I may have somewhat over-exaggerated when I said the other day that I hadn't anything at all yet to get ready for Christmas.
I've done like one thing.
Yep. I've made a Christmas wreath, so that's a start right?
Granted, it's not your traditional Christmas wreath like the ones I have made in the past... it's a little bit different in that it's sorta beachy and I guess you could say boho even.
I like it.
I like that it is different to something I would usually adorn my door with, and given this year (when I eventually get around to it) I am planning on sticking with white as my main colour in our Christmas decor, this wreath is going to fit my theme as perfectly as my fingers fit cheezels.
Alright, so I admit I may have cheated a little, because this wreath didn't actually start out as a wreath.
It began it's life as a dreamcatcher I made a week or two ago at one of our workshops, and then it just sat around in the warehouse kind of doing nothing.
I kept staring at it and promising I would eventually find it a permanent place to hang and then ... I did nothing and it just continued to sit there looking all lonely and woeful.
A packet of feathers, a hot glue gun and a bit of beach blinging later and lovely people - we have a bohemian inspired Christmas wreath.
The dream catcher part was super easy.
I simply wrapped a metal ring with some cotton fabric strips and then I used leather thonging to attach a crochet doily to the centre of the ring.
It was then a case of hot gluing the feathers all the way around the outside of the ring and some shells on the front and Boom chaka chaka- this little dreamcatcher was pimped up and given a whole new purpose as a Christmas wreath.
Now if you really want to go and get all inspired to create your own gorgeous Christmas wreath, then you need to take yourself on a little blog hopping road trip, because today I am joining up with eleven of my fellow bloggy pals to take part in a Christmas Wreath Showcase.
Yep 12 bloggers and their 12 Christmas wreath creations - that's enough to get your Jingle bells jingling!
