It's December and that means Christmas!
I'm busy creating gifts, which I can't yet reveal, but I took a break from gifts to make something for Ryan and myself: a wreath for our front door!
I'm pleased with how it turned out. I made it with a bangle I sacrificed as the middle ring. I had thought first of using a cardboard ring, as that'd have been easier to acquire but then I realized that it gets dusty here in Gurgaon and if I keep it to use in the future, I'll need to wash it after being outside for the next few weeks. So a bangle made more sense so it's hardy enough to be thrown in the wash. I sacrificed one of my larger ones, as they were getting a little too large anyway with my pre-baby weight loss that I hope to return to post pregnancy. Plus it made sense to be larger in the middle for a wreath anyway.
Ryan also seems pleased with it. We don't have a lot of decoration this year, as we're in the broke newlywed phase of life, plus the preparing for our first baby's arrival, so the only decorations this year are ones we already owned and whatever I happen to make. I think this wreath is a cheerful greeting to Ryan getting home and anyone who comes to our door proclaiming the season. He smiled and declared it, "really cute." My husband is not very enthusiastic about stuff like this, so that was high praise.
What are you crafting for the holidays?
