Getting into the Holiday Spirit!



I'm not sure what was wrong with me, but I feel as if it took me forever to GET in the Christmas mood!
I know, I know its still only November, but thats REALLY late for me!
Needless to say I think I'm finally getting in into the Holiday spirit!
So last night I started making this DIY felt Christmas Wreath.
First you cut out a bazillion felt circles, then just scrunch and glue!  It's really as easy as that!
I ended up using a few different glues on this, a glue gun I found out worked the best.  I ran out of glue sticks about half way through, and ended up using fabric glue on the rest of it. I  Would NOT recommend this,  as it produced a really nasty smell when applied to the foam, and also started eating into the foam ring! 




I bought about 13 sheets of felt, at only .29 cents a pop, this was a very inexpensive Christmas wreath!




About half way through last night!





























I just hung it on a bedroom mirror to take a few photos, but I'm thinking it will reside on the front door once I find some pretty ribbon to hang it up with!

How are you guys getting into the Holiday Spirit, or is it way to early for you?

  1. Love it! Especially the little ornaments. I like to change the colors for christmas every year so having a white wreath like this would be perfect!

  4. Hello fellow Bird's Papaya award winner! I just wanted to come by and check you out. What a great idea for a wreath! I'm trying to think of one more place I could put a wreath around here so I could make one...

  6. Cute!! I might try this with blue & white felt! I decided to go with a blue & silver theme this year and realized it's impossible to find anything besides ornaments in that color... so I'm pretty much making all of my holiday decorations this year! Looks great!!

    {ps- not too early @ all!!}
