Hello All!

I've posted epic transformations of whole rooms up until this point... I thought I should start to post some of my more tame crafts.


Here is a wreath that I just finished for Christmas.  I am going to hang it above the fireplace in my craft room for the holiday season and I am considering making another smaller one to hang in the window.

This tore up my fingers.  The materials are bunches of imitation grapes, a few sphere ornaments, floral wire, and one fake wreath.

First I strongly compressed the wreath into itself so nothing was sticking out haphazardly.  Then I wrapped it in green floral wire to hold the "branches" down.  Then I spent hours shoving singular "grape" by "grape" into the wreath and twisting it up to anchor it on the back. 

I would be able to say I didn't use any glue if I hadn't, at the eleventh hour of my project, gotten fed up with one of the silver ornaments that kept falling off.

All except for 3 of the larger ornaments are wired in to the wreath.

Thanks for looking!

Give yourself a pat on the back for having that much patience.  It's gorgeous.  I never would have thought of using the small grapes and berries instead of tiny ornaments, that probably made it a little easier and more cost effective.

That is awesome!  I love it.  I saw something similar with small baubles and want to make it.
