Getting Crafty!

I am the new proud owner of a glue gun! I can remember when they first came out and my Mom, sister, and their friend Dodie all got them. They were hot gluing up a storm! They are all crafty people. Sadly, I am not. But today I went out there and bought myself my very own hot glue gun.

Last year at the end of the holiday season I bought a wreath for the front door. It was just plain and I figured I could 'do something with it'.
While going through Christmas decorations in the basement I found six of these sprigs of holly/pine cones.

They don't really go to anything and I think they were in a box of decorations that were given to us years ago. Instead of throwing them out, I decided to see how they would look on my new wreath.

Here is the finished product.

Not bad for a first time crafter, if I do say so myself!

I am obviously going to put the wreath on the outside of the door, but for the sake of the picture I hung in on the inside.
