REdecorating for Christmast

The last few days I've been working on new Christmas decorations for the Apple House.  My shiny, modern, silver and cranberry decorations from the Seattle house just don't look right.  So I took a little trip to the dollar store and to the hardware store. . . then I pulled out the twine, the burlap, and the buttons and went to town with my glue gun!

Here is a preview of what I've been up to.

Cute little button and burlap "tree".

Twine, tea stained coffee filters, buttons, hot glue. . . . hurray!!!

 I'm really loving this wreath.  I gathered all of the materials from the orchard, the pine needles and the pine cones.  You can't really tell very well from this picture, but this wreath is BIG.  I want to hand something else inside of it, but I haven't decided what yet.
Five inch burlap and button "tree."

A button ornament.

The sticks for this wreath came from my front yard. I stuck them through burlap that was covering some floral foam and then hot glued buttons on. I really love this particularly cutie!

I'm having fun and loving how everything is turned out.  Later today we are off to get our Christmas tree and get try to get more serious about some seasonal decoration.

We are not traveling this year for Christmas, for the first time ever.  It is also the first Christmas that John Henry understands that something unusual is happening and I really want him to feel the magic and excitement of Christmas.  He is all ready very excited about the few decorations I've finished.
