Searching for an easy xmas wreath I found one by Ruth Perry, a celtic wreath . Though the word "celtic" sometimes scare us , its really easy to make.
My first attempt was this one, without beads...

and then , when I was sure with the ds count (i was using # 8 perle cotton thread) I added beads to the chains and the rings...

MOTIF # 3 and #4.. more christmas tatting!

I have tatted this candle for a postcard xmas exchange we have in a bobbin lace group. I download this image from the web, but don´t remember the author. I like the colours combination and the effect of the half wreath in the bottom.

And also I sent my partner this lovely snowflake in white, tatted from the book TATTED SNOWFLAKES by Vida Sunderman.
This book have a lot of nice snowflakes to tat for next xmas celebration.
In both cases I used dmc pearl cotton # 8.
