1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Glass ornament wreath on: December 14, 2006 09:19:10 AM
I would use some really hardcore craft/multipurpose glue for metal and glass (I used hot glue instead because I was working inside and doing a LOT of gluing and didn't want to breathe in fumes), but I'm done with the big glass balls anyway 'cause they break so easily. Plastic would be your best bet, especially if you could find the pre-wired balls they use in flower arrangements and whatnot. They would make life soooo much easier (Someone tell me if you know where to find any!)

The really small balls (like 3/4 in or so) work REALLY well as an alternative and you can just string their metal rings on a wire after gluing with decent glue. I can dig out a picture of the smaller wreath too to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

You could just write on glass (clear balls would be really cool) or plastic ornaments with permanent ink. I wish I had a picture of what I'm thinking of. Just kind of hap hazardly all over them.  For me handwriting is very personal and romantic. I LOVE how my fiance writes. It's scraggly and awful and shows his personality and sense of humor.

Anyway, the written messages are a great idea! Thanks, I'm putting some on my to do list.

Sorry to bump this, but I had to add more words of wisdom from my own (bad) experience!

I made this wreath last Christmas and a few as gifts. Don't use hot glue to glue the metal tops on, not matter how secure it seems! AND As pretty and seemless as they are, the glass ornaments are extremely delicate and impractical. Stupid stupid me. Oh and if they get a little wet (say...outside handing on your door), the colored coating peels off like crazy.

Oh well. Just thought I'd warn folks! Happy Holidays.

Cute cute! Yay for Ska! Gotta love band t-shirts, but they never fit exactly right. Hmmm... what do you wear for erm...support underneath that? I hate dancing and sweating in a strapless bra! I need to figure out how to sew in a little shelf bra I suppose...

Tookie - The Planet Smashers (awesome live) are from Canada (they're from Quebec though) they're playing Warped Canada this summer.

I'm going to see my fav Voodoo Glow Skulls w/ Big D on Wednesday!
