Christmas wreath

I decided that I wanted to add to our Christmas decor. So off to Hobby Lobby ( 50% off on Christmas items) I go (with the kids). The kids were a great help, as the three of us couldn’t agree on anything. After about an hour and a half we checked out. I had to make a couple executive decisions, and compromises.

I can’t wait to hang it on my door!
