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.

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.
