Around and around- DIY Dare

Dare to DIY
My creation is nothing original, literally everyone and their mother has made one...an ornament wreath.


Every since seeing it floating around blog land last winter- most notably here, I wanted to make my own. But I had a very specific color scheme in mind- pear/kiwi green, cranberry/maroon red and antique gold. Each color in 3 sizes and 3 finishes (shiny, matte, and glitter). However, after spending the past year searching dozens of stores and websites I was unable to find those colors.  

So I finally gave in bought the closest ones I could find at Target. Sadly, the red options were lacking, and...I broke one. Here are the ornaments I ended up with-

It was harder than I thought to get the ornaments turned around and organized. And when I used a command hook in an attempt hang it above the mirror, as I did last year, it fell. So here is my somewhat funky looking 1st attempt-


I think the top two gold ornament look like little ears. :)

Go see Kim's list to pick our your projects for next year's decor.

I have had this urge to be crafty, but it has yet to happen. Your wreath is super cute!
