DIY Christmas Wreath!

Thank you for all the wonderful holiday color schemes idea from yesterday. I knew I could count on you for inspiration and creativity! From metallics and brights, to ivories and gold, to Tiffany's blue and copper, I have lots of new ideas turning in my head!

As I was blog surfing last night I came across this perfectly adorable silver ornament wreath made by Jeannine at Small and Chic in Cville. She made it using Eddie Ross' DIY guide, which you can find right here. I love this as an alternative to the traditional holly wreath. It's a great way to add some color and incorporate your holiday scheme into more parts of your decor!

What do you think? This looks too easy and too cute not to try! I think I know what I'll be doing this weekend.

Very nice indeed, and perhaps even nicer still in blue and copper, since you mention it.

omg, I love it, love it, love it! I've been looking through Martha S. for a DIY christmas wreath, but none of them really struck me as what I wanted. THIS is it! Thank you, thank you!

I have seen so many bloggers make these, and they all look great. I have a silver & gold one but I didn't make it myself. Can't wait to see what you do!

I have always wanted to make one of these, but never got around to doing it. I even collected alot of different glass vintage balls at antique stores, but I ended putting them in a large glass vase instead. Yours is very beautiful.

perfect for thrifting a bunch of mismatched ornaments - or using the ones we haven't broken over the years....
