The Holiday Wreath to end all Wreaths!

Here we go.  Are you ready. It's that time again.
Ok... well it's almost that time again and I am getting a jump start on my holiday decor!
Wreath mania is all over Pinterest and I wanted about 45 different styles and in true form I decided to make it as complicated as possible and try and combine several ideas!
It ended up being fairly simple and fell into place once I just tossed everything I had bought out onto my living room floor... kind of like Christmas threw up for awhile but all ended well;)
So what were my inspirations you ask? yarn ball wreaths, natural elements, and ornaments!
I am going with more natural elements in my decor this year and have several projects up my sleeves but for now here is my front door wreath... all ready to welcome the season!

Started with a large fake pine wreath from Hobby Lobby (gotta love 50% off)
and a stick wreath from there as well that I just loved!
 And these little skates were ornaments I happened to see at Pottery Barn Kids and I just had to have them but at the time wasn't sure where I would put them!
 And the yarn... it was a tough call on the colors... I found the red and gray plaid ribbon and it practically jumped into my cart so I wanted to work around that... so I got some red, a tanish/gray, white, and a really pretty blue... cause I love blue. period.  It was nice to actually just sit in front of the tv and wrap yarn balls.  I did different sizes and kind of played around with the layout as I went...

 Once I had it laid it out how I liked, I added in just a few sprigs with some berries and and hot glued the yarn balls on and attached the two wreaths together with some floral wire I had.
 Hung the little skates and she was ready to go! I Lurvvveee her! And while it confused my 4yr old to no end that Christmas was not here quite yet, I still hung her up so that I could show you some picture goodness;) 

Have y'all decided to get anything new this year for decorating or staying with your tried and true?  I can't help myself and have to add in a few new things each year but still have my faves from years past! Can't wait to show you the wreath I made for over the mantle soon!
