Never Too Late {or too early!} For a Good Christmas Project

If any of you follow me on Pinterest, you already know that I love a good wreath.  One that I especially love is an ornament wreath at Christmas time.  In fall of 2012, I decided that I would start collecting glass ornaments to make my own ornament wreath.  I collected all through 2013, and by November, had enough ornaments to make my wreath.

You all know how the Thanksgiving\Christmas Season is a little nuts schedule-wise, and my wreath did not get made.

So I am making it now, and when Christmas 2014 rolls around, I will be ready!P1200406To start, I chose a large wreath form and wrapped it with some vintage tinsel I found at the thrift store.

It was super easy to make, and kind of fun.  I’m not sure why I put it off for so long.

The hard part now?  Waiting a whole year to use it.
