Christmas Wreath Card

Welcome to Leisure Lane today. I hope you’re all enjoying the day. It’s full of promise – I promise!

Today, I’d like to share another Christmas card. I painted the wreath and decorated it with some craft stick-on “pearls” and some cute gold flecks. The flecks were from a package I bought at the dollar store in the cosmetics department. They’re for finger nail decor and the package came with different colors and shapes, like iridescent and silver stars, green circles, etc. So, next time you’re in the cosmetic section, look around – you may be surprised to find things you can use for craft projects.

Finished off the wreath with a raffia red bow and added one of those silver star flecks to its center. I used the corrugated cardboard as is; I think it adds something nice in its raw state.

Thank you for strolling by today. I hope you’re inspired to do something fun to decorate your home or give as a gift.

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Marianne

    Another beautiful Christmas Card! You truly have the Christmas “spirit” big-time. Keep it up…it is refreshing to see all these artistic things you do at Christmas time. We have our wreath up for a week now and our tree is up so we will decorate over the weekend! The whole house since a week ago, has every room decorated with tons of Christmas things that have been traditions handed down in generations of my family. It is so cheerful and picturesque….each room! What joy all this stuff is…Christmas is the best time of the year! In January when we take all the stuff up to the attic the house looks BARE! Ugh!

      Yes, the only down side about decorating is having to undecorate…LOL! And I’m doing lots of snow scenes because it’s 60s-70s here!! Can I have a unanimous “Ugh”. Muggy, too. So, if I want snow I have to make my own…but…it’s not over, yet, so one can still hope. Have a lovely evening, surrounded by your decorations, family, and fond memories, Tom.
