My motto during this decorating season is: "keep it simple, Sugar!"

Days ago, I spied a DIY 5 minute tinsel garland wreath and I thought, jeepers creepers! I could do that. So I moseyed myself down to my local thrift store one chilly night and found my essential props: an extra large embroidery hoop and a lengthy string of tinsel.

Carefully wrap the fragile metallic garland around the entire hoop, add a little pom pom* for extra cuteness, and whoomp! there it is.

Easy peasy right?! But it gets cost? $3.98. And I have an extra loop of tinsel for future use. Say whaaaaat?!

Doesn't it just speak, wreath out and touch me? (I'm a sucker for puns. But who isn't really?)

[ *Instead of using wax paper as suggested, I made my pom with good old tissue paper. And it hasn't lost its puffiness yet. ]


  1. Very cute! You are a "mini" Martha!!

  2. Why...just because of her insider trading scandal?

  3. I bow down to your pun fun. You've got a whit like no other! Love the cost and love that it's a little shimmer of the vibe going on in inside your house! Love it!!

  4. Looks like a perfect wreath for party people! Can you dig it? We can dig it!

  5. Fun! I'm liking the bright blue. Can't beat that price either!!
