Ornament Wreath

I love this wreath! I've seen several ornament wreaths on Pinterest and have seen them in the stores for a few years - and I finally thought, surely I can make one too. I followed this great tutorial. It wasn't hard - it just takes awhile!

I started with an 18-inch straw wreath. I thought this would be too small of a wreath, but when you get all the ornaments glued on, it's really a lot bigger than you might think.

I wrapped the straw wreath with silver tinsel and then started hot-gluing my plastic ornaments on. And gluing. And gluing. It does take awhile. You have to glue a bit, then hold the ornament in place until it sets up a bit before you can move on to the next one.

The end result is gorgeous though - so, it's worth it!

It's now hanging proudly in my foyer over top of my old window frames. So beautiful!

More Christmas-goodness coming soon!

Fall Wreath

Well, it feels like I jumped right from Halloween into Christmas. Before we get into the Christmas projects, I did want to share the one fall project I did - a new wreath for my foyer. I'm kind of wreath-obsessed right now, I guess. I love how this one turned out.

I was inspired by this wreath - I loved that monogram letter. I found my letter at Jo-Ann's and painted it black and then bronze over top. Very fall-ish.

The wreath itself is a grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby. I got a couple of fall leaf garlands from Hobby Lobby too, the very cheapest ones, since I only wanted them to fill in the background. I then hot-glued the gourds and flowers in place. There are a few fall picks in there too. Love it!

Okay, I think that's it for fall. Next up, I'll be sharing Christmas projects...

Sharing at these great parties...
