It feels like forever since I've posted anything! I hope you all had a very blessed Thanksgiving and long weekend. Ours was absolutely perfect! Oh, and let me tell you, that pumpkin pie from Paula Deen that I posted about last week, was CRAZY good...definitely a keeper recipe! They were all delicious; but that one knocked my socks off.
Today I have a fun project to share with you. It's a Christmas wreath made from a wire coat hanger, shatter-proof ornaments, ribbon and hot glue. My friend Kirsten shared the idea with me, and made a gorgeous one of her own. The original idea came from HERE.
Abbi & I made ours together, and decided that we are going to shop for some more ornaments and make another one for grandma & grandpa. We used about 70ish ornaments in our wreath, which we found at our local dollar store. Now, word to the wise, when the instructions say to hot glue the toppers on to the ornaments, they aren't kidding. This is a step you simply cannot skip. The other thing to note, is that your wire hanger should be as thin as possible. Ours was a pretty heavy-duty one; so we gave daddy the job of re-twisting the top at the end.
All in all, it was a fun project to do together, and it looks just beautiful hanging on the front door. :)
Our project for this evening is an advent calendar made from a mini muffin tin. I will share photos of that this week as well.
Have a fantastic day, friends!
Thanks so much for visiting with me today!
