Wreath of Balls

Remember when I couldn't figure out how to finish this wreath? Ya'll gave me great suggestions. I had decided to use little balls to fill in gaps and then Sandra (who has the most interesting blog - we went to college together and now she lives in China with her son and husband - check her out!) suggested the same thing.
It took me forever but I finally finished it - this morning before I came to work. Yes, I was hot gluing balls between make-up and my drying my hair - but I wanted to have it finished for tonight.
Here is a fuzzy picture of where I hung it - on our TV cabinet. I like how it turned out but it took me forever. I don't think I'll be making them for the craft fair anytime soon. :-)

You've gotten very crafty! This is how I usually end up finishing projects, if I end up finishing them at all...at the last minute while I multi-task on 3 other things at the same time. I'm going to steal your Christmas ornament idea and your wreath idea. They are so cute. And good gift ideas!

LOVE it!!! I might have to make my own wreath next year!!! I should probably start now though b/c I doubt I'll find the time or the desire to it next holiday season!

This turned out great! I'm sure it was time-consuming, but it looks like it was worth it--it looks great where you hung it. Can't wait to see pics from the party tonight. We have our Bible study party tonight too at our leaders' house. I'll hopefully remember to take pics there.

Gorgeous! I love where you hung it too. And that entertainment center is fabulous! It totally reminds me of my much smaller buffet. I love black furniture! Great job!

Kelly--you're going to LOVE the camera. I have one just like it, and it's my second one. My first one died after my daughter dropped it last spring, but it lasted 4 years and I loved it so much that I bought a newer model. My favorite things about it are the display panel on the back (so big!) and the fact that I can stick it in my pocket. Enjoy your early present.

Sounds like your party was fun! You cracked me up with the coffee punch recipe. Two cartons of ice cream, a whole bottle of chocolate syrup and SKIM milk! LOL.
