This is my first attempt at wreath making of any kind and let me tell you guys, I think I've found a new love! I don't have a lot of little bitty pieces to stick in between the ornaments, so I'm glad that I wrapped the tinsel garland around the form since it peeks through here and there.
The bulbs with the fluffy stuff inside are old flash bulbs that my Grandparents gave me. I knew they would come in handy one day! They worked perfectly for this project.
This guy is my favorite vintage Christmas find so far so he totally had to take center stage. Ornament wreath making is going to go up there with my most favorite crafts. It was so dang fun, I need to make more!
I'm pretty stinking proud of this thing if you couldn't tell. Everything but the form and the hot glue came from estate sales or thrift shops. It's hanging up in my sun room until it's time to get the Christmas decorations up. It's going to be really hard to not to decorate early!
What do you guys think? Are you inspired to make your own? Do you have any wreath making tips or tricks you would like to share?
Thanks for all the encouragement guys! You're the best! Those of you that are nervous - Melissa! - you totally have to take the leap! The end product is worth it!
I'm joining the parties at Sir Thrift A Lot, Remnant, Mod Vintage Life, The Thrifty Groove, A Living Space, Ivy And Elephants, The Cottage Market, We Call It Junkin' and Apron Thrift Girl. Have a great week everyone!
