UPDATE - I reloaded the last picture, not sure why it was so out of focus....Computers!
One wasn't enough was it (Holiday DIY Wreath Part 1)?????
Because one totally fun and easy DIY Christmas wreath wasn't enough...I went out and made another!!! I was stumbling around the amazing bloggie-land and found a great design/craft blog and then before you know it I knew the theme to this years holiday decor. Our house is a silver, vintage gold and cream dream (with touches of red)! (ha! cream dream...sounds so naughty!) hehe, alas here is the tutorial I followed for my basic design!
The goods you'll need: Glue Gun, lots of glue sticks, vintage books (try and find some with thinner pages, I wish my weren't so thick, I might even remake if can find one! It took only one book, and I picked mine up from the local Goodwill for under 2 bucks). Also a wreath form (I like the green wreath I had from the first wreath better, it was perfectly round, vs this one which was flat on the back - live and learn!) and a couple hours of time.
Rip your pages out.
Fold then up, ripped edge out - more character!
Glue other end together to secure your ruffle.
Repeat, all the way around.
Flip it over, this is your base layer
Voila!!! I added, two poinsettia like felt flowers I made to make it a little more Christmas-y-festive.
[Flowers - I cut out 4 of the same shape flower out of red felt, layered two and
then sewed read and clear seed beads to the center and pined them in place]
Tomorrow I will show the tree, and all the silver/gold/cream touches I added to the living room to help bring the decor theme together (on the cheap!) Do you guys stick to a theme? Or is it all or nothing? I love decorating!!! :)
