December wreaths

So many wreaths this December! It all started quite unsuspectingly the day after Thanksgiving when my sis-in-law Heidi wanted to make one, then I started making them in my kitchen with Shelby (another SIL), and for a whole week I would work on them while cooking dinner or winding down before bed at night. There's something about having a work station set up where I'm living that allows creative multi-tasking. I finally cleaned up that mess and moved out to the front porch on warmer days to work in the sun. The wreath with the red berries and pine was prickly, my hands suffered for days after, but it was one of my favorites to make even so. I gave some away to neighbors and found doors and windows all around the Mill and the barn for the rest of them. It kept decorating for Christmas pretty simple this year! 
My friend Hope taught me to make them just last year, and it opened up a whole new world to me! Julia at FairviewFarm.com did a great post using the same method, but I am posting this from my phone and can't for the life of me figure out how to add a direct link. Till I get it figured out you can go to her blog Fairviewfarms.com and search under tutorials.
I'm gonna go ahead and add mobile blogging to my list of things to learn about in the coming year.
Or maybe I'll just make another wreath. Hope your Christmas week is off to a jolly start!
