oh deer - A wreath DIY

Yesterday it officially went from fall to winter.  With the fresh new blanket of snow on the ground I am jumping out of fall early and getting excited to start decorating for Christmas.

While browsing through Target I just happened to find myself in the Christmas corner. I got so excited when I found these cute little deer sitting in the $3 bin. You all know how much I love deer, so of course I grabbed them all and used one of them for a cute little wreath for our front door, a nice transition from fall to winter.

To make a wreath using a ornament I started by  using a thin glitter trim to tie my deer to my wreath. Wire would also work.  I also sprayed my wreath with some glitter spray to give it a little extra glitz. Be careful with the glitter spray. It can make a big mess. I usually spray it in a box or out in the garage!!!

After the deer is in place I added some fake greens. You can find these at any crafty store.  They come on a big stick. I just simply pulled a few off for this project.

I then layered in some berries. I found it helpful to add a little hot-glue to these to keep them from sliding round.

Most of all, this project is pretty budget friendly. I was able to do 6 wreaths using stick of greens and berries. I think this will make the perfect hostess gift for Thanksgiving!!
