It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!
I can't believe it is already this time of year again...I mean, wasn't it just July last week? I swear the older I get the faster time flies by! Does anyone else suffer from this? My kids talk about how bored they get and constantly complain that they have "nothing to do". I wish I suffered from boredom for just one day. Wouldn't that be nice...I solid day of nothing-ness? I wouldn't want it to last forever mind you. Don't tell Mr. AKM but I secretly LOVE my little corner of chaos. Actually, I kinda thrive on it. I'm afraid if I didn't have something to do with my time I might go crazy...like straight jacket in a padded room kind of crazy. Not cool! Then I'd be forced to figure out how to decorate my padded room with all kinds of soft cushy things with just the use of my toes. Over-the-top crazy!
I make four loops of each ribbon (holding them between by fingers) and then tie them together with another piece of ribbon. I hope that makes since...I'm not the best at explaining this. I just make them :)
Then it is time to start assembling the wreath. I use tie wraps for most everything I put on my wreaths. Its easier to work with than wire and holds better than glue.
This is what it looks like with the tie wraps in action. Not the best of shots but you get the picture.
See it hidden in there? After I'm done I will cut the ends off and hide it in the branches. Easy peesy lemon squeezy!
Before I tie wrap the ornaments on I will hot glue the tops on to make sure they don't fall off! I speak from experience thus the concern with glass balls.
Then I just start randomly putting things on until I achieve the look I want...no rhyme or reason to it...
I love how all the elements came together don't you! It is so fun an festive! All the little pops of color just make me happy when I look at them.
