Christmas Crafts



I really havent been doing to much craft or project-wise lately. But when I saw the Eddie Ross wreath that's floating around, I knew I wanted to make it! I got my ornaments the other week at Target when they were buy 2, get 1 free. I wanted the blue & silver packages, but they were gone, so I went with the bright mult-colors. I'm not really a red & green girl.


But, in true Wendy fashion, it's not finished. It's been in this state for about 2 weeks. As you can see, I've got some spots to fill in. I think I'm just going to hot glue some in place. I'm not really interested in redoing the whole thing!
And the top isnt done. I havent decided if I should do the ribbon like he did? Or just try & hide that hook? What do you think? AND - if I do the ribbon - what color?!



These were started last year. They sat around in my craft area all year long, but I finally decided to have the kids finish them. They are foam balls, covered in toothpicks. I then spray painted them white. The kids went in with a paint brush and added the color of their choice. Then, while the paint was wet, I added glitter. I couldnt really get a shot of them sparkling, but trust me, they do!



They ended up pretty big, so instead of hanging them, we just stuck them in the tree!





I had plans of making Layla a hair clip holder, but I'm not sure it's going to happen. I found some awesome deals on clips at Claire's, they had been having a bunch of stuff on clearance, and when you bought 10 (they also did 12!) they were $1.00 each. She loves her hair clips, so we stocked up.
But besides that, I am ALMOST done shopping. All I have left is one gift card, and I'm getting that today. Now if I could just get the kids to sleep early so I can finish wrapping!

Merry Christmas Wendy. The wreath looks great. I haven't been posting lately but that shouldn't last forever. Thanks for sharing what your up to. The toothpick ornaments are really cute. You'll cherish those knowing the kids helped out.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Your wreath looks great - I say go for the ribbon at the top. Maybe in a purple color? Good luck and Merry Christmas!

I vote for an aqua bow and hot glue :)

It looks cute! I say hot glue some and throw some ribbon on there and it will be good to go. It looks great now as it is. What about using a silver ribbon? Or you maybe could do a double ribbon and pick two solid colors out of the wreath?
