My other project....


Everyone was doing these wreaths during the holidays. I wanted to but I just didn't have the time. So first off, I ran a line of glue around the top where that little doo hickey hanger thing is....


Then Jake opened up a wire clothes hanger for me...he's so sweet. He just does whatever I ask him to do! And I started threading the ornaments onto the wire hanger. I bought these ornaments from Lowe's after Christmas when they were something like 60% off.


I really love the rich, deep browns and golds. I think this will look pretty sharp in my living room next Christmas where I do my gold tree.

Then I bought these beautiful ribbons from Michaels....after Christmas and they too were on sale.........2 for a buck!

Jake formed 2 hooks on each side and then just hooked them together. I have draped this ribbon on it but haven't really decided how I'll inter twine it yet...also, apologies for the really bad picture but I took it in my craft room on a gloomy day. Will get a better picture by Christmas :)

later............

I think I'm going to 'do' one for next year, it's so pretty! The balls are so cheap in thrifts or sales and it's easy to make up too! Thanks!

Mom gave me the Christmas balls she used on their tree when first married.. 56 years ago...So I tied them on a green wreath so could enjoy them. It always hangs in the basement for our christmas gatherings..not sure if you noticed it.love sis..
