|My 'NOEL' Configuration box - I'm teaching this next week at Blade Rubber Stamps!|
My excuse (not that I needed one) is that I'm also teaching a couple of classes shortly, so of course I've got to make my samples. I'm totally in the mood, and can't wait to put up all our decorations on 1st December. So... if you want to make some too (or overhaul the ones you already have) here's some inspiration.

The secret with wreaths (and any decoration, really) is lots of dimension, lots of glitz and glitter, lots of reflective surfaces and lots of colour. And lots of lights.

|White wreath, pink ribbons and the sweetest little bird - wish I knew who made it! If it's YOU, please let me know|

Above is some inspiration I've seen online - I am crediting where I can (I lost a lot of my links when my old computer died) so if this is yours, and not credited and linked to you, please let me know so I can give credit where it's due!

Finally, below is another wonderful display - with and without lights, adapting ornaments you probably already have.
