Homemade Wreath



Hello, Dear Ones!
I wanted to share you a little wreath I've made.
I'm so excited to be attending Debbie's Copy Cat Party!
Bring it on! :)

I'm sure lots of you have seen this little darling wreath.
I first saw it on FaceBook as a giveaway and commented that I wanted it.
Well, needless to say, I didn't win it so the next best thing?
Copy Cat it!

So I took myself to Hobby Lobby and gathered my supplies at 50% off!
Woo Hooness!

First I made a big poofy bow using three wired ribbons.
Next I started to hot glue in the little embellishments. 
I had some little gingerbread ornaments from many years ago 
and thought they'd work just fine and they did!
Poked in some lollipops, curly candy canes, poinsettias and some little red berries.

Now my inspie wreath had a little gingerbread couple.
I couldn't find a couple the right size so I opted for just one little gingerbread person.
I think he's a boy but the main thing is, he can cook!
That's very important you know!

So here's my little copy cat gingerbread man who's a cook wreath!



Pin It
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Gingerbread Man


Gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, 'cause you got
Cookie hands and cookie feet
You so brown and friendly and delicious to eat
Oh, gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, but fella, me not know what to do
'Cause you a cookie and a dolly, too

First me want to hug you like a best friend should
Then me want to eat you 'cause you taste so good
First me want to play with you my whole life through
But me want to put you in me tummy, too

Gingerbread man, me love you
Gingerbread man, me want to eat you 'cause you made of gingerbread
But, no, no, no, me love you so
Gingerbread man, me gonna keep you for a gingerbread friend
And eat oatmeal cookie instead

  24. What a darling wreath you made!! I need to get busy and make one for my front door as the one I've had up for years decided it didn't want to be in the Christmas spirit and fell apart. Thank you for the inspiration. Also, thank you for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world. Wishing you a pretty weekend. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  33. Good Sunday morning Shelia, To answer,your question about the bird hanging on the deck, it is a bird house. My sister Diane gave it to me one year for my birthday. I have never had a bird nest in there but I love that it is a bird. Yes, our mountains are so pretty but not so much in the winter. There are five mountain ranges to view from our deck. This is the upper deck 20 feet high. This is the deck where the bear came to get the bird feeder...twice. That little table and chairs was knocked down but not broken. No more bird seeds now...Sigh!!!

    Happy Sunday to you and your sweet hubs. I am picturing your beautiful decorated home as I write this comment. I love that we were able to meet so much.
    Love, Jeanne
