never too late, right?

I have been meaning to post this photo for a loooooong time. Like since before Christmas, when it might have been helpful to you. (Whoops!)

Remember those wreaths we made from autumn leaves we had collected way back at one of the Fall OSM days? I hope you enjoyed that project--we enjoyed ours until it was time to get out the Christmas decorations, and then my oldest daughter G had a great idea--she took off the autumn-hued ribbon, pulled as much leaf as she could from the cardboard forms, then gathered redwood leaves and cones from our backyard, glued them on, put on a more Christmassy ribbon, and voila!

It looked fantastic there against the wood wall, don't you think?

So this was just an idea in case any of you still have those cardboard forms we used, or if you liked the idea to try again for a different season of the year. : )

OH! what if the kids did this with jelly beans for Easter??!!! how cute would THAT be?!


Clearly you can let your imagination run wild with this idea. : ) If any of you had pics from the wreaths we made together that you want to share, please upload and post them if you are an author, or email them to me.
