I saw on Pinterest a wreath made out of a bundt pan. It was just the bundt pan with a ribbon attached for hanging. It stuck in my head as an idea, but with my own twist. I rarely ever make anything exactly like the things I "pin". I mostly use it as a springboard to make something more like the things I like. I like using my "junk" to make stuff.
So, I had these old Jell-O molds kicking around forever. I decided they would make most excellent Christmas Wreaths.
I took this copper wreath and added some vintage plastic greenery and a red glittery bell. Then I took small glass ornaments and put them inside a giant vintage light reflector to make a flower of sorts. I really like this one even though the colors aren't my usual colors. It will go to the booth this week.
This great old aluminum wreath had a nice patina to it. I added vintage silver foil leaves, silver pipe cleaner twists (wrapped around a pencil to make a spring), a silver slight reflector with a red Shiny Brite mini ornament in the center and some red bells to make it POP. I really like the red and silver combination. This one will stay with me.
Of course, now that I made these two, I want to make MORE. But, all the Jell-O molds I find lately are priced $4-5 each which is crazy! I know I have only paid a little bit for each of the ones I bought in the past. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more molds in the future.
What do you think?
