This project actually happened for the first time last year, and it was such a success that I knew I had to share it with you. I thought it would make more sense to wait until Christmas rolled around again, so that it would be a bit more relevant than if I shared it sometime in mid-February!
Near the beginning of the holiday season, I was flipping through one of those Christmas catalogs ~ you know, the ones that stores send en masse around this time of year? The same catalog that inspired me to make these.
As I was turning pages, I came across this picture:
I don’t even think this was an ad for anything; I’m pretty sure it was just background. But it got my creative juices flowing, and I decided that instead of my usual basket, I wanted to display my Christmas cards on a bulletin board wreath this year.
So, I supplied up:
It turned out that the biggest bulletin board squares I could find were really not that big, so I decided to make two wreaths instead of one.
I had a perfectly sized wooden wreath to trace that I had bought for another project ~ score! After tracing and cutting, I set about to wrapping my wreaths in ribbon.
Then a sad, sad situation occured: I underestimated the amount of ribbon I would need for each wreath.
So after a quick run to the store, I was able to finish up! Add some bows, and they’re ready to hang! For hooks, I used plain metal key rings.
I hung them on our wall that transitions between our living room and kitchen.
They’re a perfect decoration because they were beautiful on their own,
And they look awesome as they fill up with holiday greetings from our friends and families.
