Merry Christmas

We’ve made it, Friends! Through all the hustle and bustle of the past weeks, the worries of completing our overly large to-do lists, we have finally arrived at the moment we’ve been waiting for. The reason for the season. Merry Christmas to all! May the light and the spirit of the holiday fill your hearts with joy, laughter, and peace.

The gang over at Authentique thought it would be fun to share one last holiday treat with you.  So we’ve gotten together to share some holiday ornament ideas on the blog today, all made with Authentique’s adorable Believe collection.

I love adding a handmade ornament to my collection every year, and the team has come up with some really clever ideas that I can’t wait to try. For my ornament, I made a quick and easy holly berry wreath from tiny wooden spools wrapped in a variety of Believe patterned papers.

Threaded the spools onto thin craft wire, and topped it off with a big candy stripe bow, a trio of pom pom berries, and hand-stitched felt holly leaves.

Thanks so much for stopping by, today and throughout the past year. I count your sweet friendships as one of my biggest gifts of all! Merry Christmas, Friends!
