Vintage Ornament Wreath #3 - For my Hubby

I went to the store yesterday to get some more foam wreath thingies and by evening I couldn't keep myself from starting a new one.  Mind you, I had already been thinking about a color scheme and what objects I would use in this next one, so I already had a plan in my head.  I started about 6:30 pm, I actually wrapped two foam rings--one for my friend who asked me if I could help her make one.  After that, and getting the hanging wire on--I got busy.

It took me longer on this wreath.  I didn't want to do alternating colors on the outside and inside, but still wanted a particular outcome, so I had to fiddle with it a while before I was satisfied. I wanted this wreath to be a bit over the top--hubby likes lots of glitz!  I spent another few hours at least on it today. 


I used lots and lots of small balls on this one and it took me a while to get them all on there.  I would hang it on the wall, look at it take it down, put more stuff on it.  I like adding little bits of stuff like parts of old corsages and plastic foliage.  I just love all those old Christmas things.  Good thing I started collecting this Christmas vintage stuff last year, I still barely had enough old interesting ornaments for this wreath.

I have one more wreath that I really want to make, especially for me.  It will be pastel colors, lots of turquoise and pink I'm sure!  I still have a lot of plain ornaments, and newer decorated ones that are in colors that aren't ones I'm particularly attracted too, but I'm sure to make more wreaths just for fun!

We call this wreath Hi Ho Santa!

  1. Evie your wreath is so wonderful! I love how many small ornaments you used! It must have taken a long time!
    Say, would you be willing to change your settings so that you can reply to comments people leave you, right in your email? Because the only way anyone can see something you write back to them is if they revisit your post. I had a feeling that was what you were doing, so I checked your previous post, and sure enough you wrote about finding the HH Santa piece! That's wonderful by the way. Can't believe you found him!
    I would like to do a little blog post about your wonderful blog, because I know I have many followers that would love to follow you too. But I know they aren't going to go back to old blog posts to see if you responded to them. Relies usually come by email. Do you know what I mean? I hope I didn't offend you by saying something. I just think you should have way more followers than you do!
    Happy Wreath Making! I've been decorating all day and I'm exhausted! Erica :)

  2. I must be a stalker, I do go back to see if bloggers respond to my comment :) Does sound much easier to get it by email though. I also like to read other comments that people make...

    Another great wreath-you are on a roll. I LOVE the High Ho Santa-perfect name! I have to say, I think this one is my favorite.
