I have been dreaming up this wreath for awhile and was waiting for the moment when I'd have a chance to sneak away to my craft room and try it out. I wasn't sure if my idea to use a combination of snowflake ornaments and white lights for the wreath would work - but it did! I'm so excited about how it turned out and it couldn't have been easier to make.
The great part of this wreath is that it is made up of snowflake ornaments from the dollar store. All of the snowflakes used on this wreath were $1 or less each. Some you can purchase in a pack of 10 for a $1. I bought these over the last couple years to use on my Christmas tree, but this year I switched up the look of the tree and wanted to find a new use for the ornaments.
This is my first experiment with a lighted wreath, and I love the soft glow it provides over our fireplace. Luckily it looks just as pretty and delicate during the daytime!
