Christmas Decorations Blog Hop

**Click HERE for the Christmas Gifts Blog Hop**

Welcome to  the Christmas Decorations Blog hop with Creations with Becka .   If you just happened to stop by to say Hi, then please start at the beginning of the hop over at Creations with Becka . Please make sure you stop by every blog on the list and leave a comment so you are eligible to win the grand prize blog candy- which is a cricut cartridge.
Today we thought it would be fun to showcase Christmas Decorations for the Holiday season. There is a great line up of wonderfully talented ladies who have some awesome decorations to share with you.
I wanted a Christmas Wreath to hang on my front door.   I have tons of Christmas paper that was screaming for me to roll it up and glue it to a piece of cardboard!  I love making these wreaths because they are actually pretty quick and super easy.  This is only the 2nd wreath I have made and the total time spent on this project was about an hour-and-a-half.

Supplies needed:
A piece of cardboard cut into a circle (about 11" in diameter)
8 pieces of 12"x12" paper- (5 pieces will be cut 6"x6"  and the other 3 pieces will be cut 4"x4")
Ribbon
Christmas ornaments
A Hot Glue Gun 
Directions:
First take the 6" pieces and roll into a cone shape- staple the pointed end to hold it together.
Glue each cone to the cardboard circle- leave about a 7" circle in the center.
Next take the 4" pieces and do the same- gluing them just over the bottom layer.
Glue ornaments in the center opening and tie ribbon around tops of ornaments.
I also laced a sheer ribbon through the paper cones and added a poinsettia to add some texture.
That's it- easy peasy!  You can add whatever you like and dress it up to fit any decor!
