Each blogger will lead you to the next, so be sure to finish the hop all the way through to the end for all the Christmas movie goodies! I welcome you to stop by at the end of this post to see all the other Christmas magic. 

I am so excited you are here today and if you are here from  
A Mommy Scene thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to DIY180, welcome! This is my favorite time of year and what makes it more fun is having the opportunity to work with talented bloggers. We can't wait for you to see what we have created using Christmas movies as our source of inspiration for our projects. 

I have many favorite Christmas movies, but the one I have the fondest memories of  "It's A Wonderful Life". I just love George and Clarence's the angel. My favorite part of the movie is when George comes home and the children ask their father where is the Merry Christmas wreath and you see the Christmas tree in the background. This scene I remember how those vintage Christmas bulbs stood out to me on the tree and thinking about the Merry Christmas wreath. I put the two together and came up with an easy wreath for you to make and enjoy ever Christmas. 

This post contains sponsored links. 
Supplies needed: 
Vintage Christmas bulbs (These would work)
Hot glue gun (This is my favorite cordless glue gun.) 

Using my gold spray paint, I gave one coat to my chipboard wreaths. I set aside about 5 minutes to dry. While waiting for the wreath's to dry, I rearranged my vintage Christmas bulbs.

Once I figured out how I wanted the bulbs, I hot glued them on the chipboard. Once I had the bulbs in place, I added my bow.

Here is my "Merry Christmas wreath". Having a little vintage in my Christmas decor, makes me happy because it reminds me of my childhood.

It's starting to feel like the most wonderful time of the year!  Every Sunday after Thanksgiving, my family and I attend an open house at our local nursery filled with holiday decor, free Christmas cookies for shoppers and fresh hot cocoa!  It really gets us all into the spirit during this family tradition.  
I'm really looking forward to decorating the Christmas tree and filling my new window box with Christmas lights and lots of fresh holly!  Time to start searching for some fresh mistletoe and beautiful poinsettias.  I also like to buy a new Christmas cactus each year and watch it fill my home with blooms!  I've still been snapping photos for the photo a day challenge I've been participating in this year.  Check out my latest shots below!
