    Christmas Wreaths, Jingle Bell lalalalalal

    I thought I would share this wreath with you. I had bought this huge wreath from a friend of mine who had a flower shop. I have had it for 2 years, I think. I knew I would need lots of picks to decorate it and I had no intention of spending so much money lol.....so, like I always do, I wished upon a star.

    Lo and behold, I got my wish finally. I thought about it enough lol. Here it is hanging on the front door. The sun was a bit bright in the back, so I backed up to a tree at a distance and crept a bit closer twice. I think I captured it. It has berry picks and leaves, cranapples, pine cones and lots of the ornament balls.

    I will be showing a wreath in a pot soon and small tree decorated the same way so stay tuned.
    I am doing a technique on the wreath in a pot. You spray it first with a gold glitter, about three coats and then spray with a crackle to crackle it....it started to rain, so I had to stop.

    I have a huge box that I spray in and I wear a painter's mask for protection from the fumes and I close the box until it 's time for the second or third coat.

    I to was given a large wreath several years ago, have not done anything to it yet. Some of the fake fruit have fallen off, time to get out the glue gun. But your wreath has given me a few ideas. THANKS!

    The ornament balls are plastic and come with a long wire, so you can slip it through and twist around the wreath. I did the same with the greenery. I also put more of the ornaments today so it is even fuller lol.

    Second Project, Wreath in Vase

    I had this old plastic Vase? Grecian style. This comes with a tube to hold a wreath, cemented into the center. I sprayed the vase with gold spray and then with the crackle to give it the aged crackled look. This is a kit of basecoat and crackle (two cans)

    I had a little terra cotta bunny so I let him join the foray.
    I then wound some greenery around the wreath and did the same decoration I did on the larger wreath. I don't know where I will put the vase yet.

    The bunny, I will paint some stuff on later...I have a skinny tree to do for the kitchen, maybe tomorrow.
