The girls in our homeschool co-op homemaking class made wreaths in December.
We kept it pretty simple by purchasing artificial pine wire wreaths to decorate. I love the wire because it's so easy to hang up.
All kinds of decorations were available to the girls in the homemaking class. We had artificial gold and red poinsettias, ribbon, red bows, gold bows, pine cones, bells, and tiny ornaments.
We used glue guns to attach the decor onto the wreath. We were careful with the glue guns, going over safety before we started. We kept them on paper plates when not in use and even kept a bowl of ice water on the table in case of burns.
The girls had a blast making Christmas wreaths. Each one was unique and beautiful.
Over the years, my children and I have made many wreaths at Christmas time. Some we have given as Christmas gifts and others still hang on our wall.
A Christmas wreath says, "Welcome!" to all visitors and adds a festive touch to any home.
Making and hanging wreaths is a special part of our Christmas. It is a tradition we enjoy!
God's Girls 105: Homemaking
I like to use Christmas as a time to teach homemaking skills to my daughters. We build memories at the same time!
If you would like to study homemaking with your teenage daughters and get high school credit at the same time, God's Girls 105: Homemaking will be a great addition to your homeschool.
I wrote this for my daughters, along with a Bible study on homemaking, and each of my four daughters completed this course. We made so many special memories cooking, sewing, crafting, making jam, gardening, decorating, reading amazing books, and digging into God's Word.
Jesus Fill My Heart & Home Bible Study delves into what the Bible says about abiding, or making our home in Jesus, and then allowing His Presence to fill our homes. We look at Jesus and learn from Him. For example, we see how he decorates Heaven and we apply those principles to interior design. We learn to decorate with color, fill our lives with the Word of God, create a nurturing environment in our homes, set goals, live by priorities, make planes, set a proper table, have a daily quiet time, make birthdays special, make holidays festive, live by a realistic schedule, train children to help with chores, decorate with a focal point, fill our lives with worship, show hospitality with confidence, organize our homes, use file folders creatively and get rid of clutter.
We don't just want to be godly homemakers, we want to train our daughters to excel at the art of homemaking, too. God's Girls 105: Homemaking, a one-credit high school course, is one of my favorite classes.. Young women will read living books, complete the Jesus, Fill My Heart & Home Bible Study, and complete a wide variety of assignments from sewing, crafts, make-up, fashion, cooking, baking, home decorating, wrapping presents, shopping, gardening, canning, making candy, laundry, hostessing, and so much more. This course is a blast at home with Mom or in a co-op setting! Learn more here.
From our home to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
