So, let me share my Christmas project with you and then get you started on the ho-ho-ho-hop!!!



Supplies used from Thoughts2paper: Bo Bunny St. Nick line...sleigh, sugarplum, hollyberry and mistletoe and Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive.


I made this wreath to accompany my Christmas tree that I made last year. I used a flat white styrofoam ring from M's and I painted it green! I then cut several strips of paper into 3/4 x 4 inches....I folded each strip in half and used a quilters pin and some Helmar 450 adhesive and made a row of three strips of paper. I alternated the papers (the double sided paper is wonderful because you can just flip it) and just made rows of three going all around the wreath. I added a festive bow that I made using some left over ribbon and voila...a beautiful wreath!!


If you decide to follow my blog and leave me a comment, I will pick one winner to receive a bunch of handmade crochet poinsettias and flowers...the perfect touch to any Holiday gift or project! Now on to the ho-ho-ho-hop...please go hop on over to my friend Sarah's blog HERE for another wonderful Christmas project!
