In about, mmm, October I think, I made this wreath. I found all the different pieces for it at the thrift store, and the total cost was under $8. Can't get much better than that!
Here's what I started with:
Here's a basic wreath with some pinecones.
First, I took the red bow off the wreath and then sprayed a metallic spray that I talked about here onto the wreath, spraying a little extra on the pinecones.
Next, I wrapped the silver ribbon around it, and used my hot glue gun to glue the ornaments onto the wreath. And Voile! in about 10 minutes, I have a wreath for Christmas!
|This is our fat little tree! I read about a trick with the lights, where weaving the lights in toward the trunk and then out to the ends of the branches will make the tree "glow." |
We tried it, and really love it.
And this is our center ornament this year, the one that my parents gave to Joe and I last year on our first Christmas together. *Awwwwwwww!*
