Tinsel New Year's wreath

It's  new year and time for a new project!!
 
 
 
 
A New Year's wreath!
 
 
 
 
I used a straw wreath and some gold tinsel I got on clearance!!  I just wrapped the tinsel around the wreath until all of the straw was covered.  It took 2 packages of tinsel.  I pinned the end with a stick pin.  That way it's removable when I decide to change the wreath.
 
 
 
I then tied a big sloppy bow and a hanger with some gray chevron ribbon.
 
 
 
 
For the sign, I took a small rectangle of wood (from Hobby Lobby) and put 2013 onto it using letter stickers.
 
 
 
 
Then I sprayed it with Color Shine (amazon associate link) by Heidi Swapp
 
 
 
 
I love how glittery it is- even though it doesn't show up well in this photo.
 
 
 
 
Then I filled in the inside of the numbers with glossy accents.  (amazon link)
 
 
 
 
Then I glued a silver pipe cleaner around the edges of the sign and a gold one to the back to tie it onto the wreath.
 
 
 
I love the mix of gold and silver and the gray chevron. 
 
 
 
 
It's so shiny and sparkly.  Perfect to bring in the New Year!!
