The Pixie Cottage Holiday Home Decor

The challenge this week at The Pixie Cottage is a little different.  We want to see holiday banners, ornaments, etc...  Or if you create a card, it must follow this week's sketch (below) 
I made this little wreath by stringing a bunch of jingle bells onto wire.  The bow and curly tendrils are 1/4 metal strips I cut and curled.  Few nicks on the fingers while manipulating it because the metal edges are sharp, but it turned out pretty. The leaves were in my stash, and I swiped a cotton ball with Distress Ink over them to give them a patina.  I colored "To Santa From Buffy", available at Michelle's Scrapbooking, with Copics, cut around the image and suspended it in the center of the wreath.  I have this hanging on the inside of my front door.  Now I hear a pretty jingly sound when someone opens the door and there's no more sneaking up on me. :)

Stamps:  To Santa From Buffy by The Pixie Cottage.

Love the wreath - it looks bright and fun - sometimes I think a traditional wreath can look a bit sad if you know what I mean.
Best wishes, Sharon
