Ho Ho Ho Wreaths...

 These wreaths were a happy accident.  I had wanted to make Christmas ornaments using paper cones.  Well, I rolled the cones way to big, and I wasn't gonna just waste them.  I had to find a use for them, and lucky for me I rolled about 200 of the suckers lovely cones...


Here's a close up.  I made three, all the paper in the centers are a little different, but all red, black and cream.  It was my color scheme for this years decorations. 

This is the only place I could think to hang them, they turned out to be about 17 inches across.  This is why they couldn't be used as ornaments.  I attached ribbon with some hot glue, and TA DA they became wreaths!  The ribbon was $2.40 at Joann's, and every thing else I had.  So not a bad price for three wreaths!

Let me tell you, I may have to make different wreaths to hang here year around.  I love using the curtain rod for more than curtains.  Again another happy accident.

Thanks for stopping by.
