Christmas celebration is year-round for me. However, in December, I get to deck the halls and drink some hot chocolate by the fireplace all while listening to holiday music. I also like watching classic Christmas movies, like Home Alone 1 & 2 and Elf. Okay, maybe they are not that classic but I sure do enjoy watching some of the movies I and my kids grew up on. However, Christmas is so much more to me than the reasons most celebrate. I get to celebrate the hope that I have in Christ Jesus, my Lord, and Savior. Although there may be controversies as to Jesus’ actual birth, it doesn’t bother me. I choose to celebrate this day as a day to honor and remember what God has done for all creation, alongside my family and friends.

In Romans 14:5-6 (NLT) the Bible speaks about our convictions on how we esteem certain days.
5 One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. 6 Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. […]

Further in Colossians 2:16-17 (NLT) we are warned to not feel condemned for not celebrating certain holy days (holidays).
16 So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new moon ceremonies or Sabbaths. 17 For these rules are only shadows of the reality yet to come. And Christ himself is that reality.

 Christmas is a season of giving and it sets the tone of how we should live our everyday lives after the lights and decorations go down. We can be a light that shares the gift of the hope Jesus brings year-round.  Somehow the miracle of this season can make some of us be more loving, a little nicer, more giving, and forgiving. On the other hand, there is commercialism and vandalism, and the crimes can get higher. Nonetheless, I enjoy this time of year. So to prepare my home for Christmas this year, I put together a poinsettia Christmas wreath.

Let’s get started…

Interchangeable Wreath

Interchangeable Wreath

I made this interchangeable wreath project for fall. All it means is that I didn’t put the fall decor permanently and was able to easily remove and now it is ready for my Christmas decor. Check out how to make this interchangeable twine wreath here.

Let’s Make a Bow

Use the burlap to make your first bow. I didn’t actually measure my bow. I just eyed it to how big I wanted it. Then, fold over twice and cut.

Slightly pull out sides diagonally. Then, crimp together and tie with a piece of wire. Then bring down both ends, fold each end and snip diagonally towards the fold.

Setting the Foundation

Use the three popsicle sticks to make the shape of the wreath. Use the actual wreath to determine width. Use the hot glue gun to stick them together.

Begin to glue on the wired garland ties to the popsicle sticks. I used three on each side and then two for the top-once I added the bow and ponsettas.

Once my foundation was done, I began to add the poinsettias and bow (check preferred placement before glueing). I added two pine cones, two berries – one to each side, and vase fillers around the wreath.

Let’s Paint the Ornament

I used acrylic paints in Christmas Green, Crisp Green, and Metallic Gold. You will need fine brushes to get the areas that are connected to each other (words and leaves). I found the ornaments at Hobby Lobby, but you can also finds some good ones at the Dollar Tree.

As you can see the letters are in gold and I used the Christmas Green acrylic as the base color. Then I added subtle highlights of the Crisp Green acrylic to finish it off. Attach the string to the ornament and hook it onto the wreath.

And that was the last piece to add. It’s ready to be hung on my door.

That’s all!

My wreath is up and welcoming to all who come to my door. Merry Christmas friends!
