Week #6--DIY--Wreath for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHEER!

This week's DIY comes from my middle daughter. She was such a busy ELF yesterday!  Instead of  buying gifts for her team, she chose a little secret "Operation Cheer," as she called it.

Her team arrived at work this morning to a beautiful wreath in each of their cubicles or on their doors. She left a sticky note with an anonymous "Merry Christmas" on their desks. She made a beautiful Tartan bow by following a U-Tube video http://tidbitsandtwine.com/diy-inexpensive-fall-wreath-and-fancy-bow/---these being the first bows she has ever made, and attached one to every wreath.

Awesome touch........and such a thoughtful gift.






ITEMS PURCHASED-

1. 12" Tabletop wreaths from Trader Joes $5.99 each
2.  Large spool of Tartan Ribbon  (Shops at Baileywick)- $25.99
     --she has TONS of ribbon left for other projects!!
3. Command hooks (Walmart) 6 for $8.88

TOTAL EXPENSE FOR 5 GIFTS--$10.00 each


Cost of seeing her teams faces as they walked in to work this morning---PRICELESS!
This is a perfect example, that it is not "how much" the gift costs, it is the thought behind the
gift that warms our hearts!

Thank you to my sweet daughter for sharing her DIY with us today!

P.S. While her team members were trying to guess who had given them such a lovely surprise, one lone "blonde hair" was found on a wreath........guess she's the only blonde in the office! :)

Have a wonderful day!

ENJOY!
