Handmade for the Holidays!

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I've been busy as a bee crafting handmade gifts for the holidays. I know many of you enjoy giving handmade gifts, whether you shop for that special something or make it yourself, so today I'm sharing my latest creations.

This pure white tulle wreath with just a little sparkle would make a lovely wedding decoration or the perfect winter wonderland holiday wreath.  Available
