I didn't realize that I had collected SO many vintage Christmas ornaments this year. Serious addiction I'm afraid. Intervention may be needed soon.
Every year I make a couple of wreaths using all these exquisite creations of the past. I covet them, I really do. But I think I'm putting up 10 trees this year, and they are all stuffed with ornaments. I keep the most special, special ones that I find, but use the rest to create beautiful wreaths.
I really love these wreaths. I have 3 that I made that I put up in my house every season. I think they are a great way to display and enjoy these wonderful vintage objects.
This year I made 6 wreaths. Yup. That's right, six! My storage closet is like a waste land now, with all the empty space made from pulling out all these stored ornaments. (room for more collecting I'd say)
I've put them in my etsy shop today. I ordered some very sturdy boxes for shipping this year since I have so many wreaths to offer. They aren't huge wreaths, just the perfect size to put on a door. They measure 15-16 inches from outside to outside.
