So I got this idea from Pinterest, but had to make it my own. Plus, when I purchased the Styrofoam balls, I could have stood another few bags. I got the bags of goods at the handy ol’ Dollar Store. But first the issue was the wreath base. I could not find a round Styrofoam base. Where do all crafters search for stuff-the basement! I was looking around and found one that Sean used as a costume prop when he was a Titanic sailor back about 13 years ago! (I know what you are thinking-pack rat). So anyway, brought that base up, took off the red string and the lettering S.S. Titanic.
I did have to saw off the top to make it easier to pin the snowballs in. The one lady on Pinterest rolled her snowballs in Epsom salts to give them a snowy look, but I was happy with the way mine were. Two near the bottom are from a pick from another wreath. To fill in space, I wound some garland around the snowballs and added the snowflakes. I think it was under $10 to make.
Here’s a few other new things. I got the Cloche’ at Longwood Gardens yesterday for half price. The little ‘boxes’ inside are Monet. They are a little reindeer and gingerbread house.
The pods in the faux berries are Moonflower seeds. In my china cabinet are plaster castings of Sean’s hands we made a number of years ago.
And I am growing an Amaryllis and some Narcissus. I just planted the later and all I had was a pie tin and sea glass-I’ll probably have to find something deeper, but they have no roots on them and were sprouted like this when I bought them. The pinkish salmon Poinsettia is from Terrain.
