Christmas Project Past
By the time I made it, I didn't have the pattern, just a little instruction from Mom and my memories of what hers looked like.
It's basically just a tube of fabric with a foam wreath form inside (you have to cut the foam to put the fabric on). And then, I tacked the bow on to the front.
It's not an evergreen wreath or an ornament wreath. It's not yarn wrapped. It's not trendy at all. But I love it. I love the bright red bow and ric-rac. I love the ruffles. I love the cute Christmas tree fabric. And, I love that it is like the one I grew up with. It reminds me of coming home from school to find that my mom had decorated for Christmas because the wreath was on the door.
Do you have any decorations in your home that remind you of your childhood?
