When I did the Pinterest link up a little while ago, I mentioned that I was going to make a rag wreath with some Christmas material I found. I made the wreath. It looks like a pom-pom for a cheer squad. That's what happens when you pick green, white, red and black.
I really wanted something fun for a wreath and found this on pinterest.
To which I bought these supplies (the orange snow fence is NOT required for this project. ha!):
I dug out the glue gun.
Dusted off the glue sticks.
And began to create my wreath.
Foam wreath form: $2.45 (I had a coupon to save 40%)
Ornaments: $35 (ouch)
Glue gun & sticks: free (already owned)
*wait to do this AFTER the holiday season and get the ornaments on sale. That was my downfall. While I bought a "bonus pack" of that included 42 ornaments of various sizes and colors, I needed 2. They cost me $12 each, and that was on sale.
*I also used miniature ornaments, and needed 3 packs of 24...costing $11 total. These mini ornaments filled in the little spaces.
*It really did go quickly....an afternoon, tops.
*The link above gives you step by step instructions--and they were spot on.
I love it.
