What started out as a hopeful holiday craft project has taken on a life of its own. I have always loved decorating for the holidays but this year I have been especially excited. I decided I wanted to jump on the create a vintage ornament wreath band wagon. So, I have been collecting ornaments for the past several months with this goal in mind.
I have found them at estate sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. I was especially lucky to purchase several of the ornaments from a dealer who had just cleaned out her parents attic and was getting ready to put them up for sale. I just love when vintage piece, price and buying opportunity all come together!
Here is the wreath I created for my front door.
This is when my project took on a life of its own. I had some left over ornaments and decided I would make one for my shop to sell. I thought maybe I could make back my cost for my own project. I received some positive feedback and because I had such a fun time making them I made 3 more! I know, you don't have say it, it's crazy! At least you have something to look at and I had a good time making them :) My only problem now is what should I do with them? Should I sell them? What do you guys think a fair price is? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
