Makeover Monday: 11/12

~*~
 For Nana's wreath, we chose a varied size mix of newer and vintage balls in cranberry, subtle gold, and white.  A few of the white balls have holly sprigs painted on them in traditional red and green.
~*~
I glued the tops on, Mike formed the hanger, and Sophie put them on in the order she thought would look best.

Finished it off this morning with a bow made from glittered golden tulle.  She really lights up a room!  I think this would look especially stunning on Nana's mantle... what do you think, Nans?

Beautiful! I love the colors! If Nana doesn't like it, send it my way and make her another one :o)

Was this one easier to do?

Jennie said...

Thanks, Ladies!

Karen- in a word- YES! I think between your tips and what I learned from doing the first one, this one was much easier. I now have the balls for wreath #3- literally and figuratively, lol!!!
