Two Christmas Wreaths and Custom Signs

I just completed two wreaths for Christmas! I know, it isn't even Thanksgiving yet. But if you're like me, you just can't wait to pull out those Christmas decorations. A month or so ago, I taught you how to make a Felt Flower Wreath.

I adapted it for Christmas, and here it is:

I used two colors of red and ivory felt to make the flowers. Bright red berries and sparkly red ribbon add to the bright look. I finished it off with a green H. This one is for my friend, Rachel.

If you'd like for me to make one for you, please email me at aliciaslittlehouse{at}gmail{dot}com.

I was curious when I made the fall wreath about how it would hold up. Well, it seems to be doing great! Here's an un-touched-up picture of it on my door today. I do have a porch, so it's not in direct sunlight. 

Here's the second wreath. It's a burlap ruffle wreath with a little holiday bling. There are three ribbon flowers with a red ruffle on the inside rim. The polk-a-dot ribbon ties the colors together. I'll post a tutorial soon if you're interested in making your own. 


Here's a close-up of the flowers. They are made by scrunching up wire ribbon on one side and creating a spiral.

I also finished a few custom signs. If you would like to order one in time for Christmas, please let me know soon. This sign is a Christmas gift for a friend's dad. It's gray with cream letters. It's pretty small. These start around $30.

I think this one is so cute. It's blue-green with platinum accents on "priceless."

The next two are for a friend's kids' rooms. She prayed these verses over her kids while pregnant. I want to find verses for my kiddos now. I matched the colors to their bedding. 

If you'd like more information on any of these items, please email me at aliciaslittlehouse{at}gmail{dot}com.
