Christmas Decor....




I finally got some pics of my decor. I got motivated last week to get out my decorations and decorate. I ended up having a good time with the kids decorating. I also got crazy and made the ornament wreath all by myself, so I had to put a picture of that on here. I know me make something, crazy!! It was so easy to do that I just had to do it. It looks perfect in my entry way corner, I was very happy with myself. Anyway I can't even remember where I got the instructions for it but it was on a blog that I happened to come across so when I went to go back to the blog I couldn't find it but luckily the instructions were so simple I could remember them. You just take a wire hanger and straighten it out the best you can, then just start adding non-breakable ornament balls until you get your desired look then bend it in a circle and twist the ends together. I added a bow because it was quite difficult to twist the ends perfectly so my bow is hiding the ugly twist. Anyway that is it!! I think it also said to glue some of the balls together so they don't move or show the wire. I haven't done it yet and will need to cuz you can see some of the wire. Anyway I don't normally make anything, I always buy it. I just don't have the patience to sit and make something but this year I have decided I need to be more frugal and spend less money (I spend way too much money)!!! I got all the balls and the ribbon at the dollar store. It cost about $9 total. I had the wire hanger all ready. Wow, I am amazed at myself for making this, go me!:)
