{Gift Idea} DIY Sweater Wreath & Our 1st WhipperBerry Event!!

I’m so excited, I can hardly sleep.  The WhipperChicks are hard at work on {oh wait, I should save the good stuff for the end of the post!}

We’ll I’m super excited about this too.  I have been working on a fun little project for a dear friend of mine and I thought I would share.

Sweater Wreath

Now I love wreaths of all shapes and sizes, but I especially love square and rectangle wreaths.  I’m also in love with the sweater trend right now and thought it would make a lovely wreath with some cuddly sweater flowers and burlap embellishments.  I will have a tutorial on how to make the wreath soon.

Sweater Flowers

But, I already have a sweater flower tutorial to get you started.

Now on to the big announcement…

WhipperBerry is hosting a 12 Days of Christmas event. 

For years my family and I have found someone in our community who could use a little Christmas cheer—an elderly neighbor, someone who has hit hard times, or just feeling a little blue—and we would leave little gifts and goodies on their door step starting on December 13th thru December 24th.  Our first year, right after we were married, my husband and I choose our neighbor who was the cutest little elderly widow. We would run through the snow and quietly leave a little goodie on her doorstep and then try to cover our tracks so that she wouldn’t find out!  It was so much FUN and I know it brightened her holidays as well. 

We are starting our event on December 1st so that if you choose to participate you have time to plan and prepare to start your 12 days of Christmas on December 13th.  You can also choose to start on December 14th with your last gift being delivered on Christmas, or you also have the more traditional 12 Days of Christmas option of day one being Christmas Day.  But however you choose to do it, we’ve created a fun poem and will include that with a free printable each day, along with tutorials for inspiration!

On December 13th we will then have a link party to see what you have come up with and then showcase everyone’s fabulous ideas.  Everyone ready?  Operation 12 Days of Christmas will start tomorrow, December 1st!

    What a terrific idea! and with the Christmas season being so lonely for some and the jobs and things people have lost this year, this is sure to delight!
