The One With the Atlas Wreath

I made this before Thanksgiving and am just now on top of things enough to show you. And even though it's late, I think it turned out pretty cool.

I saw the idea at a DIY Christmas show I attended with my mom. The designer behind Inspired by Ellee was there showing us all kinds of cool stuff (seriously... the things she did with chalkboard paint = very fun!). But my favorite thing she had on display was an atlas wreath with the word "Peace" (as in Peace on Earth) in the middle. I spent the next day searching all over my hometown for book of atlases so I could make my own.
An old picture frame from goodwill, some wooden letters, glitter and a hot glue gun later, I had my atlas wreath. And I really love it. Although mine is more like Joy to the World.

I accented it with some of the trees I made last year for my Glittery Christmas Village, and a nativity from my grandmother. And even though I made this for Christmas, it might stay up a little longer than that. It's nice that it's not super Christmas-y color-wise, so I could probably get away with it for a bit. Right?

O, and this is what Olivia saw in the living room that she described as "berry cole" and "beau-iful." I have to say I quite agree with her.
