Wreath Making

Last year, I bought a basket full of red glass ornaments. They had called out to me. When I got them home, I stared at them for a while, but no bright ideas came to me. So, up in the attic they went. When pulling all the Christmas decorations out, I spotted the ornaments. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them.

Instead my wreath looks like this.

Go ahead. Say it. It’s a hot mess. Either it needs more ornaments or it needs to be thrown in the trash. I haven’t decided which.

Unwilling to give up on a wreath idea completely, I pulled out the yarn strands and came up with this.

The bells were crocheted by my MIL a few years ago. She made them to be ornaments, but I don’t think she’ll mind.

Elly was excited over the wreath too and asked to be the one to hang it up.

  1. OMgosh when did Elly get so big! Holy Cow, she will be dating soon *grin*, Love your wreaths! I’m finally trying to get back into creating.
    Hope you are having a grand Holiday season with your family.

  2. Good start, just needs more. Also, I think the silver caps should be taken off, that takes away from the red. Then when you add the bulbs, glue that side down inbetween the ornaments ready there.
