A Homemade Holiday

As some of you may know my grandma (actually my boyfriend's grandma whom I rent a room from) has been on bed rest from her foot surgery. By now, she would have decorated the whole house for the holidays; and she goes all out with lights and banners and a mini-carousel, and candles and so much I can't even recall.

So I wanted to do something to help decorate this year. I found this great holiday guide on, one of my new favorite online boutiques. The inspirations are phenomenal. So elegant and beautiful. I wanted to add just a touch of elegance to the decorations this year and make my grandma smile. I decided to make a holiday wreath.

I coffee-stained pages from an old book and rolled them up. I placed them around a circle I cut from a scrap piece of cardboard. Deviating from ruche's example, I just did one layer all around the circle and wove a green/blue ribbon in-between the "spokes". The result turned out great!

I'm not sure if the picture does it justice (all I have is an iphone camera), because my friends liked it so much they convinced me to host a holiday crafting party in a couple of weeks!

Now I have to decide what other holiday crafts we should do! I also love the branches planted in the sewing-patterned pot. Holiday cards would look so cute clipped onto them!
