Tweak it Tuesday #169

Well I don't have anything quilt-y or knit-y or cross stitch-y to show at the moment. I'm working on several super secret Christmas gifts which I can't show but I do have a crafty project to share that I tweaked a bit.



This may quite possibly be the easiest wreath EVER to make. First you need a wire frame...



you can get one like this at Micheal's or Joann's or Hobby Lobby for around $5.00.


Then you need a package of multi- color garland tinsel like this...


which is $6.00 at Target and you can see the link here.

You unfasten the garland from the cardboard header and simply wind it around the wire frame over and over and over and over and over and over and stop and untwist it and continue over and over and over and over and stop and untwist it and over and over and well you get the idea. You tuck the ends into the back of the wire frame, easy peasy. Then you can suspend an ornament or two from a pretty piece of ribbon or twine and tie then onto the frame... DONE! You probably spent more time shopping for the materials than you did making this wreath.

I love the look of it... all shiny and colorful and I like that it is a square rather than the traditional circle. I've been working on decorating my house and I'll show more of it later in the week. I don't think I've EVER started this early to decorate for Christmas. Usually it is the 15th or later and I'm just getting the stuff out of the basement. I even have my Christmas shopping well in hand...thank you Lord for the internet... I LOVE online shopping. I do hope that my early success in these Christmas-y endeavors doesn't mean that I'm going to be down with a cold or flu and lose a week... oh ever the optimist aren't I? LOL

I'm linking up with Brenda's Cozy Little House blog... check it out... lots and lots of great ideas.

happy stitching-
carol fun
