I made this wreath using just a few simple “ingredients” in about 30 minutes or less.  It turned out to be one of my most favorite wreaths that I’ve ever constructed, and believe me, I’ve made a LOT of homemade wreaths in my day.

There have been some great wreaths, some good wreaths, and some really bad wreaths.  And one horrifying, embarrassing, should-have-been-deleted-from-the-blog-archives-long-ago number

Anyway….  the point is, I’m no stranger to the wreath-making game.

But THIS one?? Y’all, this pretty little wreath has just topped my all-time favorite DIY wreath list.  I am SO excited with the way it turned out.  I was asked to donate a wreath for the “Wall of Wreaths” at the Jr. League of Birmingham’s Market Noel this year, so this is what I came up with.

It’s simple, stylish, and I hope it racks up a bunch of silent auction money for charity!  It’s up for auction tonight, so we will see!  In the meantime, I hope that you will head over to check out the step-by-step tutorial where I tell you exactly how I made this pretty thing.

PS—Don’t you guys just LOVE these dainty little stars-on-a-string?  I saw this wooden star garland on a string in Jen Rizzo’s booth at the Cane County Flea Market last month, and I knew that I had to have it.  They are adorable!!

But, now that I have given away all my tiny star garland to be auctioned off for charity, I need even MORE of it!  I hope Jen is reading this, so she can tell me how to buy more.  I plan on using it again in my Christmas decorations this year!  And speaking of that–I will be a stop on Jen Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk again this year!  SO excited for these amazing Christmas home tours with some of my favorite home bloggers!  My post goes up on December 3rd, so mark your calendars, ok??
