Painted Harvest – A Christmas Wreath (and video lesson!!)

Happy Friday!!  Fridays are inherently great, but what makes me particularly happy is when I can find an alternate use for something I already have.  That is a crafter’s dream, right?  We walk through the kitchen section of IKEA and realize that their spice jars and racks are PERFECT for holding all of our little embellishments… and so on.

Today is kind of that way.  I am going to teach you to make a Christmas Wreath from a very summer/fall stamp set that we’ve used before… Painted Harvest.  I have a bonus tip for you too!  Be sure to check out the video, and then SUBSCRIBE for my YouTube channel… I have been busy creating for you, and have been working on filming all kinds of great projects for you – you are not going to want to miss any of them!  If you are receiving this post because you have subscribed to my blog, you may not be able to see the video right away…  Just click on the title of the post and it will bring you to the blog post where the video will appear…After the video, be sure to check out the supply list below.  A few of the items I have used in the video will be retiring at the end of this month, and are only available while supplies last – so don’t delay!
