins the last Sunday in November & continues through Christmas Day. During Advent, families take time each day to prepare themselves for the coming of Christmas, the birth of Jesus. Each day, we take a moment to consider the impact Jesus’ birth has had on our lives. Families make Advent wreaths, light the candles of the wreath each day & share a Scripture verse.

In this series of classic programs, Jean Ann discusses Advent & shares more about the meaning. Jean Ann teaches you how to make an Advent wreath for your family. Finally, Jean Ann shares Advent lessons for the 4 weeks of Advent.
