Holiday DIY: Metallic Garland Wreath With Lights

DIY Metallic Garland Wreath I have to admit that out of all the Christmas decorations, wreaths have never been my thing. Growing up my Mom would spend hundred of dollars to have Christmas wreaths custom made. They were always  very elaborate. They’d have dried fruit or frosted (If you’re from the South you know what I mean by frosted)  evergreens hanging from them, but I was never impressed. Although, recently I’ve seen a few tutorials floating around the web (aka Pinterest) for these metallic garland wreaths and I fell in love. I just had to give one a shot. I hope you’re as into it as I am!
