Hello! I hope you all are knee deep in Christmas crafting, shopping and decorating! I'm just about done with my Christmas shopping (I got started early this year).
If you remember, I mentioned that I got our Christmas tree from a thrift store this year for 20 bucks. I also snagged a huge wreath for 4 bucks. I bought some ribbon to accompany it. I planned to stick with the theme of the tree by using multicolored ribbon and white ornaments.
The first idea that I had didn't work out so well (no pictures of that process), so I thought of a different idea. It all stemmed from a branch that was pointing off of the wreath. I decided to do a little "construction" to it.
First I started with a box, cut it so that it lied flat, then cut a triangle out of a flap. I then cut a curve on the edge of the triangle so that it would naturally curve with the wreath.
Then I hot glued the piece to the wreath and began hot gluing the ribbon to it.
I ended up having to add another piece of cardboard next to the first piece to extend it to the edge of the wreath.
Finally I added the white ornaments to a piece of the red ribbon and tied it to the top corner of the wreath. This is the end result!
Here's a little close-up
