Ornaments Everywhere!

I don't know how many of you remember this post from last year when I was still on the mac blog, but I had so much fun making my ornament wreath. Sure was a good thing I enjoyed it because here is the before and after the fire pics of my wreath...

After outside on the patio because it was a HUGE mess!

Apparently my little mover friends were not as careful as they thought they were being. It had only lost a few ornaments in the actual fire, so they wrapped it up and placed it in a box. What they did next was probably the problem, they threw all of the books from my bookshelf on top of it! How nice of them! Obviously when I found it I knew I was in trouble. I unwrapped the wreath and about 70 ornaments came flying out of the wrapping. UGH!

So, today starts the second wreath. I am going a little different route this year with some glittered ornaments and using some chocolate brown with the red, green, and gold. I'm excited to see how it turns out. I also salvaged my "L", so at least I don't have to do that part again.

Cute! And I love all the different ornaments that walmart offers! I just bought some to do a blue and turquoise tree for our bedroom (we had an extra little tree). Can't wait to see your finished product!
