On the Fourth Day of Christmas....

my true love gave to me....wreaths inspired by Pleated Poppy.
OK, first- I'm sure you noticed, my *true love* didn't actually give me any of these things thus far. They are my crafty Christmas creations...just go with it.

In case you missed the amazingly fabulous wreath the Pleated Poppy made for her front door, fear not- I re-created and ran with it!

Here is the yarn ball-sparkle ornament-crazy-pink-purple-red-turquoise-white-silver-and-every-other-color-under-the-sun wreath hanging on the girls' bedroom door.

Please pay no attention to Red- our Elf on the Shelf elf- he was so excited about the new addition to the hallway he rested here for the day!
After falling in love with the bright pink version Lindsey made, I realized this fabulous wreath could easily be re-done for a more traditional Christmas look-
Luckily for me, Target still had a few $2.50 metallic wreaths in their dollar spot!

This green, red, and silver beauty is now hanging on our master bedroom door

I promise those balls are not gold, it's just the lighting in the hallway at night.

Don't the yarn balls add just the right amount of texture?
And because my shop (aka the Surprise room) door couldn't be empty- I had to make a Georgia wreath.

All red, black, silver, and white was a little tougher, but I think it turned out great.

The wooden 'G' I painted earlier this fall sits nicely inside to complete the Georgia Bulldog Christmas decor.

I can't decide which is my favorite!
Which do you like best?
Wait until you see what I came up with for a few's too early to spoil the surprise now.
More to come...

Beautiful! I love these yarn wreaths... and my husband would love the GA one, haha! Thanks for linking up to our YARN IT ALL party! :]

Love them! I think I may need to do one like the traditional Christmas colored one. The GA would be popular here if it was green and gold with the same G in the center - for GB Packers. :)
