DIY Christmas Bulb Wreath for the Holiday Season

This year I have been motivated to make my own wreaths to jazz up the front door.  I am now excited each time there is a new occasion to hang something fresh on the door.

For the holidays, I decided to try my hand at a Christmas bulb wreath.  I have loved every one that I have seen online, and they look super easy to make!  So I gathered supplies that I had picked up last year during after Christmas sales (I got the bulbs super cheap!) and went to town!

DIY Christmas Cards

I have been staring at the supplies to make our Christmas cards for the last couple of weeks.  Things have been crazy around here and I have been procrastinating.  So this afternoon I sat down with a few simple and inexpensive supplies, and I actually managed to finish the job!  Can you believe it?!  I can't!  I am still staring at the pile wondering how I got all 40 cards made in one afternoon!  Most of it was finished before the boys came home, which was a good strategy because they really like to 'help' and I was using a sharp blade and ink stampers.
