      Thanks, Virginia! Thankfully, I like things over-sized, so I agree with you! πŸ™‚

    πŸ™‚ oh! I love how over-sized it is! don’t know why but I love over-sized wreaths very much! πŸ™‚
    yours feels very welcoming too! I bought those happy pinecones too and put them in a bowl; much better than the ones from outside (I agree) πŸ™‚

      Me too, Ingrid! I’m tempted to make another one for on top of my mantel! I’m so glad that I wasn’t the only one buying pinecones. I felt like, “Aren’t these just chucked out of trees willy-nilly?”

      Mine just aren’t very aesthetically pleasing. πŸ˜‰

        about the pine cones… you can make your own pine cones from nature look like the ones you buy from the store by placing them in a low temp oven 200.. 250 degrees for about 30 mins. or untill they open up. Pine cones are actually the flower of the pine tree. you have to help them bloom. πŸ™‚ also it burns up those little no seeums critters that may be occupying them..

    Clip & dash!! I laughed out loud at that image!

    That wreath is gorgeous! Full and lush and just the thing to welcome with holiday cheers!

    And I like how you wrapped the ornaments with the ribbon. I may have to borrow that idea!

    Cheers,

      I love that word – lush! Thank you so much, Becky!

      And yes, Lucy and I were super-stealth cedar-bough-gathering ninjas.

      With a double stroller and a giant bag of greenery. Very covert! πŸ˜‰

    You cracked me up with your “clip and dash” story (may have done it a time or two in my day- just saying!). In this case, bigger is better- love how it fills your front door and you’ve mixed in the perfect amount of color and texture. Thanks for organizing this shindig- so much fun!

    Bah ha ha! I love that you “borrowed” the greenery from your neighborhood. But in truth, you were probably just helping everyone out with their pruning! Consider it your random act of kindness for the week! Lol.

    The outcome is really stunning, Tara. I’ve always been intimidated to build a wreath with real live evergreens, but you walk me through it all in such a way, I feel empowered! (Sign of a successful tutorial and influential blogger, I dare say.) And you KNOW I dig the glitter curlies and the disco belts on those plastic ball ornaments. A real show-stopper!

    Can’t wait to hop around and visit some of my other Canadian blogger friends! So many sweet, familiar faces in this mix!

      Thank you so much for your sweet words, Lauren! And who doesn’t dig glitter curlies? Even writing that gives me a smile. You should throw intimidation to the side and try your hand at making a wreath! Believe me, if I can do it, you’ll make it a showstopper! πŸ™‚

      It smells pretty nice (although it’s outside, so I don’t get to reap the benefits). I love cedar… do they make cedar potpourri? And would that be weird?

    Your wreath looks amazing. I wish you would have been wearing a go pro camera or something on your clip-n-dash. I would have paid good money to see that πŸ™‚ And when I say good money… I actually mean no money, because I’m poor. haha. But I would have loved to see it. And/or be a part of said shenanigan.

    Hi Tara! First of all, your blog and Social Media presence is amazing! Secondly, I love the wreath for several reasons. It is very stylish, very DIY and as you shared inexpensive. I wish I could have participated in this amazing blog hop but my blog migration and redesign has created a bit of blip while I wait for things to be taken care of! Have pinned and tweeted! ~Thea

    “How hard can it be?” – famous last words, right? But for you it turned out fantastic! And I totally love that you used stolen cedar – gives it a bit of an adventurous flair!
