I have been planning on making an ornament ball wreath for quite sometime. I'm honestly not sure what has taken me so long to do it because even though it was time consuming it is pretty simple. I didn't realize, but I already had all of the supplies in order to make it. I pulled out my big Christmas box of goodies last night and I knew I had to make it. My Grandmother had given me several things in the past few years that she was no longer using as her decorations. She doesn't know that I tweeked them a bit, but I'm pretty sure the crafty woman would be ok with it. I pulled out the wreath that she had made I don't even know how long ago and realized I could use that as my base for the ball wreath. I meant to take pictures the entire way through, but as you will see I got distracted and forgot.
This is a picture of all little do-dads that were connected to my Grandmother's wreath...a little outdated.
There was a little bit too much fluff going on for me to cover with the ornaments I had, so I made a huge mess around my garbage can and ended up with this as my frame.
Just for kicks and grins here is the genius herself, Grandmother!! This picture was taken at her 80th birthday party just a few weeks ago. Our backdrop is the quilt she made me. She is super crafty and she doesn't even know what Pinterest is!!!!
Happy re-creating from old crafts,
