Santa Wreath Tutorial & 8 Year Weekend Photos ♥

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Hello! I hope you’re all getting in to the Christmas spirit and planning some great decorations for you home! I can help! Today I have another great decoration tutorial for you; A Santa themed Wreath. It’s so simple and cute and it’s also so easy to do!

After you finish watching the tutorial, if you scroll down this page a little further, you’ll find some photos that I wanted to share with you all. I meant to share them a few weeks ago after I took them, but I’ve been busy preparing for all these awesome Christmas posts!! :D
Before I show you the video, here’s the very short list of items you will need to create your own great Santa Wreath, and, as I mention in the video, if you do decide to try it yourselves I’d love to see! Just post a photo on Instagram or facebook or twitter and tag me in the post! ;) Okay, here’s that list and the video:

- Wire Wreath Form - $4.99 @Michaels +Michaels Stores
- 3 Rolls of Red Burlap (or approx. 30ft) - $5.99 per roll @Michaels
- 1 Meter of Black Ribbon, 1 inch wide - $1.45 @Michaels
- Small Piece of Velcro, 1 inch wide - I already had this, but you can get it @Walmart
- Scrap Piece of Foam Core or Cardboard
- Gold Paint - I already had this but you can it it @Walmart. I believe it is $4.97
- Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

So, hope you liked that one! Let me know what you think or if you have any questions or just want to say “hello” by commenting below this post! ;) And don’t forget to tag me on social medias in your photos of this project!

K, so now, on to some photos. My boyfriend and I went on a little weekend trip when I got back from visiting family back home. It was sort of a belated celebratory weekend away of us being together for 8 years since I was away when the actual date came up. We went to one of our favorite places to go, which is the Fairmont Hot Springs in B.C. It’s surrounded by beauty!

On our drive there we saw a few animals including this guy. He was pretty big and didn’t really care that we were so nearby – he just moseyed on his way right passed us and then crossed the highway.

We also saw a wolf on our way but it wasn’t a good place to stop to get any photos and he was running pretty quickly.

On our return drive we saw a bunch of these ladies hanging out in the town of Radium. It seems like every time we’re passing through there we either see some of these sheep or some deer snacking on grass or leaves. They just look at you like, “What?!”.

Here’s a photo of the beautiful mountains just outside the doors of the resort.

And, of course, me in this huge chair, since, if you’ve been reading my blog from early on, you may remember I have a fascination of over-sized anything. If not, click here for that post.

And, finally, a picture of the two of us. Happy 8 years together my ♥!

So, here we are, at the end of another blog post. I hope you all enjoyed the tutorial and this little glimpse into my life. I’ll have more tutorials for you this week! Stay tuned! ;)
