wreaths

i caught the coffee-filter-music-sheet wreath bug.
they really are simple to make!
AND...
look lovely!
i made the coffee filter wreath without know where i was placing it.
 it hung for a while on the elk antlers,
and a few other strange places.
eventually, out of sheer desperation,
 i hung it over the laundry-leading-to-the-garage door for the Christmas House Tour.
perfect!
it filled a blank i didn't know was there.

i like!
aren't her ruffles pretty?
 after stitching a ring on the end,
a screw on the other side of the door keeps the upholstery tape (a thrift find) in place,
 and...
- ta-da -
 there she hangs!
(LOVE those ruffles!)
now when i walk through the kitchen into the laundry,
this is what i see!
truely like!
(maybe, just maybe...i'll do a white one!)

*****************
after talking to this talented gal who follows blogs...
(but doesn't blog herself)
 i knew i was ready to try the sheet music wreath.
 
i glued a bull's eye mirror in the center.
both are very easy to make!
i found most of my sheet music at a local thrift shop,
and am eager to do more projects with it...
after the New Year!

...blessedness!

I really like the sheet music wreath! And I'm sure it fits in rather nicely at your house with your sheet music covered tables.

I really like the idea of the mirror in the center of the sheet music wreath. They all look lovely. I purchased the coffee filters but have not had the opportunity to make that one yet.

Very nice wreaths! I've done a sheet music wreath, but have not tried the coffee filter one.
Hope your Christmas was blessed!
