Last Christmas came and went so quickly.
This year I’m making sure I don’t miss it.
I’ve been decorating and baking and listening to Christmas carols.
(And not the just the awful CD they play at work. The good stuff.)
Here’s a Christmas craft that I’ve been working on, and the great part is it only cost me $3 to make!
The inspiration for this came from this pin on Pinterest.
I took garland, a mini chalkboard and a felt ornament that I bought at the Dollar Tree and turned it into a cute mini wreath that I’m quite pleased with!
I took some gold paint that I already had on hand and painted the green plastic of the chalkboard.
I originally had written out”Joy” with just the chalk, but then I decided that I like the look of a metallic marker better.
After the paint and the ink had dried, I used my hot glue gun and glued the chalkboard to a cardboard circle that I cut out of a shoe box.
The next step was to glue the garland around the sides of the chalkboard.
Finally I took the felt ornament and glued it to the garland and added some twine to the back to hang it up.
It was that simple and now I have a cute little wreath to brighten my space!
