I didn’t make my wreath this year. I usually try to make it from the tree clippings. However, I found a faux-frosty one on clearance at Target (my favorite post-Christmas place!) last January. I needed to add a little to it. Since we’re all white and silver this year, I decided to add pearl beads […]
