Ornament Wreath

Got to apologize that it has taken me forever to blog lately. Have you ever felt like you just don't want to blog at all and all you wanna do is look at other peoples blogs. Then you wonder why they aren't updating their blog. Haha. So, ok I will do it. I have 3 new ones. This one, Micah's first haircut and then Caitlyns thanksgiving one. Enjoy!

I have been in a craftsy mood lately and being in the holiday season doesn't help at all. Also hanging out with my Uber Crafty Girl, Kelly really doesn't help. :o) But I love it. Daniel just laughs and rolls his eyes when he sees me crafting or I show him a new thing I made. But I made him fess up that he really does like it when I am all domestic and craftsy.

My new project was an ornament wreath. I wanted to make a Christmas wreath with the pine, pinecones, and berries. But I just couldnt imagine anything cute up that wouldnt look cheesy. So after mentioning an ornamental wreath and Kelly giving me some pointers... here is how it turned out.
what you need: LOTS of ornaments (I used shatterproof ones), a wire hanger, festive ribbon, glue gun, wire(not pictured) and a must have... coffee.

Start stringing the ornaments on.
I started glueing the ornaments to each other to hold it's shape and spot on the wreath.
ALmost done... need to start filling in the holes and hot gluing with more ornaments
Finished project!!!!

NEXT: Feather Christmas Trees!!!! You can get a sneak peek at what they look like on my Uber Crafty Friend, Kelly's site.
