Christmas Wreath






 My friend and I went thrift store hunting a few weeks ago- and I scored all these vintage ornaments for FREE. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them: a Christmas wreath! All it took was a little hot glue and a dollar store wreath. 

**Note: If you plan on making one of these, I suggest getting the foam wreaths...it would have made my life a lot easier!**

**UPDATED Note: When it get's too cold, the hot glue doesn't stay very well. I will be remaking this using e6000 glue.**





I LOVEEEE the results. =)










I will be linking this up to all the awesome blogs found HERE.
