Ashley's wreaths :)

Look what my daughter Ashley made me :)
Isn't it gorgeous.
Ashley saw this idea on Pinterest last year.  We fell in love.

So this blog post is a tutorial made for you by Ashley :)
What you will need for this project is a foam wreath.

Christmas ornaments....and lots of them.
We bought a package with 100 Christmas balls in them, and it had two different sizes in it. 

You will also need some smaller Christmas ornaments. I really like both of these packages because both have different textures. Some are shiny, sparkly or frosted.

The first step is to seperate the ornaments into the different sizes.
Starting at the outside attach the ornaments with hot glue. You will go through A LOT of hot glue. 

Ashley took this photo, can you tell ;)

After you attach all the ornaments around the outside and inside of the wreath, then it is time to cover the rest of the wreath. After that is done, you take the small ornaments and attach them in the spaces where the bigger ornaments left gaps.

 Here it is all finished. I totally LOVE this.
I need to get some wider ribbon to hang it by, but I wanted to share it with you today :)

When I had seen this I had told Ashley her Aunt Sharon would love this in blue (her favourite colour).
So Ashley made her aunt's wreath last night for her Christmas present :) 
Sharon doesn't read my blog...she couldn't, she doesn't have a computer, an iPad or even a cell phone. So no worries of her finding out.
The blue one is a bit smaller as they didn't have the same sized foam wreathes.

Onto My Day:
Worked all day.
I will probably be working all day tomorrow as well.
I was going to save the blue wreath for my blog post for tomorrow, but Ashley said that was cheating, lol.

I hope you all have had a creative Monday :)
