Christmas wreath for entry..

last week while visiting Floreria Lee in Mcallen I fell in love with a wreath I saw. It was a little plain,and felt it needed that extra pizazz, so I bought a glittery Poinsettia flower, and some glue took it home next thing you know, I was in my alley looking for dried twigs....

First thing I did was pull out my handy dandy glue gun and glued this flower to the wreath.
And here is how that looked... still kinda of plain...

Lucky for me someone had just pruned a tree.

I started out by gluing the twigs to the wreath, but you have to work REALLY FAST and work near an outlet to unplug really fast, otherwise the glue runs! After a few squirts of glue on my table, I decided why not just stick them in the wreath ....

And so I did! very carefully...I loved the way the wreath was looking, so I kept making trips out to my alley looking for curvy twigs that would curve to both right and left.

Loved how natural it was looking..

This is the the final outcome next, it was time to add some finishing touches to the table.

Found this deer antler in my moms back room storage, I thought would be a perfect addition...

You can never go wrong with a bowl of Christmas potpourri. The smell is out of this world..
And lets not forget old St Nick..

The reason for the season..

I hope you are having as much fun as I am decorating this holiday season!
