The Wreath



It all started with this snowball ornament. My sister and I were shopping in August when we came upon this snowball ornament in a little shop. My sister fell in love with his face. It made her smile a great big smile, but she didn’t buy it.



I went back the next day and bought  three of them. I originally intended to give them to her as is, but that was much too boring. So, I came up with the idea to create a wreath for her.




My daughter came up with the idea to add the berries, and my cousin came up with the idea to add the baby’s breath.



My sister’s best friend made the bow.



And the silver and gold glass beads belonged to my mother. I strung them on wire.



The completed creation made for my sister by four women who love her dearly and, of course, a special remembrance of our mom weaved in.

A wreath truly made with love.
