A Santa Welcome!

It's 24 days until Christmas!!!

I can not wait until it gets here!

Starting with today, I am going to try to share something Christmas with you every day until December 25th.

If anything else comes up during that time that I want to talk about or share with you, then it will be a double post day! Yippee!

Today I want to share with you the Santa wreath you see on my front door. My friend, Susan D., and I got together a couple of weeks ago and made them.

We were inspired by one we saw on Etsy but we changed it up a little bit when we made ours. We are so happy with how they turned out! They are so fun! A little messy with all the burlap dust but still so fun!

As a matter of fact, we are getting together with a bunch of our family and friends this afternoon to teach them how to make one for their door.

I can't wait for fun and fellowship with a bunch of awesome women!

Sadly, once it comes down off my door today to take with me for the demo, it's not going back on it. I get direct sunlight during the day on the front of my house and I'm afraid it will fade the burlap. I'll put it on my living room wall . . . high enough that a certain little kitten can't reach it!

Here is a close-up of the wreath. Although you can't tell from the picture, the letters are glittered.

After we made the wreath, I posted a picture of it on Facebook and ended up inspiring a friend of mine who lives in an adjoining state.

Here is her interpretation of the wreath. She looped her burlap . . . if looped is even word . . . I don't know.
Great job, Amy!

This is so awesome! I have often thought it would be fun to do something similar with our red planters. Love the tie into Santa.

Thanks so much for linking up to Dare to DIY!
