I didn’t make my wreath this year. I usually try to make it from the tree clippings. However, I found a faux-frosty one on clearance at Target (my favorite post-Christmas place!) last January.
I needed to add a little to it. Since we’re all white and silver this year, I decided to add pearl beads and chandelier crystals to bling it up a bit.
This spring I actually found a bunch of mirrored, inspirational magnets at Office Depot for a dollar a piece. Go figure. I bought all of them. (I do that. I am never sure how I will use something, I just know that I will. It’ll come to me at some point.)
So I took my mirrored faith and wired it onto the wreath too.
By adding in a few more embellishments, I took a $5 wreath and made it look a whole lot better. (And I am fairly certain that no one else on my block has a Christmas wreath decorated like a chandelier….)
Of course, I do like to use actual chandeliers too. Isn’t it so much fun to take cheap crap and make it pretty!!???!!!
I would see those mirror words and say, “what a deal!…what would I do with them?…I’ll take 2” and then never use them!
First it just dawned on me that I constantly spell your name wrong, sorry:) Second, I love your wreath!!!! I bet it looks fab with the everchaning chandi!!! I am with you, buy something only to know you’ll use it later, that faith is terrific!
I love your wreath! I love the mirrored ornaments! What a steal! I can’t wait to see your white and silver decor. Or did I miss it? Hmmmm, I’ll have to check.

I WOULD take cheap crap and make it pretty if I knew how. Next time I see something cheap, I’ll take a picture of it, send it to you, and you tell me what to do with it. Deal?
it is beautiful.
I’m with Shawn, that’s what I usually do too. OR, I don’t get em and then it hits me a few months later why I needed them in the first place.
Loving the wreath! Love that you see potential in all things.
That faith magnet really adds to this! I love your wreath.
I really wanted to make my own wreath this year, but I am a slacker. Pooo….
I really like this one though…can you send me some of your creativity?
Gorgeous! I used to make my own wreaths every year. I haven’t done it in years though. What a slacker I am! Seriously, could you just move closer to me already. You could redo my whole house, I’d let ya!!! 🙂
