It’s not too late to get crafty for the holidays!

Making this card wreath is easy! To create one like this, all you need is: a quilting hoop (this one is 18″ across), wooden clothespins, decorative ribbon, and hot glue.

I saw this cute idea on Martha Stewart’s website some time ago and wanted to create one of my own, so I went out to my local craft store and got busy!

Start by gluing the clothespins on in an alternate order so some cards can be displayed in the middle and some on the outside of the wreath. Next, cut the ribbon to your desired length and tie a bow to hang the wreath from.

It’s quick and easy; and it’s a great way to display your holiday cards!

What makes a home unique? You!

Interior design is a reflection of who you are; as a person, as a couple or as a family. We start each new project by learning about you. What are your interests? What gets you excited? What makes home feel like, “home?” For some it’s the smell of cookies baking, a child playing piano or a favorite canine waiting at the door. After listening closely, jotting notes and paying attention to small details we start distilling that information into a design concept word or phrase that describes your style.

Using this design concept phrase as our guide, we are able to select colors, finishes, and everything else for your home to ensure it is exactly what you’re looking for.

Now, no matter where you live, you can have your very own hauthaus design concept. We have special design concept packages  available on our new website. Within 48 hours we will send you list of questions, and with your answers, we will be able to come up with your special design concept. 

 This is a perfect gift for newlyweds and first time home buyers!

Of course your interests will change over time, but if we’ve done our job your home will change and grow with you; not to mention avoid being a slave to catalog fads and trends.
