Here you see our wreath on our front door. This wreath is one that I’ve had for several years, but I reworked it for this year.
I had already painted and decoupaged some scrapbook paper onto this wooden initial that I used on the fall wreath. You can see that one here.
Now that is no small feat. I have been working on some ornaments for this tree for the past several weeks. And last night we had some high winds which blew the tree over. Luckily, I had not put any ornaments on it yet because I did not finish them until today.
I decided to make an ornament with everyone’s picture who is coming to the Crossroads Christmas Eve. We have a big family gathering that is always a lot of fun and special to each of us. So everyone can take home his or her photo as a memento of this year’s Christmas at the Crossroads.
I made the ornaments by gluing some scrapbook paper to balsa wood rectangles and then decoupaging the photos onto them. I also glued some of the scrapbook paper to some small wooden ornaments that I already had. Last year’s little burlap stockings are making a reappearance on the tree.
I haven’t shown you our tree inside the house yet, but I will soon. I hope all your decorating is about finished like mine. I’m ready to start thinking about food and baking.
