Golden Star Wreath

Wow, tomorrow is Thanksgiving- it makes me sick how fast time goes by. I started an intense diet about a week ago (I know it isn't really good timing). So no mashed potatoes or  pumpkin pie for me... oh, it is sooooo tragic. I cut out carbs and sugar... well except fruit- I don't think it is right to count fruit as a carb. Anyway to get my mind off the tasty delights, I have been crafting. I decided to make a wreath, my first ever wreath. I really like the process I'll have to make some more.

 So I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off going to craft stores and the dollar store trying to find just the right materials to make my wreath. I got home late and couldn't wait to put it all together.

I cut up strips of sheet music and glued them to a wire frame. Then I painted some wooden stars gold with brown edges to give it a shabby chic look. I glued on the painted stars ans some glittery ornamental stars.

 I really thought it would look great to incorporate tea lights in the wreath that way the glitter would really sparkle. So I wrapped wire around some upcycled baby food jars and secured them to the wire frame. That way the jars could hold little tea lights.

I tied a ribbon around the top and spiraled it around the wreath, and BAM- Christmas wreath!

Now my advice I leave you with: if you want to watch your weight this holiday season, distract yourself with crafting. Have a happy Turkey Day!
