crafting for christmas

so, many of you may or may not remember this post from january this year. i made a yarn ball wreath. it is wintery, not christmas-y. and, if you remember correctly, i made it because i was inspired by this wreath, which found itself in probably every starbucks in america...






it is loved by many knitters all over the country and beyond. (just google search "starbucks yarn wreath" and see what you find, if you are curious.) so, as i may or may not have stated in my january post, i was determined to make one for this christmas.

and i did just that. it definitely isn't as big as the one pictured above, as mine only needs to be one-sided. but, it's pretty big in it's own right. it didn't take too much time, and if styrofoam balls were cheaper, it would have been fairly inexpensive. not that it was expensive to make, but i digress. i have gotten the blog ready for christmas because jay and i will be celebrating some of our family christmases this weekend, but i plan to hang up my wreath when we get back from nashville. want to see it? i like how it turned out.
