On the fourth day of Christmas Beyond The Picket Fence showed us all...a shiny wreath made of Christmas balls. A few years ago I showed you a fall wreath that I had added a silver plated platter to.
I decided I wanted a Christmas wreath that also had a great reflective shine to it. I know you have seen lots of Christmas ball wreaths--but the silver plated platter as the base is a twist I haven't seen.
I pulled out my box of Christmas balls. I pick these up at garage sales and thrift stores--the ideas are endless. See past thing I have done with them here and here. Some of these are old vintage ones, but some just have that great patina from spending a Montana Christmas outdoors.
There was no rhyme or reason--I just used a lot of hot glue and eyeballed it. I will only use it indoors since the hot glue will not do well with the below zero temps. Fun, shiny and made all from things I have on hand.
