Time to take down the Christmas decorations too and this year I'd like to add to my tree decorations but I'm not keen on buying over priced plastic.
So just the other day I had a light bulb moment when I was sorting through a cupboard and found these wooden curtain rings which are spare since we redecorated my youngest daughter's bedroom.
They are so easy to decorated in any style you like!
I didn't have to buy a thing! I just brought out my box of tricks and heated up the glue gun!
This was the first more traditional style mini wreath ornament. I put a dab of hot glue on the back and stuck down the string and started wrapping round and round.
It was nice enough and reminds me of a candy but I got the buttons out again and added that extra detail
Next I used this vintage crocheted ribbon with buttons already attached. (I bought this on vacation in a prim store called Cocalico Creek in Lancaster County.)
Here's how it looks finished
...and hanging on the small tree for now.
This one is really different for me but I'm loving it's frosty, wintery look. I had white chenille wool and again wrapped it around the curtain ring. it would be pretty left like that but I got some crystal beads and glued them on
... some blue too!
It looks great on the tree and I am making more!
Hope you were inspired to try making these too and hope you share them with me!
So pleased to be linking again with
