|Family History and Collectibles|
|Making A Wreath Personal|
|These two go perfect together and this week's article includes a project using collectibles to commemorate and start a family history.
This was inspired by a seminar presented by ornament expert Clara Scroggins. She showed pictures of her wonderful family
wreath with ornaments representing the important times of her life.
Many families already look for special Christmas ornaments for their children to use on a tree, this is another way to showcase the ornaments the family has collected over the years. Think about starting a traditional family wreath with the cherished collectibles from the past years or start a new one this year with some of the terrific ornaments available today. Depending on the ribbons/decorations used, the wreath could even be displayed year-round.
The simple project is a wreath designed for our little niece. Laura is not quite one year old and is at a perfect age to easily start a a tradition like this. Yes, the wreath is a little sparse, but just wait a few years and it will be filled with memories.
