My first attempt at a wreath

I'm getting so excited for Christmas! I've told myself that I'm going to try to take on all those little crafts that I've been putting off, seeing as this will probably be my last Christmas staying at home full time. I need to take advantage of the opportunity! (don't hold your breath though - we all know what my follow through is like lately)   :)

Anyway, I was scrounging through our (very small amount of) Christmas decorations and I came across this cheap wreath I picked up at Walmart last year for $2.

Not much too look at. So I went to Micheals last weekend during their Thanksgiving sale and picked up some little ornament thingies for half off.  I think I spent maybe $4.

I'm usually into much more traditional Christmas decor, but this year I was really drawn to all things shiny and sparkly.

I think that the final result came out decent enough for my first time.

See? Shiny and sparkly! :) I even included a little drum for my Little Drummer Boy ♥

I hope everyone else is getting the warm fuzzies for Christmas!
  Really looking forward to reading all the Christmas posts!

'til next time...


  1. It's beautiful. Makes me want to make one too, I have a bunch of leftover Christmas ornaments from a pine cone basket gift I gave a few years ago.

  2. Thank you so much Misty! You should throw one together! If you do - you should put up pics on your blog so we can all see :D


Your comments simply make my day!
Thanks so much for stopping by - hope to see you again!
