Christmas with the England's

Each year for Christmas, my family does a 'homemade' gift exchange. It's a lot of fun, but it can also be a challenge. The gift must be gender neutral, which usually isn't a problem. The issue is that I am from a family of builders and construction workers, so I have to compete with my uncles making mailboxes, bird houses, shelves and other such awesome gifts! So I put my brain to work (with the help of pinterest!) We all share a common interest of the outdoors and everyone has the same last name, as Grandma had 6 boys and I am the only married girl grandchild. So this is what I came up with...

This is not the 'Final' picture as I forgot to take one! The only major change was that I trimmed the tafata even with the top of the E. It was easy and simple and I thought it looked good. Well my family loved it and I got many compliments! My Grandma was the one who ended up with it and it was hanging on her door the next day! :)

Here is what I used:

Wreath $5.99 from Hobby Lobby
Letter E $2.49 from Hobby Lobby
Tafata $2.99 from Wal-Mart (Did not use it all)
Red Spray Paint $1 from Wal-Mart
Hot Glue
Deer Antler (Found mine in the woods!)

I think the rest is self explanatory :)
I sprayed painted the E and hot glued it in the center. I then arranged the tafata bow and antler and hot glued into place. Trim the tafata bow and there you have it! My wreath came with a 'built in' hanger to hang it, otherwise you might need something to do this if your wreath does not have one.
