Merry and Bright



I need to thank IDEAS and Razzle Dazzle Crafting for the inspiration for this wreath. At my house we are poor.


I mean that in a non "poor me" sort of way because my husband works two jobs so that I can be home with the wee one. This is the first Christmas in our four years of marriage that we have been able to decorate a little bit and have a tree. I love BRIGHT colors and started collecting ornaments and such a few years ago and have been waiting to be able to put it all together. I was able to get this tree because of the post Christmas sales last year. I wish you could see the tree in all of it's glory, but the bright pinks, greens, and blues are so fun.

I am so thrilled with how MERRY AND BRIGHT my home is. It feels like the Christmas season. This wreath was super and cheap and easy. I used bright colored scrapbook paper and actually glued it on an old straw wreath of all things to make it more modern. Bright colors are not super traditional, but I am loving the unique look.

  2. I love, love, love your wreath!! I wish I had one just like it. There is a ribbon outlet not too far away from me, and you've inspired me to make a trip so I can try to make this wreath. Unfortunately, I think it will be after the holidays by the time I get to make it, but hey, at least I'll have it for next year! I love all of the bright colors that you used on your wreath and on your tree. You did a lovely job decorating.

  5. Your wreath is adorable dear Kasha. Each and every ribbon glows with the love you have patiently adored it with.

    Charlie Brown trees are the very best IMHO and I'm sure yours is brimming with the joy of the season.

    A very Merry Christmas to you and your family Kasha.
