Christmas Wreath 2010
Maybe it should be my tradition to make a new wreath every year. I find it to be a super fun craft and very rewarding thus far. Here's how:
I found a Styrofoam wreath at Michael's craft store and covered it in ribbon just to hide the ugly white.
This is my favorite. I gathered pecans from a local pecan tree grove that I take my daily walks to. It was great to get some exercise, find some free treasures, and save money on expensive pecans. I then painted them using acrylic paint and then coated them with glossy Mod Podge to give them a shine. Finally I glued them on with a hot--glue gun ,which seemed like an eternity, and then....
Add a ribbon and then hang. This old house has a little sass this year and I love it.
