Some days when you’re home with bored kids, and one of them says “I’m going to make a wreath”… you go outside and help. 🙂
We had fun cutting branches off one of our cedar trees. I do admit that Justin did not think us using his wire cutters was very fun… but they worked, so I used them. 🤷♀️
Once we gathered plenty of branches (use gloves, friends. You’ll be glad you did!) we put them in a circular shape so be tied together with tinsel. Because when the crafting is spontaneous, you use what you have. We had tinsel.
Once the wreath was secured in a circle, we hot glued smaller pieces of the cedar branches to cover the tinsel and fill it out some. Afterward, the girls thought it needed a little something extra, so we grabbed a roll of old lace ribbon and voila! Done!
I’ll be honest, it’s not one I would buy at the store or see and think it is amazing. But it was made by us and that makes it beautiful to me. ❤️🥰
Ps—sometimes when you’re deep into a craft with your older daughter, your younger daughter decides that’s a perfect time to become a whittler. So she goes to your kitchen, grabs a steak knife 😳, and gets to work on one of the discarded branches. 😬
Annnnd you figure you needed new knives anyway so you will allow it. 🤷♀️😆
