Baby Needs Bling!

...PUT DOWN THE GLUE GUN...

My home has been needing a wreath update for a long time.  I've looked and looked at different ideas and this year I'm drawn to the bright colors - kinda reminds me of an Elf Shop or something!  Anywee-Kadie had the same idea so we went supply shopping yesterday and NOW...may I present to you my latest creation...


This wreath is big, too - it takes up almost the whole width of my door!  My glue gun is smokin'!!!  This worked up really fast, though, and can I just say how much I love glue guns?! I DO think my happy wreathy needs some spray glitter bling, though.  Baby needs BLING!  It needs to sparkle more {because Christmas is sparkly!} and I'm just not getting enough sparkle vibe.  Until then, though, it's going to hang pretty on my door and blast anyone who comes over with a bright, cheery, Christmas welcome!  {It's even got jingle bells!!! gaspity gasp!} 




You start with a bunch of random junk and just start gluing away.  Start with the biggest ornaments, arrange them symmetrically, and fill in the gaps.  You can do it under an hour!  My wreath & most ornaments came from Hobby Lobby and the other ornaments came from a multi-pack at Sam's Club.

Oh, I love, love, LOVE it!! If only I had a second or two to craft before Christmas- maybe I'll find the time. Now if there were only dollar stores in Hawaii....

love it friend! You wanna make me one too? I have no supplies, and don't have the heart or time to try and find things online to buy. Curses living in this small town! Ha ha. But seriously, I would pay you to do one for me. Love all the fun colors. Ü
