First of all, I want to thank ALL of you for your kind comments about my first sale (at our home anyways) happening next week! You guys are THE best. I wouldn’t do this if it weren’t for you! And even though I don’t always have time to respond to your comments, I read EACH AND EVERY ONE of them and I’m so grateful that you care enough to say anything! THANK YOU!!
I had to get that out before I could move on to our Fall Wreath . . .
Naturally, when I came across a bag of small vintage jello molds recently at a rummage sale for $6:
I mean, duh! It seems like the logical thing to do with tins, right?
I purchased an 18″ wire wreath form from Michael’s and snipped off the outer two circles.
Having completed the project now, I would have only removed the fourth outer circle. The tins are wide enough at their bases that the third row of wire would have made my wreath more stable.
I then covered the wire form with seasonal ribbon:
Two holes were drilled into the bottom of each tin and I threaded ribbon through each one and tied each tin onto the form individually. I didn’t take a photo of that part, but hopefully it’s pretty self-explanatory. I had to hot glue the knot on the back in place to keep the tins from rotating. Like I said, if I had left the third wire circle, I don’t think I would have to do that part.
I think this wreath makes a unique, and vintage, statement for Fall, don’t you?
And if you’re wondering what to do with those cute little jello molds if you come across some, I found these ideas to share with you for additional inspiration:
