We’ll get to the wreath in a second, first I want to show you how I turned the Thanksgiving tray into a Christmas tray!
I already had most of this in my house including the paper. The candlestick holders and bowl were beautiful wedding gifts! And the shiny holiday bulbs. . . well, I bought them for the wreath and luckily had a few left over.
Simple but cute, right? Okay, now on to the fun stuff!
Store-bought wreaths are so expensive! And I never find one where I love every single thing about it so it never feels like it’s worth the cost. That’s why this year, I wanted to make my own wreath, and it had to be colorful and it had to be sparkly!!
I found this fantastic mess of sparkles and texture at Garden Ridge for $19.99. What a crazy store!
Garden Ridge also had bulbs in all sorts of sizes, colors and textures. I chose orange, turquoise, red and green all sparkly, shiny and a little matte too. Total cost for bulbs was $10.00.
First I simply placed the bulbs on the wreath to make sure my vision would work.
It seemed a little plain and needed something to tie it all together so I grabbed this ornament off the tree (thanks Mom)! Just what it needed!
Then I started with the hot glue! I think I used 3 sticks of glue!
Can you see all the glue on that bulb? I didn’t even burn myself!
Oh so pretty. I used red tulle to hang the ornament in the middle.
I love how it turned out and that I was able to incorporate the colors orange and turquoise in my Christmas decor!
I tried to clean up all the glitter but I think I will be finding it for years to come. Good thing I believe the world needs more glitter!
