It’s the most WONDERFUL time of the year!!! Don’t you all think?! As I was unpacking all of my Christmas decorations, I came across a few handmade decor items that I had created the last Holiday that I wanted to share! Hope you all don’t mind that I do not have step by step directions on how to make these little beauties, but hey, who knows…maybe I’ll recreate these sometime this Season!
Awe, I am still in love with these little cuties! I had so much fun making them too! If you couldn’t tell by now, I LOVE making string art! Sure it is a tedious and sometimes painful process, but nothing beats the end result! I have these hanging in my Kitchen so I get to see them and enjoy them often. Oh, and the little pom-poms were the perfect touch on these three!
For the “string of lights” on the Christmas tree, I hot glued sparkly sequins to it to add that sense of glow. If any of you are interested in how to make these, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on the post and I would gladly help you!
And now for my Christmas wreath! Okay, is it just me or does all of the stores charge an arm and a leg for their pre-made wreathes?! It is just NUTS how much they cost…I’ve seen some pushing a hundred bucks! That’s just crazy talk!!! Especially when you can make your own, one-of-a-kind, customized and dare I say GORGEOUS wreath for between $25-$40. I got all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby for this gem and a very simple list I may add. Just pick up one of their inexpensive template wreaths, a box of glitter snowflakes in the color of your choice (for the base of the wreath) and chose between 6-10 fancier ornaments to layer on top. Hobby Lobby always (or seems to be always) has their Holiday decor priced at 40-50% off, so you can splurge on those more expensive ornaments that are so worth it in the end result. Hot glue those puppies on as you please and you have a gorgeous wreath ready for hanging!
Just a little tip, make sure you lay your ornaments out before gluing down and take a step back to look at it. You want to make sure that it all is aesthetically pleasing before you make it permanent 🙂
I just did a HUGE craft store shopping trip and stocked up on a bunch of Christmas goodies, so get ready for some super fun crafts to arrive here in the next few weeks! Looking forward to crafting with you this Holiday Season!
