last Christmas

Last year at this time I stocked up on vintage ornaments.
How could I resist these in my favorite shade of pink?
I used a hot glue gun to glue the tops of the ornament on and then wired them onto a frame.
These photos don't do it justice. The combination of all of the different colors and textures are so beautiful.
I made this after Christmas so I am excited to use it this year.
I did learn a few things. Next time I would use something flat (the ornaments like to slide to the back of this frame). I also learned that a little mouse was fond of some of the thread covered ornaments.

I am so excited to make some more goodies with my growing stash of ornaments. Does anyone have a glue that they love? Sometimes I get frustrated that my hot glued items pop off.

Yeah, I learned the hard way, too, that Christmas stuff stored in the attic, especially if made from natural materials like acorns and nuts (duh!), needs to be in rodent-proof containers.

Your wreath is an inspiration. I might try one on a flat wooden base. It might call for fewer ornaments, but I'll still aim for that lush look.
