As a part of the Crafty Christmas Link party, today I'm sharing with you this easy peasy DIY snowflake wreath.
This year I decided to go with red and lime green accents for Christmas. Well, it was actually decided last year on the day after Christmas. I like to buy a lot of my holiday decor right after Christmas for the next year. Usually stores have things 50-80% off.
I scored these little snowflakes from Target for 25 cents a 4 pack. They had red, lime green, and dark green. I bought 8 packs. Yeah a total of $2 spent. I love projects like that!
I stored them in my Christmas boxes all year. As soon as I pulled them out to start decorating this year, I knew what I wanted to make.
Normally this little niche has out engagement picture and a few small candles.
The wreath couldn't be wider than this niche, and I knew I wanted it to lay on something. So I dug through my old shutter collection (doesn't everyone have one of those??) and found this.
I cleaned it up and started laying out my snowflakes.
I started with the dark green.
After I made a circle, I started hot gluing each one together. Be careful because I think I took off 5 layers of skin doing this!
I just kept layering and layering the snowflakes in a pattern until I was happy with the results!
For the ribbon, I just cut off the tail of a bow I found on clearance and then attached it to the back of the shutter.
Here's that same little spot in the foyer now.
The prints are just old Christmas cards that matched my colors I wanted to do this year. I just used scrapbook paper and Goodwill frames.
So there you have it. Easy peasy Christmas decor! I actually have seen the snowflakes at Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, and Target, so go and get you some!! They had tons of colors :)
