Nut Wreath

This is the time of year I get inspired to challenge my crafting skills. I do it simply because I enjoy it!  Since I've been a little girl, I've always enjoyed "making things" and that hasn't changed a bit now that I'm an adult.When I'm creating, I'm relaxing.  But with two little guys running circles around me, I have minimal time to indulge the left side of my brain.  I really have to pick and choose my projects.  

There are so many beautiful creations out there in blogland.  Most of them I look at and say to myself, "Isn't that cute?" and then there are those that I say to myself, "I must do that! !"   So, here is my spin on this gorgeous creation made with nuts, berries and pine cones.  I absolutely adore the organic, natural look of this wreath and it can be used throughout both fall and winter.  It took me about an hour to complete this project and piecing the nuts together was similar to putting together a jigsaw puzzle.  It was actually quite fun!  All you need is a Styrofoam form, glue gun, ribbon, nuts and and any other trimmings that suit your fancy!

I found this bag of mixed nuts at my local Publix.  One wreath required one and a half 16 oz. bags.

  Start with placing the ribbon around the wreath.  Secure with hot glue.

Secure pine cones, faux berries, nuts and any other trimmings with hot glue!

I gathered some (free!) acorns (again) from my neighbors driveway to fill in any gaps.  I love my neighbors.

Voila!  A beautiful nut wreath complete with "pine cone bow!"  If you have any questions on how to make your own, I'd be more than happy to answer them!

Next on my list is a kissing ball because everyone needs extra kisses during the holidays, right?
