-----------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to be back at Blissful and Domestic for Homemade in December. Thank you so much Danielle for having me again! This is such a fun idea that all these lovely ladies have put together and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be apart of it! Before we get started on a Homemade Christmas Decor, let me introduce myself.
I am Jill and my home is at Two Yellow Birds Decor. There you will find homemade decor, crafts, and recipes. I love to get creative and make things for cheap! My husband is an awesome handy man and helps me with many of my projects!  I love being able to blog and share my ideas with all of you!

Now that you know a little bit about me, how about we get crafting?

I am going to be showing you how to make a darling, sparkly Christmas Wreath today.

It is a yarn wreath so to get started I got a styrofoam wreath at the craft store and some yarn at the Dollar Store. I was so excited for this find! It was so much cheaper to get it there then at a craft store! It was the exact color red I was looking for too. It is a deep red.

I started by wrapping the yarn around the wreath putting it really close together and kind of on top of each other to make it look full. I used a about a roll and a half of yarn.
 When I got to the end I hot glued the piece of yarn on the front side of the wreath. I made sure when I put the embellishments on, it went right over it so you can't see it. Also this way you don't see a big dab of glue on the back side either!
Next, I cut a little piece of yarn and put knots in each end and stitched that on the back so I can hang it up.
Now comes the most fun and hardest part, decorating it with the embellishments!!

I went to Joann's Crafts and Fabrics and found such cute Christmas embellishments and the best part was they were 50% off!!! Most of them cost me between .40 and .50 cents! Good deal for me! Here is a picture of the ones I am using in the wreath today...
I fell in LOVE with them the minute I saw them because they are SPARKLY!! So fun!! (Just a side note: I have shown only 2 green flowers, but I ended up using 3)

The reason this is the hardest part for me is because its hard to get them to lay out just the way I want and for the look I want. It took me a few minutes, but I finally came up with the right fit! To get them on I just hot glued each piece on. I had to hold it down for a few minutes until the glue dried a little bit.

Here is the Christmas Wreath all done...

Here are a couple of pictures of some different angles:

There you have it! A super fun Christmas Wreath!!

Thanks again Danielle for having me for Homemade in December!
