Deb's Christmas Creativity


A Park View, Iowa woman has a gift for sharing the Christmas Spirit.   Deb Kroeger  makes beautiful Christmas wreaths.

She is self- taught, and has a workshop in the basement of her home.

Deb glues the ornaments to a straw wreath.  Some wreaths have as many as one hundred ornaments. They are different shapes, colors, and sizes.

She uses garland to add sparkle to each one. Every wreath has an ornament with Silent Night written on it.  Kroeger says God has given her a talent, and this is her way of saying thank you.

Each wreath has a title. They are ten, fourteen, or eighteen inches in diameter.

She decorates her home with them, and uses some as centerpieces.

Deb says making these wreaths gives her a sense of peace and accomplishment.
