I've Been Creating Things...

And ALL of the things I created are in this one post.

(Professional bloggers, avert thy precious eyes. I clearly do not know what I am doing.)


My new wreath is sitting in a chair. (the chair had the best light, plus the chair is white)

Here it is by the back door, with too much light from behind....

and on the mantle....


I used a wire wreath form and lots and lots and lots of hot glue. Most of the ornaments are "shatterproof" and were on sale.

I also made a second, smaller wreath -


Cute, huh? I am going to take these to my booth and set up for Christmas.

Then I washed and dried the new 5 for $5 flour sack towels I found at Wal-Mart.

I stitched this on one of them....



But have decided I need a more "substantial" towel or material for embroidery.

I also added ruffles to one...



Fun, Fun! Have a great weekend!

Love the colors you used in your wreaths. What did you use to hold the wreath together? They look wonderful.

hey trish, just found your blog thru funkyjunks link up...I made a wreath very similar to this last year...but the balls all fell off when I put it outside my front door! Did you put yours outside and what did you use to adhere the balls?
So so cute, thanks for sharing!!

Hi Trish, I think you need to edit your post and tell us HOW you made the wreath? I am guessing hot glue on a styrofoam form??? It is very pretty!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Doh! I guess I should have read all the comments before asking the HOW to question.

I love your wreath! I've always wanted to make one but I never think of it until December...when there's never enough time!

You have the cutest ideas!

Love your creations. I tried making a wreath like yours and I broke more ornaments than I put on it! LOL. Now I know to use the unbreakable ones!

Love the colors in yours, very pretty.
Sweet dish towels too.
