DIY Wreath & Me!

Yes, I talked myself into another DIY project . . . why do I these things?? I should have been cleaning and decluttering, but instead I was threading a blue million ornaments onto a wire hanger! I saw the wreath featured on another blog (sorry, not sure which one) and it looked so cool and easy (famous last words, right?).




It actually took a lot more time and work than I thought it would. But since I knew I couldn't take the ornaments back, I figured I better keep going and get it done. I also ended up with glitter all over my clothes, the kitchen, the basement, just about everywhere. It still needs a few touch ups and additional smaller ornaments stuck in here and there, but I'm almost afraid to mess with it now! Ooops - just noticed, of course, it needs a bow and ribbon! See, I am a bit of a lame DIY'er -- I pretend it's totally finished before it's actually all done!
Hey, over at Kimba's blog, A Soft Place To Land it’s DIY Tuesday! Everyone loves inspiration to Do It Yourself !

Nice job Janet... that wreath is gorgy! Famous last words...I thought it'd be easier than it was! LOL - I have to laugh because I am a sucker for DIY stuff and think, oh that's easy...not!!

You are so like me in this - heh. I love the wreath though. I think you did a beautiful job and the bow will just complete the look. Now go de-glitter yourself.

It looks great to me! Why do DIY projects always look easy until you are half way through and it seems like you will never get done? By the way how did you do it because one of those would look great on my front door.

I think it looks great, love the colors you used.

Casey said...

You are so funny!! I love it... it's a really cute wreath.. although I could totally see how it took a long time to accomplish. I'm exactly the same way though. I think things will take an hour or two and it ends up being an all day project.

Love it!!
