No, wait, it gets better. All the items I bought brand new at Spotlight (a haberdashery and craft store here 'down under'), the only items I had at home was my hot glue gun (and glue of course) and a few extra baubles. I guess Spotlight was having a sale or something 'cause I got everything C.H.E.A.P.
2 metres of ribbon $0.96
16 pc ornament set
Total cost $5.71
I should re-label the heading as Christmas Wreath for a tad over $5.00
I am loving the customised look for much cheaper than mass produced.
This was a project I did with Little Angel. And when you're three, there is no time to wait, so I didn't get great photos of the during - who am I kidding, I didn't get any. Here is a rushed before photo.
Little Angel picked the ornaments to glue, I applied the glue to the back of the ornament, and with Little Angel being very careful, she applied the ornament to the wreath (with a little guideance from me).
We measured the ribbon length and tied and glued it to the wreath (the knot is hidden at the back of the wreath).
We then made a bow, and glued it to the front.
We installed it to the door using an upside down Command hook on the inside of the door.
By the way I picked up some 12 clear glass baubles for $5.00. I am not sure what to do with them yet, but I love some of the looks that people are coming up with in blog land.
