"Jingle Bells' Bright & Cheery Christmas Wreath!

Well... for us out here in Arkansas. 

I know you'd be laughing your head off to think 33 degrees is least most of you would. 
But ack. I am NOT a cold weather girl. 

Though it does make me appreciate my warm bed a whollle lot more :) 
Now if I could only spend more time there!

Did you get a chance to check out my fun Christmas printable I shared yesterday? 
You can check it out here

And I'm back today to share a fun Christmas wreath. 
Because you know I can't let a holiday go by without a new wreath.
Even though this may be my *ahem* eighth or so Christmas wreath. 
I know... I know...there's programs for people like me. 


Check out this little lovely: 

And, yes, it IS my sparkly jingle bells wreath. 
Because I love love love the sparkles that come with Christmas time :) 
Everything glitters & shimmers. 

Here's what ya need: 
*Wreath form (or use my cheap noodle trick from here)
*Red Yarn
*Ornament Balls (Mine were from Michaels) 
*Black Frame (Walmart ornament)
*Sparkly Picks (Walmart- packages of 3) 
*Sparkly Snowflakes (from my stash)
Hot Glue Gun 

Here's my counter in it's usual state of craftiness: 

As with all yarn wreaths, the hardest part is getting it all wrapped. 
Wrap, wrap and wrap some more.
Usually with Vampire Diaries on to keep your mind off your aching arm :) 

After you have it wrapped, arrange your ornament balls the way you want.
I wanted mine to sort of cascade down one side so I arranged them that way. 
I also added my little black frame & sparkly picks right above the balls. 

The frame was easily jazzed up with a piece of chevron fabric and some cute 'Jingle Bell' words from my scrapbooking stash.  

I added my sparkly snowflakes along the other side for some more bling :) 

I twisted some red yarn & white rope together to hang it from and stepped back to bask in the shimmery-ness!! 

I love love love all the colors together. 
I don't use a lot of green in my Christmas decor so I liked having the splash of lime in there. 

What do you think? 
Need a little shimmery goodness in your life too? 

If you're a wreath fanatic like me, you can check out my new 'wreaths' tab on my sidebar for more wreath fabulousness. 
It looks like this: 


I even have a whole Christmas section going on :) 

Hope you guys are having a great week so far!! 
I'll be back verrry soon with awesome pictures from our Hot Cocoa Bar this past weekend! 
Happy Wednesday!
