On My Door

I've had the same Christmas wreath on my door for at least 20 years and I've been on the hunt for something new...something different. I didn't know what I wanted, but I'd know it when I saw it and I saw it HERE. This was it:

                                                sisal rope wrapped around metal wreath frame

In an earlier post I shared this photo when I was working on it:


I finished it


 and I love the way it turned out!


I want to make a smaller one next that I can use during the year. The original is a 12" wreath. I biggie sized my version.

My mom doesn't have a cell phone, but she was at a gathering with some friends and one of them texted me about something. I had told mom about the wreath so I sent a picture to her friend, J, so mom could see it and J asked me to make her one. Of course...but not THIS Christmas. LOL. my fingers need a break anyway - that's a lot of weaving!

I love your wreath! It's perfect for a ranch house. I hope I can make one soon, thanks for the link to the tutorial. I need to try your pecans too. Hubby and my youngest daughter love them, but they are hard to find here too.

Karin, your wreath is beautiful. I am so excited to have found your blog again. We first “met” on scrapbooking site around 2004 or so. I am catching up on your blog. You are such a talented crafter and writer. I am sure I will enjoy catching up.
