Caleb's Twilight Wreath



My 23 year old Caleb saw my wreaths on facebook and said he wanted me to make him a Goth one. I was honored! And challenged!When he told me the colors he wanted- Red, Black and Silver, I thought to myself, A Twilight wreath! He also wanted some sort of Silver/Gothic looking Jewelry attached to it... Gulp! Could this sugary sweet pastel girl pull that off? Well, I am a Twilight fan so there must be some Goth style in me, eh?
I used Red and Black lace, Red and Black eyelet and Silver ribbons. I was happy with how it turned out... Once he got it, Caleb rearranged the jewelry on it differently than I had it and he hung in on his Red and Black bedroom wall between his Twilight posters. Caleb and I are Twilight fans together.
I'm putting together a "What I got for Christmas" post and it might be ready by tomorrow if you can come back by. I love for you to come over!

Love the wreath Holly. It turned out awesome. What I love even more is the fact that one of your boys actually requested you make them one. That is so sweet and I bet it made you feel great to know how much Caleb appreciates and enjoys your craftiness. Have a great day!!

Oh My Gosh Holly...
Sweetie you did a fabulous job. I love this wreath. The colors turned out beautifully mixed together, and I am sure your Caleb did love it. For a pinkie, you outdid yourself. Caleb will love this for years to come, and who says guys can't appreciate crafts?

Thanks for sharing sweetie. I love it when you do. Have a beautiful day. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

Hey Holly!
The wreath is soooo cool! I bet Caleb does love that...you did such a great job.
Glad you shared that snow picture....I'm lovin' the pics of you with that snowman, (wow, did y'all ever get some snow!) and also the one of you and your brother when you were little...what a treasure that one is!

Nope, I could never get tired of that kitty...the card you made for the library ladies is precious! I had such fun reading your posts...see you again soon!

What a fun memory! I doubt you will ever forget the fact you went goth...for a few hours and back! That really fits into my thoughts of some rules are to be broken! This post just makes me smile. I have a son that likes sculls...ick...I'm not sure what I'd do if he asked me to make a scull wreath! My other son would want wine bottles all over his and my daughter would likely want perfume bottles on hers...the way too expensive kind. What a mom you are! Good job mama Holly!

Sheila said...
