So what's a girl to do while waiting out a hurricane? Well if she's lucky enough to have power for her glue gun, she goes on a little wreath making frenzy!
While other people prepared by stocking up on milk, bread and toilet paper, I made sure I was ready with greens, ribbon, berries, snow and glitter!
For holiday wreaths, I like to start with a pre-made green wreath, but always add wispy pieces of other greenery to make it more interesting.
The fun part is picking out what pieces to hot glue on to the wreath.
I try to coordinate the color of the bow with whatever elements I'm going to add to the wreath. I don't start out with a specific plan, I just add items that coordinate nicely and every wreath ends up a little bit different.
Wired ribbon makes the very best bows.
Too bad I don't have a beach house!
Burlap bows are always fun too!
For a final touch, I lay the wreath on a sheet of poster board, spray with adhesive and give it a light dusting of snow and sometimes a little glitter too. It's only November, but my house is already covered with snow and glitter!
And I just had to make a few sheet music wreaths too!
So why did I go on a wreath making frenzy?
Our Elizabeth & Co. Holiday Open House is next weekend!
If you're a local reader, I hope you can join us! Our little house is decorated from top to bottom with vintage holiday goodness!
There will be preview photos later in the week.
Complete details are on the sidebar.
Hmmm, I think I feel a stocking making frenzy coming on next!
