Wreaths, yes, but how far can you take it?

I want to put a wreath together that has pictures on it too so it gives it more of a personal feeling. I haven't been able to see any examples though. The closest thing I've found is this keepsake, and I can see how that would work in a sort of different way. Has anyone done what I'm describing? Here's the keepsake thingy... (like I said, it's close but I'm still looking.)http://www.howvids.com/Hobbies/How_to_make_a_Christmas_Keepsake.ad2

stocking

This past Christmas we made decorations that you place on the back of your dinning room chairs. We bought some small wreaths, decorated those with various decorations, and then used wired ribbon to tie onto the chair opening. You can tie the ribbon in a bow. The more ribbon you use the fuller it will look.We used white wreaths, with silver decorations, and the ribbon was white and silver.

I do enjoy it. I make our wreaths and our garland from the woods behind us. For me, it's so much more beautiful when we get it the way we like it. I love the smell throughout the house of Christmas pine!

I think the crafty gene passed me! My Aunt can make beautiful stuff, as can my mother and all of her sisters but me? Nah! I can cross-stitch and follow a pattern but when it comes to wreaths and what-not, I have no imagination. That doesn't mean I don't try! Just not very often and definitely not for anything Christmas related...don't want to taint the holiday with my craft project "wanna-be's"! lol

Wow! you guys are an inspiration! I should try to make a wreath this year. My kids and I make ornaments and stuff but nothing major. I love the "idea" of making tons of things but the reality is, I dont have the time (or patience lol)

This year I am making new Christmas stocking for everyone, i've bought some cream velour to make them from with fleece lining and i'll decorate with sequins ribbons etc, i'm hoping they'll look quite vintage when they're finished.

I'm so looking forward to seeing them hanging from the fireplace
