vintage Christmas wreath

Welcome to day 26 of the 31 day challenge.  Today we are going to be making a wreath out of vintage materials.  I got the wreath at Goodwill for a couple dollars.  It was a good blank canvas.

I bought this box of Christmas ornaments at a garage sale this summer for $1!  I think you can still get similar boxes at Walmart or Michael's.  These had a 1980's trademark on them which qualifies for vintage in my book.

Next I cut off the little gold threads at the top and just started gluing.  Hot glue works the best.

I used almost the whole box to make this...

I love it!  Can you tell I like bright and colorful Christmas decorations?  This wreath might even get a coat of glitter.

  1. WOW! This is so awesome, Jenni! You make it look easy . . . but how you come up with the ideas still floors me! It does make me want to try making a wreath this year . . . thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I love this! I want to make one!

  3. So pretty and guess what it is looking a lot like Christmas here,we are in the middle of a snow storm!

  4. I saw it was snowing in Denver... sounds kind of fun! This wreath is so easy to make... I just saw wood ornaments at Michael's yesterday (if you don't want to scour Goodwill)

  5. What an incredible transformation!!! I love it!!! Can't wait to move so I can do crafts ;))

  6. My mom had these same vintage ornaments when I was little. This brings back lots of memories :)
