homemade Christmas



Yesterday Andrew and I made a wreath for our door.



We started with a green foamy circle.



Andrew used my paper punches to punch out ba-zillion stars, large and small.



And I used pins to stick the stars to the circle. Simple, easy and cute project. I LOVE sitting with the boys doing things like this. REALLY makes me slow down and go their pace for a while. Which is just good for everyone.

What a great project that you can involve children in and it looks so very lovely!

SOOOOO cute! I've been wanting to make a wreath this year and I love the simplicity and cuteness of this one! Thanks for the inspiration. :o)

Cute! Andrew was working those hand muscles!

This would also be great in different colors for a 4th of July theme.

Tami: I got the wreath at Michael's in Staten Island. Sorry. Is it worth the $12 toll? ;) maybe...

Cute! Somehow our projects never look this classy. Enzo would have ripped those things apart, and Atticus certainly would have done drawings all over them. (-:

Do you just come up with these things on your own?

Cute and sophisticated. What kind of paper did you use?

Robyn said...

Hey Zenub! I used cardstock. Stampin' Up's always artichoke. ;)

That's interesting because in the photo, it looks metallic.
