Christmas advent event - day 16

Good morning! I had such a great day yesterday! In the morning I went to a big(ger) city with my boyfriend and a couple of friends to do some Christmas shopping and in the afternoon, when we got back, my bf and I put our Christmas tree up. We even bought some new (more traditional looking) tree decorations and I like them a lot. We also found some star shaped lights that we put on the wall above the nativity scene we created. If I remember, I will take some pictures to show them to you. :)

For now, I can show you the picture of a Christmas wreath that my sweetie made for us to keep on the kitchen table ...

Isn't it pretty? I know it's not shiny, full of decorations etc., but he/we wanted it to be natural and more "simple".

I made a wreath too, but mine is a little bit more untraditional. I wanted to make something a bit different for Christmas advent event that we have going on CRPI blog so I decided to make a wreath - this is the first wreath I've ever made if I may add. lol  Before I show you my wreath I want to remind you that you can still leave your info with Mr. Linky on ALL blog posts for the Christmas advent event if you want a chance to win some goodies from our sponsors. Today you can win 5 digi images from Teddy Bo. :)

And now really to my wreath. Here's the picture of it ...

I used some old newspaper to make a base for my wreath and then secured it with sticky tape. Then I wrapped around this gorgeous satin ribbon from Crafty ribbons. On the right side I added some flowers that I made from buttons, gold mesh and fabric and some pine branch and leaves die cuts that are made from white cardstock. On the other side I used this fab bead string, which is also from Crafty ribbons.

I would like to enter my wreath to the following challenges:
Live and love crafts: Anything but a card
Dl Art: Linky party - Anything goes
