Shiny Brite Wreaths

I love, love, love Shiny Brite ornaments.  I pick them up whenever I can find them.  Last year I made a wreath.


The other day my Mum and I went to an estate sale.  We scored a ton of Shiny Brites.  Earlier this year she also found a treasure trove of them at an auction.  We decided it was time to sit down and make some more wreaths.


It's hard to get pictures that do these justice.  Most of my walls are a warm golden color and wash out the ornaments.  So pardon the kitchen clutter you see here!

Even after making these we still have a ton more.  The problem is I like them all and don't want to give them up.  How many wreaths can one girl justifiably hang in her house?

  9. Oh wow, they are ALL amazing!!! I have a small collection of these types of ornaments in a vintage candy jar (like you'd find in a dime store) that I display them in but I don't have near enough for one of these beautiful wreaths. I'm going to keep my eye out for more cause I just have to make one of these!

  20. I love your wreaths! I, too, have a dream about creating a sparkly, glittery wreath someday. I collect pink ornaments whenever I find them. Would you be willing to share how you put your wreaths together? I'd love some help in knowing how to create such beautiful Christmas wreaths. Thanks for considering and have a very Merry Christmas!
