Christmas mailbox


Last year cute little metal mailboxes from Target were really popular for decorating. I made a bunch for the gift shoppe in which I sold items, and they went over really well. There were some left over, so I decided to sell them at the Houghton craft fair. I had just enough time to throw together a Christmas themed mailbox. I was not really creative that night (is there an artist/crafter's term for "writer's block??), so I might redo this for next year...

so how did you make the wreath?

When I was at your house, I punched a bunch of um, sprigs? from your Martha Stewart punch. I liked them so much, I bought the punch myself! Anyway, I think I used a mix of regular glue and repositional, because I knew I'd want to keep rearranging them as I went. I then punched bows out of velveteen ribbon, and glued those on with permanent glue. Then I weighted the wreath down overnight before attaching. :-)
