I love Christmas time. It’s one of my favorite times of the year for crafting too. Every year I make wreaths. This year, I wanted one of the wreaths to showcase the beauty of a simple and peaceful Christmas. So I featured a little tin church, some decorative sprigs as well as the Star of Bethlehem. I combined some off the shelf letters and a simple grapevine wreath as a jumping off point. The rest just seemed to come together for this lettered wreath with a little bit of inspiration from the Christmas season displays in town.
We try to maximize our time outdoors for as long as we can. We enjoy dining al fresco from spring until early November. When we dine outside I love having real plates and silverware outside but sometimes keeping everything organized and getting it outside can be the most difficult part. I came up with the perfect solution to keep all the silverware organized and in tow. With three mason jars, a birch slice, and a branch, this rustic mason jar utensil holder was born! Necessity is the mother of invention and this sure was the case! I love it because it is durable, hand-washable and adds a fun touch of whimsy to our time spent dining outdoors.
