Birdhouse Christmas Wreath

Hello there! Anyone still finishing handcrafted Christmas projects? (I am lol.) I got some baking done today too. ;-) I'm delegating gift wrapping to my husband! Anyway, I was tired of my old door wreath so I finally got around to making myself a new one. I found a cool twig wreath base online and went from there.

I picked up various foliage picks from the craft store and pulled them apart to use for all the greenery and burlap leaves. The birdhouse and red bird are both dies from Eileen. They make it really fast and easy to put these guys together! I adhered my patterned paper to the mat board before I cut the parts out. (For the bird I glued red cardstock onto both sides of the mat board. The birdhouse I distressed a bit with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added the wreath around the hole and some Industrious Sticker borders. I also smeared some Rock Candy Stickles on parts of it to give it some sparkle.

Once the house and bird were done and dry I just went to town with my hot glue gun and all the foliage parts. It was easy! It only took me an evening to make this up.

close up!

Thanks for stopping by and Merry Christmas! I wish peace and joy for you all (and not crazy busyness!)

I'm also entering this into the 'Anything Goes' December Challenge over at Emerald Creek Dares. Have you seen the sneak peek at the cool embossing powders they've teamed up on with Seth Apter?? I can't wait to see the full reveal at Creativations! =)
