Wooden Spoon Craft: Snowman Spoon Puppet

These would be great for a kid’s puppet show (obviously) or to stick in floral foam as part of a centerpiece. If you have indoor herbs and spices growing, these would also be adorable to plop in the pot for winter decor! I’ve started to make my foyer snowman/snowflake decor instead of Christmas. That way, I can leave it up until Valentine’s Day or Easter (depending on how ambitious I am feeling).

You could also tie a candy around the stem, then cover with the ribbon, and use these as a cute little take home Christmas brunch or dinner favor. Add a name to that candy and it becomes a name card for your holiday dinner table!

Golden Swan Wreath DIY

This stunning wreath takes only 15 minutes to make! Perfect for so many holidays, party functions (think bridal or shower), or as a year-round wreath with a bit of bling, this unusual swan wreath is lovely wall décor or door décor!

Sometimes when my niece comes in with her ideas I give her the old side eye and wonder what she was thinking. When she pulled out the swan (first) … wellll let’s just say I was skeptical. Then she plopped it down on the wreath and I was sold! Yeah, sometimes I gotta see it to understand, but this one was simple to buy into.

I thought this wreath was going to be a winter wreath. Then, it came together and it is just so much more! You could hang it for Christmas, winter, a baby shower, bridal shower, 50th wedding anniversary, sweet 16 – just an all around flexible wreath decor.

Once again my photography skills have failed to convey just how beautiful a wreath this truly is. It sparkles, it glistens, it just pops out at you when you see it. I think I need more photography lessons.

Notes:

• This truly was a 15-minute craft. There are very few pieces, and yet the end result is simply gorgeous. Neither my niece nor I keep many of these crafts (they go to friends & family, she will sell them on Facebook marketplace, or they get donated to the nursing home where my father resides), but this one she claimed even before she started it. LOL She knew exactly how gorgeous it would be. My photography “skills” do not do this justice. It is truly lovely.

• The swan in resting on a piece of greenery because this is white on cream. Without the greenery, the swan would be completely lost on that wreath.

• The greenery chosen is substantial. There were three, fairly thick wires under that wrap. When you can’t immediately clip through the floral wire, just work it back and forth by bending it after the initial clip. You will have made a dent in the wire weakening its integrity, and by bending back and forth the wire will then snap.

Note: everything on this wreath was purchase at my local craft store last week. Winter is in-season at your local Joann Fabric, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby right now!
