Christmas Wreath

This year we have started a new tradition of letting the kids have their own tree.  They went with their papa and chopped it down.  It's a fat little tree just their size.  We've been making ornaments every day.  All of the decorations will be entirely homemade, by them.  Needless to say, they are loving it!  So far they've made the star (just glitter and cardstock), salt dough cookie cutter ornaments and pipe cleaner candy canes.  There must be a limit to this madness, so I think I'll narrow it down to a 12 days of Christmas type deal.  Anyway, so I was wondering what to do tomorrow and I came across this little wreath.  They like stringing beads, why not buttons?  

So as usual I got side tracked.  They get to have all the fun, how come I can't make anything?  So this entire post will just be Christmas wreaths.  I never considered myself a wreath person, but this year I may give it a whirl.

Now I liked this, except it seemed a little plain.  Needs a little jazzin' up.

Now isn't that snazzy.  Next...

 Well I think I just found my wreath.  Love this idea!  I'm using clothes pins in the kids' playroom to hang their artwork, so I'm very drawn to this, maybe it's just me.  I found another a little less complicated.  Oh Martha, you sure know how to simplify...

And last, but not least.  Pine cones.  Simple yet earthy.  I like it.  I'm not so in love with their lack of effort on the ribbon however.  That wouldn't be hard to fix.   

 Will update on the kid's tree and my wreath.  I will make time for this!
