A Snowball Wreath

     You know how it is, when you take all that Christmas stuff down and everything looks so bare! I'm not one to delay the restoring of order after Christmas. I'm actually a little behind this year by waiting until the 28th to take the tree down! But once I had it finished I knew I needed to do something a little more festive for this snowy season. {At least its supposed to be snowy, we haven't seen much of the white stuff lately}



     Once the outdoor decor came down, I wanted to do something for the front door, something snow ballish! While I was out grocery shopping at good ole Meijer this morning I came across this burlap wrapped foam wreath and knew it would be the perfect base.



     For the snowballs I used two different colors of yarn and rolled them into little balls.  These were just hot glued into place. The flowers were made with a few different techniques that I will explain in detail tomorrow (or Saturday, we have a little girls birthday party to throw tomorrow night).



     The spirals were ornaments that I found at the grocery store on 75% off, only .37 cents each! Ya can't beat that! ;) I'm all for a bargain!!!






     Have you started the after Christmas purge?  The process always motivates me to rearrange and freshen things up! Now if only the laundry and little people messes didn't slow me down! {That's ok, at least they're cute!}
