Oh Christmas Wreath….
Oh Christmas Wreath…..
Okay, if you haven’t figured it out yet…..
I LOVE Christmas!!!
and
I LOVE Disney!!!!
So, you know I went all googly eyed when I went to Disney while decorated with all their holiday décor!  Every shop was filled with Christmas decorations that I adored but my husband probably would have had a coronary if he had seen the price tags or the imaginary credit card receipt in my head racking up the goodies!
Instead of bringing home boxes full of overpriced décor I decided to make some of my own…. without the hefty price tag!

Today I’m going to share with you my Disney inspired wreath……

Since I like making new wreaths every year I just reused my Thanksgiving wreath (you can check it out here) and took off all the Fall decorations.

Then, having a fresh plain grapevine wreath I added some Deco Mesh…. have you tried this stuff?  It is AWESOME! I simply wrapped it around the wreath twisting it occasionally and pouffing it up.

Next, I wanted to add some poinsettas…. they’re just so classic and really pull in some great layering!
Now, did you realize that silk flowers have these little notches that make it easier to separate them?  I just discovered this and it made my wreath making sooooooo much easier.

You just find the notch and twist the plant back and forth along the ridge to break it off.
I didn’t even need to secure the flowers—all I did was weave the stems through the grapevine.  Then added greenery around the flowers.
Next I added my sprigs of decorations.
Now for the Mickey inspiration…..

You know how Disney World has hidden Mickey’s everywhere?  Well, I decided to add just a small Mickey to the top of my wreath using this candy sprig I found at Hobby Lobby.
It worked perfectly having the one big piece with the two smaller ones… I just twisted them around to form the correct shape of Mickey’s head and there you have it….

I hope you’ll grab a cup of coffee and visit awhile!
