Some are great and work out perfectly, some don't.
For the Christmas season I found some great wreaths that I wanted to make. I don't have any wreaths, I don't have much in the way of Christmas decorations so this year I wanted to remedy that.
Here was my inspiration:
I thought it was beautiful, especially against my blue door.
All it took were some silver glitter snowflakes from Big Lots, an embroidery hoop, some silver paint, a ribbon, and a lot of hot glue. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.
Here's my other try at a Pinterest inspired Wreath.
I found out that it was much harder than I thought.
I used the Bob's candy-canes in cherry. Which are my most favorite in all the candy canes and I have tried many. I had tried to avoid using hot glue since it would melt the candy and make it inedible, but alas, it was the only thing that would hold. I also used way too many ribbons in way too many colors. I changed the design too much and it just didn't look right after I finished.
In the immortal words of The Bloggess...."Meh, they're not ALL winners."
I'm not convinced that this candy cane wreath can't be done, I just need to re-think it some more.
