SEQUIN WREATH – DIY

by gemcamille

DEAREST

 

CHRISTMAS IS FAST APPROACHING, AND I FINALLY GOT MY TREE. EVEN IF, MUCH TO THE HUSBANDS AMUSEMENT IT TOOK ME OVER AN HOUR TO PICK WHICH ONE I WANTED…IT’S A BIG DECISION RIGHT!?   SO TREE IS UP, AND THIS YEAR I HAVE GONE FOR A SIMPLISTIC CHRISTMAS. BLACK, WHITE AND SILVER. BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD GLAM IT UP A LITTLE BIT WITH THIS SEQUIN WREATH. IT IS SERIOUSLY EASY TOO.

SO HERE YOU ARE! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
