Lime Green and Pink Ornament Wreath with White Tinsel Garland

Christmas Lime Green and Pink Ornament Wreath with White Tinsel Garland

I love lime green and pink together and the tinsel added the extra little bit of holiday flair.

The base of the wreath is a 14" straw wreath that I tightly wrapped with pink yarn.

I used two different sizes of pink and green shatterproof ornaments. I used white tinsel garland to fill in between the ornaments.

The completed wreath measures 18" wide.

I think it looks like they are resting in snow.

I used a piece of 3mm hemp cord to make a small hanger in the back. The wreath is pretty heavy and it gives plenty of support.

I wanted to make something that was more subdued and classic but still representative of the holiday season.

The overall effect is quite stunning.

Holiday Blue Deco Mesh Wreath with Silver Star and Ornaments

Holiday Blue Deco Mesh Wreath with Silver Star and Ornaments

I decided to change it up a bit for this wreath instead of using the standard red and green for Christmas.

I started with a 12" wire wreath form. I wrapped the wreath with this beautiful bright blue deco mesh.

I had a large metal star left over from a previous craft project and decided to cover it with silver glitter. I also added a couple of coats of acrylic sealer to keep the glitter from falling off. The star measures 11".

I also added several mini silver ornaments to accent the entire piece.

Someone also mentioned to me that it could be a great wreath for a Cowboys Fan!!

Grinch Green Fun Fur Yarn Wreath

Grinch Green Fun Fur Yarn Wreath

I was digging through my craft supplies and noticed that I had a good bit of the lime green fun fur left over from a spring project. I sat there trying to figure out how I could incorporate this into a holiday wreath....and it hit me....The Grinch!!

I used a 14" Styrofoam Wreath form and wrapped it with Lime Green Fun Fur Yarn. Yes....this could definitely be The Grinch. I pinned the hat to the wreath to make sure that it would not come off. I also added a small piece of cardboard inside the hat to keep it in just the exact shape that I wanted.

The eyes and and nose are cut out of foam sheets and then glued to green floral wire. I inserted the floral wire into the wreath and now I have a face!! I thought...this is starting to look awesome.

I took black tinsel cord and made the mouth shape and then attached it to the wreath and The Grinch was created.

I also added a yarn loop in the back for hanging.

The completed wreath is about 19" tall (to the tip of the hat).

Overall, I am quite pleased with the way that this guy turned out. Probably one of my favorite wreaths I have made to date!!

This particular wreath will be made to order. Processing time will be approximately 3-5 days. 

The first one of these I made sold on Etsy in less than an hour after I listed it!!  Quite a popular guy!!

Silver and White Tulle Snowflake Wreath

Silver and White Tulle Snowflake Wreath

Add this beautiful tulle wreath to your holiday home decor.

I started out with a 10" styrofoam wreath form. I used white tulle and silver glitter tulle and tied in bands around the entire wreath form.

As a side note: I absolutely love working with glitter anything....especially glitter tulle because it gets everywhere and I truly believe that glitter makes everything better. :-)

I also attached 3 silver glitter snowflakes I picked up while shopping for ideas.

The completed wreath measures 17" wide. I also attached a small white yarn loop in the back of the wreath for easy hanging.

I love the way this wreath turned out and plan on doing more in various colors for the season.
