So this weekend, I spent a LOT of time in the frou frou Little Rock decor stores my mother and I adore - such as Silks-A-Bloom, Phoenix Interiors, Austin's, Claybourne's, and Pazzazz. And I was bombarded with the over-the-top Christmas decorations that I love, envy, and assumed I could never afford. Until...I noticed they were selling everything you needed to make all of it. And it wasn't that expensive. So I bought some large ornaments, about $5 each, some swag, and 10 yards of the floral decor mesh and thought I'd give it a try. Below is the end result, hanging on my mom's door.
Pretty awesome, huh? The wreath itself was half off at Hobby Lobby. I wound the decor mesh through it, added the ornaments, made the bow, and voila! They sell these wreaths for $250-300, and I made this one for just under $100. Not half bad! So of course I went back and spent another hundred, because one is never enough, and made this little beauty:
I don't think that one is quite done, but it's close. It will hang on the window behind the reindeer. And I still have enough leftover to do garland over our fireplace! I am so excited to get back home and finish decorating! More pics to come, I hope, if the fireplace turns out as well as the wreaths!
