My Christmas Wreath!

I feel like I've been working on this thing forever! Things just get so crazy and hectic around Christmas that I feel like I'm not getting a thing done! Anyway, someone on the Cricut message board made a similar wreath for Halloween, and the idea just stuck with me so long that I decided to give it a try for Christmas! I purchased the silver wreath at Michael's (with my 40% off coupon, of course!). It is much prettier than it looks like in the photo! The large snowman was also purchased at Michaels, and I painted it white with glitter, tied a red and green snowflake ribbon around his neck, and gave him some silver buttons! I am still thinking about what to do with his mouth, and I want to make him a hat, too! The circles were cut with my George cart at 2 inches with a 2&1/4 inch shadow, and I just alternated the red and green. The reindeer, snowman, santa, tree, and stocking were all cut with Doodlecharms at 1&3/4. The snowflake was also a Doodlecharm, but I cut that at 4 inches since it was a group of 3. The present was cut at 1&3/4 as well with Stretch Your Imagination. Some things were embellished with silver Stickles to tie into the wreath. Sorry about the bad photo! I wish you could see the details better!

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks so much for looking!
