Christmas Wreath

Do you like? I love it! lol I bought the ring ages ago (had to while I saw one they are so rare, why?) this is an oasis one I am going to use this for a challenge. I knew I wanted to make one for Christmas ever since I did the Halloween wreath (Here ) I have been looking for inspiration. I watched one of my fave Christmas movies on Saturday night with hubby, after we put the tree up, and there it was all the inspiration I needed 'White Christmas' the last scene of the film is all red & white with lots of snow. I am also including this for the challenge from BTC&G (by the cute & Girly) the theme this month is "Let's goto the movies" so my movie is 'White Christmas' as that's where the inspiration was from.
Here are some close ups aren't these hearts just darling? I had a job keeping it just red & white I can tell you was so tempted to get some green in there.
Loving the little santers I have used some paper clips (muti coloured)used the white & red of course, pulled them in half (so they are flat) and then cut in half (with wire cutters, they then look like 'U's) Ideal to pin all the tinsel to the ring (unlike the halloween one I didn't just wrap this round) The baubles & Santers I used wire and just pushed in the oasis.
It is on the front door as you can see I woul dof liked to put lights on too, would be nice to turn on when dark, however we do have an out side light so passers by will still get to look as they go by. Thank you for looking and any comments you leave. Love Dawn xx

Craft fair was not very good. Thankfully sold a few items so got the money I paid for the table and a little bit more. It was really cold and people were not very friendly. Will not do it again next year, only the one in our village. How are things at your end? Hope all is well.
Take care
anesha :-)
