My Christmas Ornament Wreath

 

This last weekend was Meri’s AZ Bloggers Luncheon and ornament wreath party…..we had such a wonderful day, I am going to let Meri tell you all about it on her blog, but I wanted to show you my wreath….

For a first time, it came out pretty good….I learned about layering, and on the next one I make will be different.  More uniform in shape.  But I am happy with it.

Also….while I was at Albertson’s grocery store I came across “Autumn” poinsettias!

Aren’t they just beautiful?  I have never seen fall colored poinsettias!

Hope you all have a great week!

JUST BEAUTIFUL! You did a great job, Sandy, and no, I've never ever seen an Autumn Poinsettia. (Nice that you can keep it outside, ours have to stay inside through the holidays, too cold!! :)

Your wrath is great, so festive and you used the cutest little vintage things. I have a tutorial (somewhere), for a shiny bright wreath and hope to attempt to make one this year.

Love your fall colored Poinsettia too! Unique, isn't it?

The wreath is adorable. I love the fullness of it! And all the bright colors.

Sandy! A wreath that is perfectly you! I always see pink hued wreaths, this is such a lovely addition. What a lot of work, but so well worth the effort.
I hope I come across the beautiful Poinsettia. The color is so pretty. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! E PS I will be sending you and Meri a Deer Ornament with your shadow boxes. I hope you like it. E

I wish I could have been there. I made one a couple years ago but I want to make another and have it look more symmetrical too, though yours looks perfect. I want yours.
