Christmas Wreaths

It’s Christmas time! I love creating new little projects and decorating my home. I went to the local craft store.They were having a big sale on almost everything in the store! They had 24″ wreaths that were only $3 each! Wow, at that price  I grabbed a bunch! I picked up some new balls, ribbons of all sizes, and some wild picks. I was like a kid in a candy store!

Last year I had bought online a set of 3 Christmas boxes that light up. They were a lot smaller than I had thought.( Next time I will be sure to read the dimensions more carefully). So  I was thinking of a big display for my table using one of the boxes. The boxes have white plastic mesh around them,and they light up. So, I started with one of my wreaths.

I put some of the larger white picks around the top of the bow on the gift box. Then I took another large pick and tore it apart to make smaller ones that would go on the wreath. I gathered up my ribbons and picks for the project. Believe it or not, I had put the whole thing put together, then changed my mind, took it all apart, and sprayed the wreath with snow. It looks more cohesive with the box.

You can see the gift box with the ribbon in the background.I started adding the balls, drums and picks around the wreath, and matched the gift box with same. This is the result:

Do you like what I created? I hope so because here are two more.

This one was done with the red sparkly mesh, cut into strips, and tied around a wire wreath. Add some red balls, a belt with a gold metallic buckle. I painted the letters white, then sprinkled some glitter on them.

Here is another one  I made for the front door..

Wrap and pinch with burlap ribbon, add some greenery picks and berries. I then added some poinsettias and a sign I had made last year for something else.

A little disclosure…after I did my craft shopping…I came home to a flooded laundry room..again my water heaters hose broke. This time the other one…what a mess. So needless to say, I had all this nervous energy to create these wreaths over the long holiday weekend.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend….and are ready for the Christmas Season!!!!

If you created any Christmas crafts…I would love to see them and post!

Thank you for looking!!

    1. That was so easy to make. Did you see that package of red mesh ribbon in the pic? I picked up the red and white mesh at the dollar store.Another easy to make project. If you need any help with any of them…I’d be happy to help!

  1. Understand about the light boxes. I always forget the dimensions or I estimate incorrectly so they are too big or too little. Cute idea though!
