Vintage Ornament Wreath #4 - Making Lemonade out of Lemons

Quick post today--cleaning house, getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow!  I finished up a wreath yesterday evening.  I ended up with ornaments that will not go into making my pastel wreath, ones I've had or purchased recently in bags of mixed items, but I'm determined to use them!  Brown bells, balls and orange don't sing Christmas to me, but I loved the challenge!  As Tim Gunn would say "make it work!"

I bleached bottle brush trees and added mica to them, added this brown deer I picked up and added them to the center creating a bit of a diorama.  My hubby is calling this the Thanksgiving wreath.  He asked me if we could keep it, I said sure.

Break time over!  Back to chores!
