Wreath on Earth

Wreath on Earth

No doubt you are busily shoveling snow, or frosting cookies, or stuffing stockings, so I’m just popping in with a quick project I wanted to share before taking some time away to enjoy Christmas with my family.  I’ll be back next week with my favorite Better Afters of 2013!

Til then, please enjoy this festive and earth-friendly makeover from Amanda at Mommy is Coo Coo.  She had a big box of burned out Christmas bulbs, but did she let that darken her holiday spirit?  No sir! Did she let it Ebenezer her Scrooge?  I don’t know what that means.  But no!  She turned them into a wreath to enjoy for years to come.   She even painted a few to match her color scheme.  Such a fun use of something that most would consider totally useless.

Looking forward to hearing about your new little one’s arrival, too. Bet you are looking forward to the wonderful Better After when you get to hold him in your arms instead of your belly!

    Can I ask where your couches are from? I’ve been couch hunting for something very similar but am having such a tough time finding what I want!

    Yes, I found them at a furniture store in Phoenix called Pruitt’s. I wish I knew the manufacturer or name of the set but I don’t! Just saw them on display and liked em!
