We've Been Busy

Last week, I came across this website and thought it would be fun to make one of these wreaths. (I hate when that happens because then I become obsessed and must finish the latest project while all the other things I need to do, mainly clean, go by the wayside.)

When the girls were not busy doing this,


They were busy doing this...

hot gluing the tops onto the ornaments. (This is a must do!)


We took a hanger and twisted it into a circular shape. This is not super easy and I would suggest that you have a tool to twist the ends of the circle together when you are finished threading the ornaments.


In the works....


The finished wreath hanging in my front window. I love it and the colors make me happy every time I see it!


I've also finished a scarf, a garland and some killer photo ornaments. Check back soon for the pics!

Go here for other ornament wreath pics.

I am so jealous! I wanted so badly to make one of those but I also get distracted by new projects. I'm sitting next to one that I'm only a third of the way done with. Maybe I'll find some ornaments on sale after Christmas....

Oh, you so totally ROCK! I'm going to have to give those ornaments a try next year. I have done some Christmas crafting this year too. Feel free to take a peek (in your spare time). I love your ideas.

Just after Halloween next year, you should do a count down and link o your awesome Christmas crafts. Because, some of us will not remember, then will just be in awe again of your crafting :-)

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas.
