DIY: Fabric Wreath for a Thanksgiving Hostess Gift, a Winner and Another Book Giveaway


Originally, wreaths symbolized eternal hope, were usually displayed at Christmas and were made from evergreens to represent the strength of life they showed by persevering through long, cold winters. Wreaths still represent an unending circle of life, but now they can be found at all times of the year and are made from all kinds of materials.

Because my daughter, Katie is hosting our family’s Thanksgiving celebration this year, I thought this wreath made with the leftover fabrics from her wedding would be the perfect hostess gift to remind us all of that very special day.
