My front door wreath.... Barbie it involves a bow :)

Posted by   + Show Post

So I decided to get crafty and make a wreath for my front door- it was suppose to involve a glue gun and ornaments, but my husband was also involved so it ended up with pine cones, apples and cranberries- I put it all together while he and the cats watched.

The cat did try to help at one point-

Holy Yikes! and that would be why I don't buy wreaths. $49.99?! I could find something else to spend that on! Clothes, shoes, necklaces...

Quoting psych_mom:

Thanks! Sure, why not? I'll only charge you $49.99, lol. I think that's what I saw handmade wreaths for at Michael's.

Quoting jaytee:

Very nice!



Feel like making another one? Lol!

Oh, I love it!  That is almost the look I was thinking of doing my tree this year. Your bow is amazing!  That's the type I've been trying to make but the loops are all uneven when I make it, and they bunch to one side. I have bow envy.  You must come over and help me!!!

That's why I made my own. I had the wreath, got the lights, bow and other little things for less than $12.

I'm not crafty at all, lol. I can make bows and decorate, but not much of anything else.

I wouldn't even know where to begin when it comes to bow making! Decorating I could do an okay job if I had the proper tools/funds, Kwim?

This is what I did with my remaining ribbon tonight-

I was afraid it wasn't going to look right without a bow at the top, but it actually looks good with my vintage angel. So glad because I am not taking her off my tree, lol.
