A Sparkling Starry Night Christmas Wreath

Hi all,
I hope you all are having fun looking at all the awesome projects, cards, jewelry and other creations people have made in our blog land. :D I know I have just been over whelmed with Ooohs, Awwws and Wwwoowwzzz.  It so nice to see everyone's awesome stuff, we have a lot of creative people in the world that is for sure. :D

Well I don't want to keep you all to long so, I had this old wreath that a friend gave me a few years ago and some of the items fell off or broke during the move. I wanted to make a wreath but didn't really want to fight the crowds at the store to look for some crafty items, so I looked through my stuff here at home. WhaaaLaaa, I found some old ornaments to use. (cause next year I want to buy new ones) heheheheee.  So I know this is odd but I took the snowflakes off the tree (bought at the Dollar Store years ago), used some of my old white bulbs and then used these blue pretty stars I didn't use this year. I hot glued everything onto the wreath the blue bows were already there from years prior.
And here is the end result...Hope you all like it. I thought it turned out pretty good. Plus I didn't have to go out in the cold and fight the crowds. :D
