Vintage Frame Layered Wreath + Holiday Craft Link Party

Last week I linked up with The Southern Hospitality blog with the holiday link up party. I showed you all my great room mantel. This week I am linking up with Kate over at The Centsational Girl for her Holiday Craft Link Up . I am pretty excited to show you one of my latest diy projects.

This project was kind of an accidental happening. It started with this styrofoam wreath. I bought it intending on doing a wreath that I saw on Pinterest. So I made this wreath with yarn. Then it was what do I do with this? Well...I then saw these snowflake ornaments that I bought at a garage sale. Someone had a Christmas wedding and sold all of their decorations. I got about 70 of these snowflakes for about $5. I layered a couple with the marvelous hot glue gun. Added a glass bead for the cherry on top. THEN...I was cleaning out my apron closet and I found this antique frame that I had forgot that I had purchased from an estate sale this summer. It was just the frame. So I took the frame and painted it with glitter spray paint. Which I might an addicting invention. I mean...glitter AND spray paint combined...LOVE! I put up the frame...then I added the wreath. My front entry way doesn't get much light...and I just felt like it needed something else. So I took it to our local glass repair company. For $11 they make a mirror for the frame. Now this project is perfect in its completetion! Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to go digging through the link ups and see what others have created!
