Christmas Wreath



I had to show you all my project for the day. My DBL has this wonderful tree that is loaded with beautiful acorns. He was so sweet and brought me in a sack full. I decided to make a holiday wreath with them. I bought a wreath at the Dollar store and some holiday picks. (Which I promptly took apart.) Armed with my hot glue gun I started creating my wreath. Three small blisters (the love/hate relationship with my glue gun) I had this lovely wreath. Well, I think it is lovely. It cost me a total of $7.00 dollars. I know if I were to buy this ready-made it would be lots more! So, I have something new for the holidays and all the more special because it is home made!
My husband said I could use the song "Acorns Roasting On An Open Fire" . He is SOOOOO not into Christmas! I hope your Monday is a good one! Blessings!

FABULOUS Patty!
I love this wreath, beautifully arranged and it is so much nicer to make one - especially with your free acorns - than to buy a mass produced one, and cheaper too. Sorry to hear about the blisters though!
