Handmade Christmas Challenge

The Handmade Christmas Challenge is certainly gathering momentum with new visitors each Saturday sharing their beautiful crafty creations. Selina has suggested running a handmade stocking christmas swap over here. Gorgeous felt decorations can be found over at Cat's place and for an eco-friendly, green Christmas, head over here.

This week, I'm thinking wreaths. I love the wreath in the top image and so too do my girls. We've decided to start searching our local beach to collect drift wood to make this gorgeous creation. Here's a few more wreaths, to wet your creative whistle's...


What wonderful creations are you making for Christmas? Have you spied someone else's creation that would be perfect for a loved one? Perhaps you need some help with a few ideas.To join in, just leave a comment and simply add your link below.You can join in anytime during the week.

Thanks for joining in my stocking swap! If you could send me your email address so I can get your swap details out to you, that would good. Can't wait to see what you come up with for your swap partner.

p.s. Loving these wreaths! I made a wreath one year using wrapped lollies. Might have to do that again and make up a tutorial. It was very easy and great for getting the kids involved.
