|Giant Christmas ornaments do too!|
100+ ornaments, piles of glitter, and more hot glue gun sticks than I can count later...and we have the birthday present sister #1 requested finished and ready!
I started with this:
|Only slightly crazy after hours of hot gluing...|
|That's a lot of ornaments!|
After reattaching all the tops, and letting them dry, I grabbed a wire hanger I had lying around the house. I formed the hanger into a rough circle shape and then untwisted the top. One by one I started putting bulbs onto the hanger. Once it was full I retwisted together the top, glued the blue smaller bulbs and a couple other fillers in place and tada! And now for the final reveal!
Came out looking a little more patriotic than I had hoped for, but hopefully sister #1 will like it. I made a couple of these last year, and she has been asking for one for her apartment even since then. Too bad her birthday falls just outside of the holiday season...at least she will have decorations for next year! Now to find the motivation to finish just one more wreath and get it to B's mom before it's too late...maybe I'll save that one for next year. But now is the time to get the supplies! After holiday sales are the best time for shopping.
Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday, back to the daily grind tomorrow. Ho hum.
