Here in St. Louis, Winter is definitely here! While I won’t being getting the Christmas decorations out for another week or so, I did want to ‘UPDATE’ the Wreath. That poor thing barely has any bells and what tiny presents that were holding on by a thread were faded and, well, the entire piece had seen better days.
To Hobby Lobby I went, to purchase some Wreath Swag, lol:
Wreaths were also 50% off ….. 24-inch $5.99
I used Pine-Cones from our neighbors tree but you can get them at Hobby Lobby ….. $10.00
- Jingle Bells (1-1/2 in.) ….. $2.00
- Dark Red Spray Pick ….. $2.00
- Frosted Red Spray Pick ….. $2.00
- Pearl/Silver Spray Pick ….. $2.00
- Rustic Burlap Snowflake ….. $2.00
- ..everything Christmas is 50% Off..
- Total Amount Spent ….. $5.00
If you needed to start from scratch:
I used the Hot Glue Gun to secure the Pine-Cones. For the Picks, I took them apart and re-twisted them to my liking, then twisted them onto the wreath. The Jingle Bells are looped around branches. And I used the Frosted Pick to secure the Snowflake. This took maybe an hour to do.
I’m SO happy with how this project turned out! I originally wasn’t going to display our Wreath until December, but it’s already hanging up and I’ll probably keep him out there through Winter :)
