Christmas Wreath

This weekend I was a working machine! I guess the pressure of Christmas sneaking up right around the corner is getting me in gear.
While hanging out with some friends the subject of a wreath came up. I think we were talking about crafts since she does them with the kids in her daycare.
They dont have a wreath.
I dont care if you dont have a tree, but you gotta have a wreath so I set out to attempt to make one for them.
I found this tree topper ribbon at Kmart for 40% off.

And this pack of shatterproof mini ornaments for 40% off as well.
Thats what you get for waiting till the last minuite to get Christmas decorations.
I normally buy mine about a week or so after Christmas when they're 75% off.

I found this grapevine wreath at Walmart for $3!
Thats a great deal for a wreath around these parts!

First I tied the ribbon to the wreat.

Then I glued the balls in random places in bunches of 3

I used a lot of hot glue to make sure they stuck.

The ribbon wasnt long enough to wrap around the whole wreath so I made do with what I had and glued some balls where I ran out of ribbon to hide the ends.

And here it is all done!

Im thinking not perfect but also not bad.
Its a gift I made from my heart and I'll be delivering it today.
Hope they like it.

I'll be linking to the parties {here}

This is a very nice gift! I'm going to be posting an evergreen wreath tutorial later today if you're interested in learning how to make one. I just taught a class and they're very easy. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Visiting from BNOTP party.

p.s. Just noticed you're in Hawaii . . . you probably don't have evergreens there :), but you can make a wreath from palm branches or any leaves . . .
