Do you wanna build a snowman?
Come on let’s go and play
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It’s like you’ve gone away…
Winter time and the famous song from FROZEN. All you need is a hot Cocoa and tuck yourself in a warm blanket.
Christmas is here, and so the time for big holiday plans, decorating the fir-tree, buying gifts, preparing a long list of wishes for Santa and waiting for the gifts!!!
As a pleasant surprise, my client who had liked my Halloween wreath asked me to make a similar one for the Christmas.
There are 2-3 DIY activities included here.
- crochet leaves.
- collect pine cones from the ground.
- clean pine cones.
- assemble all.
I liked the leaf structure designed in MyPicot. Irish Crochet is very intricate and attractive. I used 2 different shades of leaves to give natural look.
Collect Pine Cones from the ground:-
Since Pine trees surround my area, it was in abundance. I collected a few similar sized pines. It was a good hunt walking around the area in search of pinecones!
Clean Pine Cones:-
I cleaned them by using this method. And bought the wire wreath, two green shades of yarn representing different colours of leaves, pliers and green paddle wire from Jo-Ann. And the ‘Christmas Wreath’ was ready!
