The beautiful and wonderful Sara at Poppy in Love found this gorgeous wreath from KnocKnocking's Etsy shop. She posted about how she wanted to make one with her own flare. I loved it so much that I totally stole her idea and made one to hang in our home this Christmas. I know, I know I hate people like me that steal good ideas... But, isn't that kind of what the whole blog world is about? :) Anyways, I wanted to keep it pretty similar because the original is just simply stunning. The only thing I did differently was use more traditional Christmas colors and just use my own stuff I found to decorate the left side. I am so happy with the way it turned out. It was really easy to do and ended up only costing like $25 dollars in supplies. I had a lot of the stuff so all I really needed were some fun Christmasy balls and leaves, the styrofoam wreath and this pretty bird I found at Target for like $4! I hope you like!
I just wrapped the foam wreath in yarns I liked. I'm not going to lie. This took like 3 hours lol.
I made all roses for the flowers. I used felted fabric, velvet and a little silk for the flowers and some of the leaves.
I had been searching forever for some special ornaments for us and Oliver:) I wanted a first ornament for our new little addition and I also wanted an ornament to represent our first Christmas as a married couple. I found these at the wonderful place I told you about, William Glen! Both of these ornaments are absolutely perfect! I love the little kitty because he totally looks just like Oliver! The bride and groom swans were my favorite thing in the store. I HAD to have them! I was so excited! I've gone slightly bird crazy this year. I love birds!
