Kistchmas Wreath!



I am so excited with how this project turned out that I can't even wait until tomorrow to take a pretty natural light photo! I have been talking about making a wreath like this, inspired by Betty Crafter's beauties, since the middle of November and I finally sat down to do it today.


My dining room table has turned into my work station, even though I have that whole craft room.


All my supplies. over prepared as usual. i've been collecting vintage baubles every chance I get.

I've been getting a lot of mileage out of my hot glue gun lately.

I get this far and run out of tinsel! that starts a 3 store journey, and I end up with a different kind and every place was PACKED because it is almost Christmas. So I'm really grumpy when I get back.


My little helpers, right at my feet as usual. Priscilla loves that sweater.

After much agonizing here is my wreath! I love it! It is hanging over the mantle, directly in front of me now. There are definitely some things I will differently if (when) I make another one. But it is still pretty gorgeous.
I also finished wrapping my presents today and bought travis' stocking stuff and cleaned our room and the craft room since I'm hosting a little bit of the Christmas festivities on Sunday. I'm working the next two days, so I bet they will go by in a blur!

  1. I love how the wreath came out, you should make a miniature one with smaller ornaments! I'm terrible with finishing craft projects or I'd attempt to make one too.
