A “Joy”ful Wreath

I found some lovely crocheted mustard yellow squares while thrifting the other week. I love finding things like this because it means I don’t have to make it myself. I was trying to think of some ways to use them. I decided to make a Christmas wreath with three of the squares first. I embroidered the letters on with yarn, using a plastic yarn needle. Then thread them together with yarn. I added some pom poms for a finishing touch. 

It looks so perfect on our front door right now. Any other ideas for the squares? Some shared some good ideas on instagram already, but would love to hear more! Have you made a wreath for this winter season?

My Fall Wreath

Fall Wreath

What is it about fall that makes me want to make wreaths? I don’t know, but I do enjoy it. I got to finish this one up today finally. Miss E has had a tough week with teething (again…..) so her naps were not really giving me much time to do extra stuff. But she blessed me today!

Fall Wreath

Momma needs some quiet time every now and then to get her craft on ;) I bought the pumpkins/gourd at Walmart, had the fabric/twine/burlap in my stash, and picked up a grapevine wreath from a craft store to put this together. I really had no idea of what to do until I sat down and just started glueing things on.

I really LOVE texture, so this wreath makes me happy with the texture is provides. Now I’m thinking maybe I’ll even make a winer wreath this year? Have you made something for your doorway recently? Share links if you can :)
