This is the time of year when it finally hits me that the holidays are almost here. Of course, I’m not ready—I feel like I just cleared out the Thanksgiving decorations, and now it’s time to dress up my living space for Christmas. My shopping list is still a mile long even after Black Friday, there’s nothing peppermint-flavored in my kitchen, and I definitely haven’t gotten a tree yet. Despite the fact that Christmas decorations have been in the shops since, oh, September or so at this point, every year I get caught unprepared and under-decorated. If you’re starting to fret about your holiday home decor, fret no more. It doesn’t take much to get that festive feeling in your home! A DIY Christmas wreath can go a long way towards adding some festive cheer to your home! Hang over your mantle or on your front door—after all, what says “welcome” like a handmade wreath?
