ornament wreath

image from whitney smith

i click on it once or twice a day.
i stare at it.
the wreath.
the mirror.
the tiny trees.
the room i can see in the reflection.
i love it.
i want to bring it to life.

i think i should step it up this year and make my own cool christmas wreath.
everybody's doing it.
(anyone want to send me some acorns from their backyard? i have a walnut tree... with no walnuts.)

It just so happens that I recently made one of those darling ornament wreaths, and it was super easy. Here is a little hint hot glue the tops of the ornaments to the ornament before stringing them. I couldn't get the tops of mine off so I figured I didn't need to glue them...but surely and slowly a few started to pop off! lol
