So Gavin and I were at my mom’s house helping to put up the Christmas decorations in early December. While going through all of the ornaments, I kept finding piles and piles of tinsel garland, all different colors. My mom has always loved that tinsel garland, there was already garland on the tree, and there was a lot left over. So my creative brain came up with a plan, I know, scary right? I saw an old grapevine wreath in the basement, and I thought of wrapping the garland around the wreath to make a great holiday decoration. Well, I took all of the leftovers home, much to my husbands dismay I am sure. I just asked him what he thought when I brought home a pile of crafty stuff. He said he hopes I have a plan for it….eventually. I always have a plan, and I love it when a plan comes together.
But I digress. I brought a bag full of garland and the wreath home and dumped it on the living room floor, spewing bits of tinsel everywhere. I plugged in my trusty hot glue gun, and got to work. I started by adhering three strands, one of each color, of the tinsel garland to the wreath. I started wrapping the wreath, only to get halfway around the wreath to find out I was running out of one color. So there is only gold on one side. Then I had to stretch out the white at the end of the wreath because I was out of all of the colors, but I made it work. So the wreath is done, now to determine if it was a genius idea of a craftastic disaster…What do you think? I think it was a great try, but it did not end up like I hoped it would. So its a CRAFTASTIC DISASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Time to glue some ornaments to it and turn it into a decoration for the cemetery for the next holiday. No harm done, and no money out of my pocket.
