Snowball and Cotton Boll Wreath

I'm decorating for Christmas earlier than usual this year because we're going out of town for a week the day after Thanksgiving. I'm excited about visiting family and at the same time anxious because it's a whole weeks setback. I'm sharing my first Christmas project now because I'll be away and I don't think I'll be taking my computer.

 This year I'm doing a snowy woodland winter. I thought a snowball wreath would work well with that theme.However  the thought of making tons of pom poms by hand was not appealing to me so I bought two large bags of white pom poms in assorted sizes and glued them to a Styrofoam wreath that I first covered with an old white sheet torn into about one yard strips.

I glued on a few cotton bolls for a little extra texture and because they're pretty and remind me of snow balls.

 I added a little silver glass glitter to the husk of the cotton bolls for a little sparkle.

 I bought the chalkboard print from Dear Lillie to use on my buffet but I thought it made a pretty back drop for my wreath. You'll be seeing more of that later on. Thanks for stopping by. I'll have a few quick and easy projects to share later. I'll be linking up with these ladies this week,

In Memorium

 Paris our beloved fur baby has departed this earth, She was our little ray of sunshine for twelve wonderful years. Paris had one mission in life and that was to love and be loved. She was the most gentle  and loving dog I've ever known. She displayed no signs of illness and left this earth gently, the very same way she lived.She went to sleep on Thursday evening November 6th and slipped away early Friday morning November 7th. We are crushed and our home has a large hole in it. We are grateful for the 12 wonderful years of unconditional love and joy she bought our family. She is and always will be, deeply missed.
