Yes, I said balls.  Christmas balls to be specific.  A few weeks ago my neighbor came over and we made a Christmas wreath out of balls.  I'm sure you've all seen these out there, in the stores and on the Internet.  If you haven't made one, I highly recommend it.  It was super easy and a lot of fun.  It only took us about an hour and a half, now that was with both of us working on one wreath.  We started with a foam wreath form that was 18" around and flat on the back and started hot gluing the largest sized balls to the form.  Then we slowly filled in with medium balls and finally small balls.  (huh, that last one makes me laugh)
Here's the finished product.  Leah, my neighbor, had both shiny and matte balls (huh that makes me laugh too).  We just messed around with them until they looked right.  Isn't this cute?  I love it! 
Just a couple of close up pics.  I think this would look really cool with a bunch of balls all in the same color, but with all shiny and matte.  Does that make sense?  I may have just confused myself.

I've been busy shopping the last couple of days, buying supplies to make paper craft goodies for the girls classrooms for the holidays.  Lots of crafting going on in the upcoming days.  What's up with you guys?

I'm excited for tomorrow's post, I finished up my Christmas notebooks!!  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
