I'm Still Copy Catting!

Hello, Dear Ones! Do you love Pinterest? I sure do and I'm sure if you love Pinterest you've seen this most gorgeous wreath! :)

I swooned when I saw it. Well...

Years ago I had seen an episode of Room by Room on HGTV and Shari (oh, how I miss those wonderful shows!) was making one of these wreaths with plastic balls and so I made one for myself. I bought a Styrofoam wreath, wrapped it with white ribbon and began hot gluing on plastic balls that wouldn't break. I bring it out each Christmas. I had a brilliant idea ~

I made my own version of the Pinterest wreath. I didn't have a white wreath so I just took my green wreath outside and sprayed it with white spray paint! Instantly my green wreath was now snow kissed! :) I was loving this stuff!

Then I took my plastic unbreakable wreath and tied it onto my newly white snow kissed wreath!
Oh, I was getting so excited!!

I like lots of color in my home so I knew I couldn't put on a pastel colored ribbon. I grabbed a spool of red sparkly ribbon and went to town making a bow! A big fat sparkly Christmas bow.
Almost done! My last step was to rescue a little birdie who was hiding in a drawer. She's nesting on the red bow now, having a glorious time and whistling "White Christmas"!

I just want you to know ~ I love Blogland too and I'm a copy cat and if I see something of yours I love, I just may copy it too! :) Hope you don't mind. The inspiration is amazing and now there's Pinterest. No wonder I can't get to bed at an appropriate time! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Christmas Time Is Here

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...

  9. Gosh it's beautiful and you are smart to use plastic. My cat broke one of my wreaths with glass balls in the closet a few weeks ago and it was one hot mess but he is okay and that is what is important.

  10. Just delightful, Shelia. You are the creative little thing!!

    I am growing my hair out also....that is until it gets hot again. Ha.

    Big smiles and hugs,
    Barb ♥

    You always do such a fantastic job!!!


  12. Sheila,
    Your wreath is gorgeous!! I love Pinterest and the inspirational photos!
    I miss Room by Room too! It was my favorite show ... wish they would bring it back.

  13. Hi Shelia,
    You are on a roll! I love your wreath and it looks so pretty with your other decor.
    If it weren't for copycatting, I wouldn't come up with anything new! LOL!


  14. You are so creative! Love the wreath, I miss all those shows, too.
    Remember "Design Time Saturday Night"? It was the highlight of the week!
    Love to have you link up at "What's It Wednesday" and share the love.

  15. Wow, that is some wreath you found on Pinterest, Sheila! Just beautiful. Love your copycat! What a great idea to marry two wreaths together! The "snow" looks great.

  16. I've decided you must be a floral designer... everything you touch is so lovely! I love this copy cat wreath...I've admired the one on pinterest for some time as well. Thank you for sharing your lovely wreath with us!

  17. Hello,

    I love it! Wonderful wreaths!


  18. Love it! Yours is even prettier than the original!
    PS I miss Matt and Shari too.And remember Kitty? She was my favorite!

  19. What a great idea. You really have a knack for creating something with your own spin. Your wreath is gorgeous!

  20. Love the wreath, and I think the copy cat link party idea is wonderful because, like you, I'm a copy cat :)


  21. Isn't Pinterest great? You did a beautiful job on your wreath and I like the big red bow! Great job! Hugs, Pamela

  22. Very festive and pretty. People are going to be pinning yours!!


  23. Oh my goodness, Shelia, that is so beautiful, and what a good idea using plastic balls! I may just have to copy YOU!

  24. Your ornament wreath is very festive looking. You did a great job copying the original. I'll tell you a secret. You can buy that canned snow (they sell it at Walmart for around $1/can) and spray anything you want to look snow covered. The best part is that it is cheap and looks very realistic and best of all it is not permanent. So, if you want to wash it off you can (unlike spraypaint). Just thought I'd share that with you.

  25. Stunning! i just love it! great job!

  26. Gorgeous! I've never made one, but am certainly envious. Yes, love Pinterest!

  27. Breathtakingly beautiful wreath and mantle! I'm SO impressed! I'm going to follow you so I know where to come to get those creative juices flowing!!! Thanks for your sweet notes earlier! Made my night! I'd love it if you'd return the "love" on your next visit!!!

    Your New Bloggy Friend,

  28. Well, I certainly agree with everyone here. I think your wreath is gorgeous and better than the original. You have incredible talent. I'm so glad I found you and can't wait to see what's down the line.

  31. You did an awesome job copying the wreath! The idea of spraypainting the green wreath white was pure genious!!! :) Very pretty!
