DIY Patriotic Wreath from 99¢ Store Materials

I like to decorate for the holidays, but I don't like spending lots of money to do so.  Recently, I put together a red, white, and blue door wreath using supplies gathered at the local 99¢ Store.  




No tricky steps needed to make this wreath!  

Supplies:
one wreath form (I already had one on hand.  I used a straw one, but any kind could do.)
8 white carnation bunches (6 blossoms per bunch)
3 packages of windmills
1 welcome star

Directions:  
Separate each carnation stem from the bunch, by clipping with wire cutters. 
Cover the wreath form by simply pushing the wire stems of the carnations into the form.
Add the windmills by pushing the wooden handles into the wreath form.
Break any handles that are poking out the back.
Hang the wreath, then hang the welcome star on top.

Enjoy your patriotic wreath!

  5. I actually planned the whole wreath around those windmills. They were so cute, I just had to do something with them!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
