My Shabby Christmas Wreath

A couple of years ago, I found this wonderful and shabby pink Christmas wreath, that I thought really had some potential. It has sat in my garage since then, up until this week. I finally had my inspiration for it! I striped the wreath down and cleaned it up - then I used a spray adhesive and covered it with Martha Stewart glitter. I made 3-dimensional flowers for it, using Webster's Pages papers and buttons. I hot-glued vintage Christmas ornaments all over - and then added broken rhinestone jewelery. Finally, a big pink bow, and it was ready to go.
