Handmade Grave Wreaths

Every year since my mom's passing 20 years ago this week, I have handmade her grave wreath. And since my brother's passing last year, I have had to make another one.

While I do not necessarily like making these wreaths, I feel closer to my mom and brother by handmaking them.

Not "designer grade" but definitely from my heart.

Your wreaths are lovely and the love and sentiment behind them is wonderful.

Beautiful. You can see personality and love in them.

My dad makes swags every year for 6 graves. And I'm the bow maker. Purchased wreaths might be "prettier" or "more elegant" but they just don't have the love that a homemade wreath has.

I love your wreaths. Your wreaths are a labor of love and a wonderful way of expressing the love and closeness you feel to them. I am sure they are watching you from above and just glowing!!
