My mom has always made our wreaths, and I’ve never put much thought into it., but as I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that it’s unusual to do so – people prefer the kind they can pull out year after year without fail and quickly hang than move on. It’s sad, we’ve lost so much of our ability to craft with our hands.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to take the hassle out of everything, but at what point did things like this become a hassle?
When my mom stated that they were making them this year I was quick to say count me in.
We had so much live greenery, because we just cut down the evergreen that was completely taking over our driveway. So mixing that with some pine cones, wire, clippers, a frame and pins, we were on our way! Nothing says Christmas quite like half the family getting together to make things by hand while Chirstmas carols sing in the background. It was honestly the farthest thing from a hassle. It was just a fun way to rewind on a Saturday with the folks and the finished product was beautiful. My mom let me hang it on the backdoor.
