Sharing the Joy: Weekend Crafting - I made a wreath!


This wreath I made last night came from the $6 Dollar Wire Hanger Christmas Wreath craft from the book, Six Sisters' Stuff: Family Recipes, Fun Crafts, and So Much More! I own this book and their other book, A Year with Six Sisters' Stuff: 52 Menu Plans, Recipes, and Ideas to Bring Families Together (unfortunately, I do not have their new Christmas book yet). I LOVE their books. I cook with their recipes ALL the time. This was my first time to make one of their crafts and it was a terrific experience.

I used these exact ones (Kmart.com)

The others were similar to these,
but with more red, lighter blue and pink

For my wreath, I used two different types of ornaments (80 total, shatterproof). I made the bow with wire edged ribbon. I've been making bows like this for years so that part wasn't new, but making the wreath was a new...and fun...experience. Mine cost a bit more than $6 because I didn't have the ornaments just lying around. I had to buy them, but I got a great deal during the Black Friday sales.


Full instructions for this craft, including a ribbon making tutorial, can be found at the Six Sisters' Stuff website HERE.

Let me know if you end up making one. Would love to see your finished project!
