Altered Project: Ornament Wreath (Little Yellow Bicycle)


This wreath was so much fun to alter and embellish! Everything on here, with the exception of the ornaments, is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Once Upon a Christmas collection.

I assembled the embellishment clusters, on my craft table, before attaching them to the wreath with a hot glue gun. Flowers from the Paper Crafting Kit came next and then the remaining spots were filled with tiny ball ornaments. This is definitely a piece I will look forward to hanging up year after year.

Let's take a more detailed look at the different sections on the wreath.

The embellishment cluster on the left side is comprised of journaling cards, a tag and chipboard circles:


This cluster, on the right side, has a journaling card, tag ornaments, a Fresh Verse sticker and a Clear Cut frame:


Here's the flower combo on the left side. I cut apart some silver leaf ribbon by May Arts and tucked it behind the flowers. Isn't the little jingle bell center on the red flower a cute touch? :)


Here are the flowers on the right hand side, again with some silver leaves tucked in behind them:


Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope this idea helped get you in the holiday spirit (if you aren't already, that is). :)
