Handmade holidays :: a DIY wreath

Handmade holidays


With only one more week to go before X-mas we felt we needed a little more deco around the house to get into the mood completely. The idea for the Christmas balls we got from the latest issue of Whip up's Action Pack. We made a whole bunch of them using fabric scraps, sequins, yarn, my favorite baker's twine and some lace we still had lying around. Three were used to decorate a (store-bought) wreath. The balls were attached using a hot glue gun. We tied two pieces of fabric scraps in a bow for the finishing touch and - Voilà!

Pascale, I very much admire your wreath's design, and think it's particularly great that you are recycling treasures. I also am a saver of bits and pieces, since I just know that someday I will find a place where these bits and pieces will have a star role.

Cheers!
