It's now that time of the year when we're in the attic getting the Christmas decorations out! Here are a few decorating ideas I've collected throughout the holiday seasons. I always have fun decorating Christmas wreaths ... from elaborate to simple. Starting with a traditionally decorated Christmas wreath and spinning off with a few ideas ... Try wrapping a styrofoam form in a metallic gold ribbon and add a big bow or some evergreen. This is a great look for over a fireplace or in your entryway. Traditionally, wreaths are hung side by side. Try hanging your wreaths one over the other. I I !i! Another fun and simple idea is a "Snowball Wreath." Do this with styrofoam balls and a glue gun. For the wine lovers, try a simple "Cork Wreath." This looks great when you're setting up a bar for the holidays! Another easy idea is wrapping a wreath form in flannel ... very wintery[ O You can purchase a styrofoam form at Michael's Crafts. Need assistance putting it all together?
