Christmas Wreath

I saw this wreath on Tatertots & Jello, and I really wanted to make it! I decided to go with more traditional Christmas colors, so I did the red, green, and added some silver. I started out the way it said, to hot glue the stuff onto the wire form. However, I wasn't as careful as I should have been and when I had a little of it done, I burned my finger pretty bad! The glue dripped down onto my finger. My husband decided the best thing was to put ice on it, and I sat there for 45 min. with ice on my fingers, and they were still throbbing after that. I decided that I was going to wrap the wire form in fabric. I ended up pulling all the stuff off that I had previously glued on.  I then cut some red fabric into strips and wrapped. While I wrapped, I hot glued the fabric down. Then I started the process over. It isn't perfect, but it's good enough for now. :)

Sorry I was a little MIA. My daughter was sick for a little bit, and then I got it. My husband and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on Dec. 8th! I can't believe we've been married for 3 years! He is wonderful and is pretty good about all my crafting. :)
