Christmas Wreath

Christmas at Glenwood has a decidedly Grinch feel this year. I'll get into the whole explanation in another post but basically all you need to know is, we are seriously half-assing it this year.

However, there are some things that can't be skipped and the annual wreath-making at my Mom's house is definitely one of those things. Here are a few pictures of the wreath that I made this year.

I knew I wanted to have Princess Pine in my wreath this year, so I cut some. Apparently, that is frown upon. I suppose I will know better for next year. But once I arrived with my greens, I wasn't really sure where to start or what to do. So I just started throwing stuff on the wreath form. Eventually, I ended up with a fairly bushy wreath of greens (though not quite as bushy and wild as last year). I was stumped.

What color bow?

What "add-ons"?

Where is my beer?

But eventually with a few suggestions and a lot of messing around, I decided to keep things fairly simple and natural by adding the different types of pine cones. For that special winter glitz I tossed in the silver berries and jingle bells.

I know I say this every year, but I think this is the best wreath I've ever made.


  1. The wreath is spectacular - and as far as your beer - I found the empty can while cleaning the basement, so I guess that is a non issue now!

  2. can you please get busy and post some more stuff - work is a bore!
