vintage ornament wreathDo you ever get so crazzzzzy obsesssssed with something that you lose an entire week of your life? Call me binge-crafter, because this week I could barely focus on anything but ornie-hoarding so that I could make more of these vintage ornament wreaths using Georgia Peachez’ instructions. C.R.A.Z.Y. As in: I could barely concentrate on the blog (ask Kate, she’ll tell you) while I scoured all of Berkshire County for vintage Christmas ornaments. I’ve been buying from ebay and etsy, too. Argh. Mid-November is not the right time to hunt for vintage ornaments, too much competition from similarly obsessed, late-planning crafters. Have a great weekend. Me? I hot glue, therefore, I am. Tune back in on Monday for more info, photos and tips to come from my DIY session making this wreath, which turned out F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S.

    Beautiful work, Pam! I’m digging your color choices. I’m going to be making one too! (Gotta get out my xmas box after my move this weekend.) Thanks for the inspiration. Is there a place where folks can upload their wreaths when they’re done? I’d like to see everyones creations.

    We have so many ornaments mostly vintage, we can’t use them all despite having two Christmas trees, so I probably have enough for a wreath. But, with teaching and final exams coming up there is pretty much no time to work on the wreath. Maybe this is the year I finally do it.

    Beautiful wreath, Pam!

    I like the colors you chose – frosty aqua is always “Christmas green” to me because my Grama has one of those ceramic trees with the little bulbs, all done in aqua. My family had one too, but ours was a more traditional shade of green; her tree always seemed more magical.

    I too have been hoarding vintage ornaments – and was happy to find knee-hugger elves at my Hobby Lobby!!!

    Pam, please contact me via e-mail regarding the restored Ruth Paine Home of Irving, Texas and its link to the JFK assassination, the 50th anniversary of which is this upcoming Friday.

    Yeah, we had snow last week and a devastating tornado on Sunday! Its hard to stay in Holiday DIY mode with wild swings like this.

  6. Just found out about these wreaths!! I am so impressed with Georgia Peachez!!! I want to try to make one too! Yours turned out great! Such a fun and cheery holiday deco piece!
