While home with my family at Thanksgiving, I got to spend a few days just hanging out and relaxing. My sister gave me an awesome project to work! Her house is a stunning "cabin" in the country and has a massive fireplace. She had a pretty wreath up over the mantel, but it just wasn't to scale, so we chatted and decided to go bigger. She could see the gleam in my eyes as I thought about the massive amounts of glitter that would be on sale. I was please to be able to be a "consulting crafter" since she wasn't sure where to start looking for a big, pre-lit wreath. I sent her off for the greens and and I went for the gold and silver. Then, off I went working on this 5-footer!
I worked in her garage with a little Christmas music playing and my mom helping out by sweeping up glitter behind me. The only music source I had was my iPhone, so I flipped on my playlist and the first song was something from my workout playlist by Judas Priest. Right away, I realized that wouldn't work...haaaaaaaaaa So, I downloaded Pandora and got to some streaming Christmas goodness. Much better. I went CRAZY with the glittery stuff and ribbon. It was so much fun because it's something that I normally wouldn't do...at least not on that large of a scale. I couldn't pick just one ribbon, so I used six of them. haaaaaaaaa
And, when all was said and done, my sis sent a shot of the final result all hung up and lit...just perfect!!!! I highly recommend a little glitter and wire if you need any additional reason to get in the holiday spirit!
