I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year Celebration! Now what?! I have taken down all of my Christmas decorations and cleaned house and it always feels so spacious after everything is put away. The one thing I don't care for after Christmas is my outside . I always put up sooooooo much stuff that after I take it down it looks so bare and dreary. So this year I decided to make a winter wreath and put up a couple of decorations. I didn't want to put up too much and then have to take it all down again but I did want something to welcome you when you come in the door. I thought since it's winter I would make a snow ball wreath.
 Here's what I did...
Start with a white styrofoam circle and a bunch of snow balls in different sizes ( they're on clearance right now)and some snowflakes


 start  by tying a pretty ribbon at the top and then, using your glue gun, with the largest snowball first start gluing....
then fill in with smaller snow balls...
keep adding more...
I cut some of my snowflakes in half so they looked like they were coming out of the wreath...
I love the way it turned out...
Then I added some ribbon, snowflakes, tule, and a snowman ...
Since this fence is always by the door, it needed a little decoration. I cut out the words using my cricut and simply stuck the letters to some clear tape and taped it to the fence. I even piled some snow around the snowman( or should I say Snow-woman).
 Winter Welcome...
Much better than a blank wall.

What do you think?!
