We're back from our holiday out west in Edmonton to visit with the kids and grandkids. What a wonderful time we had, but now I need to get back to work. :)
|How To Make A Winter Wreath|
A few weeks back, I saw karianne from Thistlewood Farms post about a winter wreath she made. I absolutely loved it and had to make one for myself. Isn't it gorgeous?
My husband had a couple pieces of hosing that had holes in them from our swimming pool barracuda. He's getting really good at not throwing things out...he actually asked me if I could use it for anything! Smart man. I cut one of them to size and glued it into a wreath form. If I had been thinking properly, I would have painted the form then, but I was caught up in watching the DVD of '24'. Kiefer Sutherland is mesmerizing...
I had collected a variety of sticks off shrubs on our property and started gluing them on the 'wreath'.
I love how some of them still have the berries attached.
When I had enough twigs attached, I spray painted the whole thing white and sprinkled with silver glitter.
I added tiny mirror squares, small styrofoam balls, crystals, the letter 'B' and a silver & white bird, all products I had on hand.
And here it is hanging.
I love the white on the blue door. And it all started with a piece of busted hose.
Did you make anything for your door after the Christmas decorations came down? Do you hibernate for the winter season or jet away to exotic locations?
