Last year I wanted to do a craft project with my daughter. My front door needed a wreath, so I thought wreath making would be a good choice. She was dubious, claiming she is just not good at crafts. We headed to Michael's!
My daughter chose all natural elements, which suits her personality. In contrast, I chose the most sparkly stuff I could find. I am obsessed with anything glittery, sparkly, or twinkly. I have a theory. As we get older and our eyesight gets worse, the sparkly stuff is easier for us to see. By the time I am seventy, I will probably be wearing head to toe sequins...to the grocery store.
I thought her wreath was beautiful, and I proved to her that anyone can make a bow.
She is quite meticulous, and I wouldn't have been surprised if she measured the distance between berries and pinecones. She was very happy with her wreath and couldn't wait to hang it on her apartment door.
I chose ornaments for my wreath. I found some great ribbon, and a package of ornaments that matched perfectly. I bought larger ornaments to hang around the wreath. Not one for traditional colors, I chose copper and two shades of green.
Yes, it is one glittery wreath.
We decided to have a photo taken to
commemorate our fun project together!
