A Junk Wreath for Christmas

It’s been a dreary day in these parts.  So to cheer myself up a bit I decided to make a junky wreath.  I dug out a bunch of jello molds and cookie cutters from my stash then set to work.

I really enjoyed making this junky wreath.

It is hanging in my kitchen on the door to the basement .

 I realized the wreath needed a base and remembered some wooden embroidery hoops in my stash.  I chose the largest of the hoops as a base for the wreath.  Here is a side view of the wreath.

Bell Side

I glued all the molds on the hoop

Santa side

then tied on the cookie cutters.

Bow Blubs

Instead of a bow I glued three large Christmas lights in the top mold.

 All of the items used to make this junky wreath are from a thrift store even the ribbon.  If you missed these two posts Vintage Ladder Christmas Tree Inspiration and Ten Minute Rustic Scoop Décor you can see where my head is this holiday season.

  3. This is such a cute idea! Great job and a clever use of these cute thrift store cookie cutters.

  4. I love it. I’ve been looking for something to do with my vintage kitchenware. I will certainly have to try this. Cutie patootie.

  5. I have some of those same molds, and some little tart pans, maybe it’s time to do some thing with them instead of taking up space. Your wreath is so cute, love vintage look of it. Will go digging for my little molds, etc., have the embroidery hoop also so I can get right to it. Glad you shared this project. Did it cheer you up. Been kinda dreary around here too, we live in western CO, west of Grand Junction. What area do you live in?
    Enjoy your blog. Hope you have good week, enjoy season

  6. I love old cookie cutter, this is so great! XX Jo
