i did it!!!!

I finally made my own wreath! I have some wooden Christmas ornaments that I just love. Unfortunately this year we didn't have room for them on the tree. (left out the 2 bottom rows of branches to thwart the cats climbing up) So I wanted to figure out something else to do with my cute cute ornaments. While I didn't use them all, I was able to use 3 of my Santa's to make my own wreath. It was SO simple, MUCH easier than I thought! I used a small grapevine wreath as the base, got some silk flowers on sale at Hobby Lobby, and got some really pretty glittery wired ribbon, also on sale. Yay! I really wanted a bow out of the ribbon but again, I have never made one so I was a bit intimidated. That is until I came across this site. Talk about easy cheesy!!! Props to Meghan for making it look so darn easy! So in about 5 minutes I had my bow made and ribbon wrapped, and about 10 minutes later I had my wreath done! It's now adorning my door and looking too cute for words! Here are a few pics of my first ever handmade Christmas wreath!
