I am a covered in gold glitter, hence the title. This reminded of the other day when the cashier at Hobby Lobby told me it’s not the holidays unless he goes home covered in glitter! Lol, I love it. Mission accomplished!
I have been playing with my glue gun and my glittery gold snowflakes (again). This week’s creation is a wreath for our mantel. I love how it turned out:
It’s pretty self explanatory, but here’s the details….
- Gather your supplies:
- Wrap ribbon around the wreath (hot gluing the ends to the back of the wreath):
- Glue on snowflakes. I found some old silver snowflakes with our Christmas ornaments and alternated them with the gold ones to mix it up a bit:
- After I applied all the snowflakes, I added a glittery “Merry Christmas Ornament” (first I cut off the ring above the “r”):
- Next I covered a wreath holder with gold ribbon and hung on our mantel mirror. Merry Christmas!
I love how the wreath adds some sparkle to our mantel. You can also see Kevin’s Department 56 Collection. These little buildings are so cute. We have a fire station (because Kevin is a fireman),
a New Orleans Café (because Kevin loves NOLA),
a Tiffany Lamp shop (because Kevin loves stained glass lamps),
an Ice Skating Rink (complete with moving ice skaters…I think this one was just cute, we are not big ice skaters!),
The Art Institute of Chicago (we love Chicago),
and a Church (this reminds me of Holy Name in Chicago)…
And of course, a real mantel would not be complete without stockings. Can you guess who’s is who’s?
No we don’t have any children….Stewie (our Jack Russell terrier mix) and Mr. Crackers (our peach faced love bird) need stockings too! Anyone else out there have stockings for your pet? I am sure there are a lot of dog owners who do so, but is there anything more exotic than a love bird getting gifts from Santa?
Have a great week!
