Have Yourself a Wreathy Little Christmas

This is a Christmas/Holiday Wreath I made today. After making a Halloween wreath (I'll post in another post, I am working backwards at this point), I knew I wanted to make a Christmas wreath too, I just didn't know what. A friend and I went to Michaels for some inspiration and I decided I would make a red and silver/white themed one after finding some cute red/white sparkly baubles.

This took me about 3 hours (or even less) today, and I just LOVE how it turned out! Overall, I spent less than $10 on this wreath as well. The baubles were $7.99 at Michaels, but I had a 20% off everything coupon yesterday, which made it about $6.40; the wreath form, flowers, and red/silver sprigs all came from the Dollar Tree, and I had the ribbon at home already. Gorgeous wreath for $10 or less? Score!

For how beautiful it turned out, you'd think I'd been designing and making wreaths for years, not that this was the second wreath I'd ever made...

What do you think?
