Christmas Wreath

Hello everyone! It's beginning to look allot like Christmas around here! :)
I made this yesterday to hang on our door. Surprisingly, everything I used to create this came from the Dollar Tree! I love that store when it comes to crafting sometimes! :) Here's some close-ups...thanks for looking!

Wooden Christmas Frame

Hello everyone! I made this Christmas Wooden wall decor using the Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium paper pack.

I stained the wood with Tim Holtz Distress stain. After measuring the different compartments, I went through the paper pack and cut them to fit and matted some with solid colored card stock.

I made the bow using a green sheer ribbon and a thinner satin burgundy ribbon and tied it using my bow maker..
Just to add a little sparkle, I added some Distress Stickles and a gold star to this section as well as a stick pin.
This paper pack gives so many options on creativity. With just adding some gems and star buttons that I tied little bows on, this section is almost my favorite! :)
I bought this flower from my local dollar store and took it apart. I re-assembled it in reversed order and added a rhinestone brad and some Stickles to the center.
Thanks for looking and I hope this has inspired you to create and alter items for your home! :)
