Welcome December!

I have been waiting for this day for months—the first day of December and the day I finally let myself pull out all the boxes of Christmas décor! I have cheated a little bit and over the weekend filled up all my empty vases and bowls with an assortment of ornaments, hung stockings from my rafters and switched out my candles. I think that next on my list is going to be a wreath—I am trying to decide if I should enjoy the aroma of a real one or the longer life of a less traditional option. I have long loved ones made of metallic balls and love the fun twist of placing it around faux antlered critters on the wall.

And the whimsical nature of this one decked in marshmallows would certainly be perfect way to tempt a white Christmas.

Or I could attempt to make a soft and romantic wreath with greenery and beautiful blooms.
But it would also be fun to make one out of colored card stock cutouts.
Lastly I have always wanted to have a pine cone wreath but don’t think I would ever be able to create the lovely the texture of this one.

Have you hauled your holiday décor boxes up from the basement?
