12 days of Christmas Bloghop- day 7

Hello dearies!  Are you Christmased out yet?  Because I'm not- I still have several awesome projects to show you!!

I'm the type of girl who loves a lot of traditional Christmas and country Christmas things.  (if you couldn't tell from previous projects.)  I'm not the type who likes crafts that looks like the north pole exploded in my home.  That just... ugh.  Today's wreath is a take on both traditional and modern.  It looks pretty darned elegant if you ask me.

How gorgeous is that?  SUPER easy to do, you just need a TON of balls- and that's where the Dollar Tree comes in (shocker, I know.)  I ended up needing like 6 packs of Christmas balls- the 12-25,  but seriously- another pretty frugal project.  I did this is red and gold because my door is green.

Here's what you need:

1 wire hanger (thinner is better) and THANK YOU Donna for giving me yours- I didn't have any!
6 (or so) packs of 12-25 Christmas balls, various sizes- color depends on you.
Wired ribbon to match to cover the hanger.

Untwist the top of the hanger and form it into a circle, keeping the hook part of your hanger..  String on the balls and bunch them on so that the top part is hidden.  after all of your balls are on, form the other side to make a loop and put it around the "neck" of your hanger.  cover with ribbon.  TADA!

Here's a youtube video on how to do it if you get a little lost. :)

And last question- what kind of Christmas are you?  Traditional?  elegant?  Christmas threw up on my house?  Happy hopping and I'll see you tomorrow!!
