I started my project with a wire wreath, chains, hooks and a strand of icicle lights.
What embraces decorating the holidays more than lights! I wanted to create something for a dark corner in my family room...something magical! I had an idea what I was going to do, and started going through my Christmas bins looking for inspiration!
I sprayed the wreath, chains and hooks with Rustoleum American Accents White Flat Spray Paint. When they were dry, I topped it with Rustoleum 2x Ultra Cover Matte Clear to protect from all elements.
I then wrapped the lights around the wired wreath, letting the strands fall through.
I added a garland and picks around the wreath attaching with thin wire. I added ornaments and a very special angel front and center. The angel was my grandmothers and each year I try to incorporate it in my holiday decorating. Every time I pass it I think of her and smile.
I then added some colorful garland to the 3 chains,.I ended the lights at the top where the hook is. I attached a extension cord to the end of the lights that has an on/off switch .
This is how it looks now that I've finished
This is what it looks like during the day.....but at night...
Fills the room with light!
