Christmas Button Wreath

 I received craft materials to create my Christmas Button Wreath from Oriental Trading Company,  and I am delighted to be working in partnership with Oriental Trading Company to bring you today’s tutorial!  

Christmas is never complete in my house without a wreath, at least in my book.  When I told Mellow Man that the package that arrived on my doorstep from Oriental Trading company contained the materials to create a Christmas Button Wreath, he rolled his eyes.  However, I know that fellow crafters out there share my belief that one can never have too many wreaths at Christmas time.  We’ve used Oriental Trading Company at a number of school parties, and even for Vacation Bible School in the past, but I didn’t realize that they had such an awesome selection of crafting supplies.  When I found a giant bag of Christmas Buttons in the store, I knew that I needed to make a Christmas Button Wreath.

Do you love wreaths like I do? Using ribbon, beads and buttons from Oriental Trading Company I created this lovely Christmas Button Wreath that is a wonderful holiday decoration. Sponsored by Oriental Trading Company

Diet Coke Bottle Wreath

I love Diet Coke.  I mean I love it.  I’m sitting here typing these words with a can of Diet Coke next to me.  And here’s the thing– I will only drink Diet Coke. I make restaurant choices based on the type of soft drinks they carry.   Hey, I’m an Atlanta girl, there is no product in this city other than Coca-Cola!  About a month ago, the Mellow Man came home with a 12-pack of Diet Coke cans, and pointed out that there was new design on cans.  If you haven’t check out a Diet Coke bottle recently, you should!  Just like the bottles and cans with names, there is now a new can and bottle design for the “It’s Mine” campaign with Diet Coke.  The cans have this cool tie-dye looking design, but the bottles, now that’s where the true beauty is.  They are all so different, and so colorful.  I decided to collect the 12 ounce bottles (larger than the traditional 8 ounce bottle) to create a Diet Coke Bottle Wreath.

Glittery Christmas Monogram Wreath

Last season, I saw monogram wreaths all over blogs, and I fell in love with them.  Particularly this one. I have an addiction to wreaths.  They are fabulous, and I can’t seem to ever have enough.  Right now, I’m trying to make sure that I can find a place for all of them in my house for this holiday season!  Well, I went to my home away from home local craft store, and looked at stems with berries, and thought it looked like a monogram berry wreath could get to be an expensive venture.  Well, I found these Berry Accents by Darice at Consumer Crafts, and realized that they would be perfect for my monogram wreath!  My Glittery Christmas Monogram Wreath goes nicely in our family room, and we can easily swap it out for our cork monogram

Dots Wreath

Our family loves the candy Dots. MM loves them, I love them, Frog loves them… Monkey hasn’t tried any yet, but he’s played with empty boxes, and he seems to like those.  They are perfect snack candy, and I love that our Target sells the nice sized movie theater boxes for $1.
