We have moved 4 times in the last year thanks to the Army  (7 more months and he will retire after 30 years!!!!).  My Christmas decorations are stuck in storage so I get to start over with all of my Christmas decor.  My dd and I have decided that a Grinch colored Christmas would be our theme this year and today we made a Wreath.  I followed a tutorial I found on the internet to make a deco mesh wreath with a work form.  I was unable to a work form in this area so I made my own with a wire wreath form from Hobby Lobby and pipe cleaners.  we plan on making quite a few decorations for the tree but I also bought a few to get us started.
