I JUST finished my Christmas wreath for my door.  What can I say, inspiration struck me.  I designed it in my head right as I was trying to fall asleep one night this past week.  Isn't that how it always work?  Anywho, it was supremely easy to make and really didn't require much to do.

Here is the finished product:


And here are the shots of it coming together:

Here are all the components that went into the wreath.  It took a poinsettia stem, two super cool ornaments that I got at JoAnn's, and some berry picks.  Not shown is my glue gun, scissors and wire.  I hot glued on the ornaments to start with and then secured each with a couple pieces of wire on each end.


And here it is with the berry picks put in, and a couple of the leaves from the poinsettia stem that I glued in.  Voila!  Super easy and fast wreath!



Don't worry, the wreath isn't currently residing on my door.  It was just up for picture taking sake.  It will go up officially after Thanksgiving!  Yay!

Thanks for looking!

I love this, it's got a lovely rustic country feel to it. I'm on the look out for wreath base like that, if anyone knows where to get one in the UK I'd much appreciate it.

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness
