I am very excited to share with you my stunning gold tinsel Christmas wreath and cones!
Well Christmas is fast approaching and I find myself running out of time to complete extensive new projects for the holiday season. Between shopping, birthdays (both my hubby and my daughter are this week), and holiday parties, I’m short on time… and patience!
So while trying to organize my craft closet, I ran across a couple of supplies that I thought would make a festive little Christmas wreath. And what did they all have in common? GOLD! I normally like a pop of color throughout my home, so I’m guessing I just keep shoving the gold aside in hopes that a craft project will just come together. Well, I guess now’s the perfect time to put them to good use!
I gathered my straw wreath form (still in the plastic wrap), 3 garlands of 9ft gold tinsel from the Dollar Tree, a large gold bow, a gold snowflake ornament and greenery pins.
I wrapped the wreath form in the garlands of tinsel and used a couple of greenery pins to keep them in place.
WOW! Stunning! I’m liking it already!
Next I pinned the large wire gold bow to the bottom of the wreath.
I also had this fancy gold snowflake ornament that I got on clearance from Michael’s last year after the holidays. Guess I’m smarter than I look cause I found 3 bags full of clearance items that I got for 80% off last year! SCORE.
I attached the ornament to the top of the wreath with a greenery pin and VOILA! It’s complete!
A great last minute project for the upcoming holidays. The best part? ALL leftover Christmas and craft supplies so it didn’t cost me a penny (well, today at least)!
While wandering aimlessly through the Dollar Store aisles the other day to kill some time, I spotted some 9ft tinsel garlands that were screaming for a cheap project. (Here we go again!)
I scooped up 4 garlands (2 red and green, 2 red and gold).
I found some cheap cardboard cones from Michael’s in the Christmas section. I picked up two small and one large and planned to make some cheap & fun tinsel trees!
First thing I did was get out my hot glue gun. I glued one end of the tinsel garland to the top of one of the small cones.
I then wrapped the tinsel around the cone all the way to the bottom and glued along the bottom edge.
Once the glue was dry, I went back and glued the loose midsection of the garland to the base. Much easier to space out my tinsel this way!
And that’s about it! Super easy 5 minute project! The best part? All three Christmas tree cones cost less than $8!
Well, I guess now that it’s November there will be lots of Christmas projects coming down the pike! I’m excited to be guest blogging at two great blogs in the upcoming weeks: Lines Across My Face and Under the Table and Dreaming. I’ll keep you posted!
