Amid all the Christmas knitting I'm trying to get done, I got the crafty bug. I was in Pier 1 and saw this fantastic wreath made of green tinsel with decorated ornaments. I had it in my hands until I saw the price -- no way was I going to spend that much on something I could turn into a fun family project. Here's how ours turned out:
Festive and colorful, right? Here's what we used:
- Wire wreath frame
- 30' tinsel
- Various ornaments & jingle bells
- Floral wire
- Hot glue gun
I started by wrapping the entire wreath frame with the tinsel. I secured it by tying it to the frame. Next, I used the floral wire to thread the ornaments and jingle bells together in groups of three. I attached in wire to the wreath frame, twisting it a bunch of times to make sure it really stayed on there. The ornaments had a mind of their own so I used a hot glue gun to keep them close together. The project cost me approximately $20 and was great fun for all of us!
I had a PartyLite party this fall and had a fantastic host credit. Lots of yummy smells and beautiful candle holders were purchased for virtually nothing! To tie the room together, I pulled out the Symmetry Trio and Cleary Creative Votive Holder.
I just love these candle holders! They are perfect for those who love seasonal decor and I love that I can customize them. For these, I used some floral picks that I cut and Loreli helped me arrange. I think it really brightens up our kitchen.
Now it's back to knitting! =)
