Last year I bought "unbreakable" ornaments for our tree and I let the children have fun decorating the tree. Of course that resulted in all the ornaments along the bottom of the tree and almost all the ornaments destroyed before Christmas. *Sigh*
With only 4 kid proof ornaments left, I decided it would be a great time to try a new Christmas color scheme. After asking the Mr. for his ideas, he suggested Red, White and Blue decorations. Done!
I have never seen red, white and blue decorations in the store so this meant I had indirect permission to get crafty...right?! I mean the whole color scheme is his idea...I'm just making it happen. #muricanchristmas
For my first Christmas project I decided to make a wreath. I've never made a wreath before but I think mine turned out pretty well (and it cost less than $25 to make).
Are you ready to make your own? Great! Let's start off with the supplies you will need:
- Pine Wreath (small size, purchased 50% off at JoAnn's)
- White Poinsettias (5 per stem)
- White Eucalyptus
- Another other type of accent holiday florals you wish to use (I selected blue berries)
- 1 package of 22 gauge cloth wrapped floral wire
- Hot glue gun and glue stick(s)
- Wire cutters
