It’s the week before Christmas. Let’s be real, it’s pathetic that I haven’t had a Christmas wreath on my door in the four years that I have been married, but it’s even more pathetic that I finally decided to make one now the week before Christmas. So instead of doing a typical Christmas wreath, I decided to make it a “winter” wreath so that I could keep it up through January.
Here are the Supplies:
1. Wreath form. You can use any kind and size you want.
2. Ornaments. I went with two different sizes and stuck with silver and blue to make it like ice-ish. (ice=winter…right?)
3. Tinsel Garland
4. Jingle Bells. I got ones that were smaller than the smallest ornaments
5. Silver bead garland
6. Hot glue. Lots and lots of hot glue.
Start by wrapping the tinsel around the wreath form.
Then start adding your ornaments There really is no specific formula to putting them on. Just eye it.
All the ornaments are on.
Then drape the bead garland around the ornaments. Attach with glue.
Last I added the bells and hung it on my door.
I am really happy with the end result and won’t feel bad if I leave it up through January….and maybe February….March? Who knows. It’s been known to happen 🙂
