Christmas DIY Wreath

This past week at work was really slow, so my manager and I decided to pull out the Christmas decorations too see what we had and what we could do. There was a tone of stuff!! We will probably spend the next week decorating the store.

 I love Christmas decorating, I don't have a lot of d├ęcor at home to decorate with so I am taking full advantage of being creative at work!

 On Friday I put a bunch of different items together to make a Christmas wreath, I found a plan old twig wreath in the storage room, so I spray painted it white. Then I came across some white mesh in the pile of "stuff" and wrapped it around the wreath, which kind of gave it a soft snowy look.

Next I took some fuzzy branch-like pieces (kind of like pipe cleaners) and added them to the wreath, along with some snowflake ornaments that are full of glitter.

I then picked through the different kinds of ornament bulbs that I wanted to place on the wreath. I choose a white, silver and blue theme for the wreath and all different sizes of bulbs. (I used a  hot glue gun to glue it all together).

This is what the finished wreath looks like....

Hanging on the wall...

Now I just wish I could bring it home! (I was full of glitter when I finished!)

Do you like decorating for Christmas? Do you have any favourite Christmas DIY crafts you like to make?
