I Made One!!

I gathered vintage and new ornaments, and so many glue sticks I lost count, and sat down to make a wreath!

I had visited Meri's blog, ImagiMeri and looked at her tutorial about making wreaths with vintage ornaments.  It was a huge help!! Meri is also hosting a giveaway....give her blog a visit and see the lovely wreaths she is giving away.




I thought I had enough ornaments, but once I got started I realized I was short on medium and small ornaments...a few visits to the local Goodwill and I was good to go!

Today was our ladies group Christmas Tea.....the wreath was a gift for my girlfriend MaryAnn....I pretty sure she liked it!!

  2. Good job! Now to begin the hunt for ornaments to make one for yourself! I love, love, love looking at the one I made with Erica (Golden Egg Vintage) on our Craft-a-Palooza day!

  13. Now we really are kindred spirits as I too made Meri's wreath.

    I guess you know she's one of my "besties" in real life. :)
