Part One: How to make your own Christmas Wreath & door handle decoration

dsc_0397I had so much fun making a fall wreath, I started collecting supplies for my Christmas wreath!  I never understood how cool a homemade wreath is for your front door until I created my fall leaf wreath.  I really enjoyed picking things out for this wreath and putting it together.  I decided I wanted to make a matching door hanger for the door knob, and ended up making two door knob decorations.  I HAD to have matching ones for the front and back door.  Plus I needed to check out two different colored ribbons because I couldn’t decide which one I liked better when I was buying my materials.   I just LOVE the overall look!  I will post the wreath and door hanger separately in case someone just wants ideas for one or the other!  So for the wreath first!!!

Materials are as follows;
