Festive Projects
Do you enjoy creating your own festive decorations for the holidays?

I enjoy it alot, when time allows it. I plan to make a live wreath this year.

Home-made wreaths are way better than the fake ones. Are you following any certain instructions to make this wreath?

I am planning on making centerpieces this year, along with helping my sister make candles that she can give as gifts. I love making different Christmas decorations.:celebrate:

Have you heard on Safeway's Inspired Holiday site? They have a lot of festive projects you can use to help decorate for Christmas. They have this Candy Cane Vase that would make for a beautiful center piece.

I'm being very creative this year :)&

Have made a wreath with lights (base of moss) to put on my wall and another one for my sister as a present.

Made a wreath for my front door with a grapevine base and only part of it decorated with greens.

Now in the process of making a garland for my banister which is a LOT of work but also a lot of fun.

I will also make something with mistletoe. I put together a branch of spur with mistletoe, tie a string of just ten lights through it and a few small golden balls on string. Then a pretty bow on top. Makes a beautiful arrangement and something unique to do with the mistletoe.

I love the candycane vase !!

Kerst, how long is your banister? Are you drenching the garland with lights, berries, or ornaments?

I know, the vase is breath-taking. Here is the link to Safeway's holiday site that describes how to put it together.

There's actually a lot of creative projects on there other than the vase. Looks like simple materials too that we may already have lying around the house.
