I have decided to join Joan's from Anything Goes Here, little Christmas party. I will have a vintage Christmas related post ever Monday now until Christmas Day. Thought It'd be something a little fun and a little different for me! So, my first post for the party is another one of last year's wreath projects. This one did not sit for a year. In fact, it went straight up! I used a very basic pine wreath that'd been collecting dust in my basement for a long time and small to medium vintage ornaments that I had collected over time and had picked up for sometimes a few cents each. A snow capped Shiny Brite.... a perfect shade of aqua. And, I just love the 1950's star burst in pretty coral!
I nestled them until there was no more room to nestle and then I nestled some more. I love making these wreaths and find that it's a good way to use up the ornaments I have a hard time walking by at antique stores and flea markets and even the ones that my husband brings home for me. I also have used a few slightly broken ones... just be sure to take a extra precautions with them! The pink one with the jolly fella, himself makes me smile just looking at it! When I was happy with the look I achieved, I simply took out my favorite tool.... the hot glue gun, and glued them onto the branches. Now's the time I added my glittered and velvet leaves, a few flocked branches and silver pine cones. Finally, a curly feathered Christmas bird found a home as well. One festive wreath indeed!
