Fa La La La La

I know some people think it's horrible to talk about Christmas decorating before Thanksgiving, but when you have a lot of decorating to do, you need to start early. I don't do outside decorations before the day after Thanksgiving, but I'm having 2 big parties at my house in early December so I'll be starting in a couple of weeks inside my house. Since I also sell wreaths and will be doing a couple of Holiday markets this year, I am in full swing Christmas right now. Here is a cute girlie wreath I made a little while ago. I thought these colors would be so cute together. Here is what I started with.

This wreath was made on a 30 inch work wreath form. The mesh and the form are from my wholesale supplier, but the other items are from Hobby Lobby and the ribbon is from Sam's Club. They have great ribbon, mesh and ornaments at Sam's.  And all for a great price.

I learned this new technique of rolling the mesh and attaching it to the work wreath with a pouf in the middle. I haven't seen anyone else selling wreaths with this technique. If you want me to do a tutorial on this new technique, leave me a comment and I'll try to do one next week. Here is the completed wreath.

This wreath is available in my Etsy shop. You can find the link on my sidebar. I'm linking to Kristen's Creations Share your Creations Party stop by and see what everyone is creating this week.
