I Made…My 2012 Holiday Wreath

Posted on Thursday, December 13th, 2012

You truly have to see this creation in person, but I’ve finally completed my holiday wreath for 2012. This year, I chose dark blue, ice blue, and silver as my colors to match my Christmas tree. Towards the bottom are two silver cherubs blowing their horns.

I purchased my materials at:

  • Michaels – wreath base and ice blue bow that I unraveled to make one large ribbon. I wrapped the ribbon around the wreath, and then made my own bow at the bottom
  • Ollie’s – all of the glittery pinecone and circle accents (just 29 cents each)
  • The Dollar Store – cherubs and silver flowers

This is only my second year making my own wreath, and I’d like to keep it a tradition.

Below is my 2011 creation.

    Your blue and silver wreath is really pretty! I love the idea of re trimming old wreaths. It’s creative, keeps them out of the landfill and no one has one just like it!
