Show and Tell Monday

I'm trying my hand at making a glass Christmas ornament wreath and I can certainly see why these are pricey.....a lot of time goes into making one! (Not to mention burned fingers from the glue gun...ouch!) Here's a picture of my attempt....I still have some embellishing to do but you see the direction I'm going with it. This one is way too fragile to consider mailing so I will sell it from the brick and mortar Cozy Cottage. I made this one on a wreath form but I am going to try my next one on a heavy cardboard form and see how that works. One thing I know for sure.....this is not going to be my creative niche....I'll leave that to the experts!

I love it! I have a tip for you,use the twisted branch wreath as a base. It gives you places to put the neck of the ornament. Put the hot glue on the neck an just start tucking them in all over the place. Then fill in with the flowers. You did a great job. Lilli

Debbie,

Very pretty wreath. I am sure they will do very well in your B&M.

You are right about burning your fingers on the hot glue. Keep a bowl of cool water nearby when hot gluing. I have blisters all over my fingers.
