Rustic, Gold, Glitter Wreath - DIY

So I am really excited to share my first DIY of the holiday season! 1.) Because Christmas is right around the corner and it's Hugo's first Christmas (YAAY) and 2.) because I have a mild obsession with wreaths and glitteerrr. Combine all of these things, and woah... just woah. 

My husband and I decided that we are pretty much going to DIY as much as we can for our holiday decorations because our budget, truthfully, is limited this Christmas since I've been on maternity leave. No complaints here because I love projects and it also forces me to get some creative juices flowing. It's also a great way to unwind during my "mommy time" from 6-10 p.m. 

One thing that is a major budget killer are holiday wreaths. Holy expensive! I am also extremely picky about wreaths. There are so many in stores that are super cheap looking, cheesy, thin, and just.. blek. I like my wreaths full, and gorgeous! I also know that I can achieve that, half of the time, on my own and for way less. 

This year, I wanted to do a wreath that was gold, glittery, and rustic looking. So I got to looking for inspiration. 

Hugo: One Month Old

Baby stories

My dearest little Hugo,

Today you are officially a month old and it's killing your mama! I can't tell you how many times I sat in your nursery, doing your overnight bottles, and tearing up because you are getting so big! And, yes, dad and I are excited for all of the fun things to come as you grow but some days, I would love for you to stay as little as you are right now.

This has been a big month for you little one! We've all been learning from each other, having fun, and experiencing lots.
