I finally got around to finishing my Christmas wreath that I started last week. I managed to get it all wrapped in an hour while watching NCIS. I went to Spotlight the very next day to buy some ric rac to finish it off but they had none. None! No red, no green, no white! I was a bit bummed out. So yesterday when we went to Ikea I ducked into the Spotlight next door to see if they had any ric rac and luckily they did.
It is a pretty simple wreath and was super easy to make. All in all it took an hour and a half of crafting time. It was also super cheap! The wreath I bought in the sales last year for $2, the yarn was in my stash, the ric rac cost $1.50 and the ornaments came from K-mart for $2 each. Total cost = $9.50. Pretty good considering the wreaths in the shop are selling for at least $20.
I am so happy with the wreath and my house is kind of starting to look like Christmas. I am not allowed to put our tree up until after Corey's birthday which is this Thursday so hopefully next week it will be up and decorated. I can't wait!
