There is one thing you can always count on finding around my house when Christmas is coming, and that is wreaths. I just love them. From simple to fancy, I hang them on doors, over the mantel, and even on light posts. Since I like to change things from year to year, I decided to make a new one for this holiday season. The result is this festive embroidery hoop Christmas wreath.

It combines a couple of my favorite things, crafting and scrap fabric busting. Best of all, it is easy to make.

If you are a quilter, you probably have the fabric scraps you need, but if you aren’t, there are many places to purchase small pieces. The other supplies are also readily available.

I hope you give this fun wreath a try. It is eye-catching and, since you make it yourself, it is a one-of-a-kind decoration.
