Old Truck Christmas Wreath Craft #TigerStrypesBlog #Winter #Christmas #Craft I always see the Old Red Truck wreaths for sale during Christmastime, and have wanted one for years.  The cost though, is just not something I’m willing to pay.  Some of them go upwards of $80 to $100.  Sorry, I have gifts to buy, and […]

Create Some Jumbo Yard Flowers I saw something like this on HGTV and thought it would be so fun to do in my yard.  During the Fall season, the oak trees lose all of their leaves and the pine trees don’t really look very bright.  Having something in our yard with a pop of color, that will look great when snow is falling was something […]
