Tinsel Wreath

I totally did not come up with this on my own. I saw the idea here. I fell in love with that wreath the minute I saw it. I usually do traditional, old fashioned Christmas decorations, but I like the obviously fake stuff too. I prefer trees and wreaths to be real, or obviously fake, and since I'm too busy to make a real wreath this year, this worked out great.

I didn't intentionally set out to make this wreath, but the thrift store had big ziplock bags of tinsel garland for $2 a piece. They also had a plain wooden wreath, so I knew it was meant to be! I didn't have any suitable fabric for the flower, so I got to thinking and came up with this. It's made from a Christmas box from last year. Yay for keeping Christmas wrapping! I knew it would come in handy. Anyway, I drew the design on the back of the box, one big and one little. I cut them out and attached them together with a pink brad. I attached it with florist wire, and that was it!

The only problem is that it's so cute it makes the rest of the door look terrible. I took the picture on the back of the door, but the paint on the front is peeling badly. I think I'm gonna wrap it in a cute paper so it will look nicer. Back to the Christmas wrapping stash!
