Let me make this declaration. I am a FIRM believer that you do not decorate for one holiday before another has taken place. Firm. Believer. Thanksgiving and Christmas are two very different feelings to me, and I don’t need decor mixing ‘em up. However…
I couldn’t resist a jump up on just one. So I’ve seen others taking part in this project, but Eddie Ross’s was my dream wreath. The colors were perfect, and that bow sang to me. He used about 80 ornaments. I did not.
I hit up the dollar store and bought these tubes of ornaments for, well, $1.00. The pink ones I picked up for 1/2 off at Michaels. I had to have the pink. Oddly enough, I actually had to buy a package of wire hangers at the dollar store. I didn’t have a single one! Wire hangers and I don’t really get along.
Like Eddie says, unwrap the wire and form a circle out of the hanger. Then, just thread the ornaments on in assorted colors. I hot-glued the hook to half of them like he told me to. The other half, I didn’t. I regret that decision.
Of course, the only problem now is that I didn’t buy enough ornaments for two of them. Inside the den is where I keep the kids’ white tree, and I thought this would be a cute entrance. Looks like I’m back to the dollar store for more!
Until then, let’s just pretend.
Okay. That’s it. Back to Thanksgiving. No more talk of this stuff.
