My Crafty Christmas gifts

It's nothing like all the beautiful pics from LMPGs but I have been busy crafting away on gifts for DHs family and I like them
I love decorating wreaths and have done 6 so far this year - 5 for the inlaws and one for my Aunt as a hostess gift

The inlaws wreaths


and my Aunts


Close ups of the reds

Melei's mom,,,those are gorgeous, i love the red and white one. I totally agree with Rainbow they are nicer than the ones i've seen in the stores, and the fact they are hand made should make them all the more speciall to the in-laws.

Melei'sMom, those are beautiful!!!
Seriously you should do up hundreds of those thru out the year and sell them at Christmas craft sales! Or sell them online or something.
Mine is store bought, and doesn't compare to yours.
I would be willing to send ya some money to make me one for next Christmas...something to think about.
Beautiful work
I love the one with the dove, let me know if you ever decide to take orders, I'll order two of those.

Thank you They do appreiciate them...the only reason I am willing to do so many. lol. I haven't made any of them wreaths for a few years and they wanted new ones. My MIL has a collection of 4 (to be 5) and said she needed one for the kitchen window...all the others have their place and the window was to bare apparently lol

100s?!? that would be something! unfortunaley I have to work too lol. about orders...um, I only have one more dove. I like to hit garage sales, auctions and secondhand stores to find unique things to put on the wreaths, so I wouldn't even know where to begin to find another dove. the pair I have came from a pallet lot of Christmas stuff I picked up from an estate auction. (and I just can't see myself pulling that one off my Aunts wreath lol)

I wouldn't even know what to charge for them....the flowers are usually new and the ribbon too(but not always), but the stuff that makes it uniqie is usually used/recycled.

I guess orders could be placed for size and color scheme, but for specific wreaths...they are all one of a kind and I like it that way...not sure I would want to do the 'mass production' thing...

Those are beautiful wreaths Melei'sMom. Did you make the bows too?

I wish I knew how to make bows but I'm all butterfingers when it comes to twisting and tying.

yes I do make my own bows. it is actually really easy if you know how, I don't tie anything, they are wired together. I can gaurentee I can teach anyone how to make bows the way I do them.
