So I’ve got a nice manageable list of Christmas Crafts going to help us celebrate the First Annual Comfy, Cozy Moser Family Christmas in style. To my mind, this is where Pinterest thrives! I’m really looking forward to spending time crafting and using those crafts to make our home more comfy, more cozy, and more Christmasy! Want a sneak peak? You can check out my Pinterest board to see what I’ve got in mind this year!
The first craft I want to show off is our wreath, inspired by this post, over at The Paper Mama.
I have lots of burlap left over from the wedding, but it’s already been cut into pieces so I’m trying to find creative, but smaller projects to use it up on. This wreath was a perfect fit. I followed the tutorial pretty closely, but used a few different materials.
Supplies. This was an delightfully inexpensive project. I picked up a couple straw wreaths at Walmart this fall and had no plans for my second one. Using it for this was a no brainer. I picked up my ribbon and berry embellishments at Hobby Lobby last weekend.
The tutorial used a really wide burlap ribbon, but I just cut mine into strips.
Like the tutorial, I didn’t even bother removing the plastic wrap from my wreath. Just started wrapping and gluing my burlap.
I didn’t feel like getting another style of ribbon so I used the plaid to wrap around the wreath. A dab of glue was all I needed.
Hot gluing the fancys. I put mine in a spot where the burlap looked funny.
I had to follow the ribbon instructions carefully. I can’t tie a bow to save my life.
Complete! You’ll notice I skipped the pinecones. I wasn’t against it, but they didn’t have any at Hobby Lobby and I just didn’t want to go out and look for them. You’ll find this to be a comfy, but lazy Christmas season for me!
More Christmasy Crafts to come!
