Peter Cottontail Wreath


Last year around Christmas time, I was in the shower.

It was there that I began searching my red head for a creative Christmas wreath idea.

I desired something no one else has ever thought of.

Something so unique, Oprah would text me and ask me to be on her show.

Wait, does Oprah still have a show?

A wreath that was so beautiful, flocks of people would travel hundreds of miles to gather at our doorstep,

just to catch a glimpse.

A creation that would crown me…

“The Wreath Maker”.

When I dried off, I ran out in the kitchen in my towel and punched in “cotton ball wreath”.

I thought, “There’s no way anyone has thought of this!”

 I was wrong.

So, the thought left me quickly.

Until, last month when I came across Peter.

My thoughts quickly went back to the cotton ball wreath idea.

That’s it!

I’ll make a “Peter Cottontail Wreath.”

I used regular sized COTTON BALLS.

I broke the TOOTH PICKS in 1/2 and then dipped them in ELMERS GLUE, and then into the cotton ball.

Then I stuck it in and made rows.

The BROWN RIBBON reminds me of chocolate.

The hardest part was waiting for the weather to warm up to get nice photos.

The snow was up to my knees.

Peter Cottontail was hopping around all over the place with excitement.

He ended up in this one too…

Oh, Peter.

You’re so handsome.

Here’s a fun tip.

I sprayed ours with my favorite Spring perfume.

I hung it inside for now, and it freshens up the entire room.

Love it when things come together.

    Is there a specific reason you used the picks and Elmer’s glue rather than a hot glue gun? I can’t wait to do this!!!
