Holiday Copy Cat Wreath

  Hi Folks..

 its been quite a day and I am thrilled to be online:)     I woke up to my beloved toshiba fried and died and unrepairable.     I found a new one-- unfortunately the only choice was Windows 8.. ugg. this will take some getting used too.  Plus I went from a 19 inch screen to a 26 cause thats what came with the full pc package and it was twice the cost to buy it piece by piece....
 anywhooooooooooooo.. I got it all hooked up, made adjustments enough for me to download my art program, my camera and get internet up and running.
   I was so worried I would'nt get to play at DebbieDoos Holiday Knock off Party

  I spied Kathy's chair wreaths the other day and knew instantly thats what and who I was going to copy..
 Thanks Kathy.. I love yours~!   Her letters are wayyyyyyyyyy prettier but I had to use the ones I had onhand..  
click the link below to see her whole post with a tutorial..


here's mine.     I had the grape vine wreaths,the letters, the bow, the pinecones and the beads.. Got the greenery from my neighbor.. 
  I did get my table done but it got dark before I could get any pics of that.. Havent had a working computer till an hour ago so I'll take pics later and show off my dining table and chairs I redid as well as my holiday table.

 Here's one shot of Kathy's but she has lots of great pics on her site so be sure to go and visit her.
 Thanks for the party Deb  and thanks for doing such a great holiday wreath for me to copy Kathy~!

Merry and Bright to each and every one of ya.

Love your wreath, Sonny. I love that the copy cats don't copy exactly but each puts their own spin on things- xo Diana

Very nice! I love how you took the concept and made it your own. It turned out beautifully!

Maria Elena said...

Love, love your wreath, Sonny! You did a great copycat!!! Beautiful!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great job, Sonny! I love yours! This makes for a great project because you can make them look anyway you want. Your letters fit in wonderfully with the design you did. I'm so flattered that you copied me! : )

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

Your wreath is adorable! I agree with Diana that it is fun to see how you used the other person's wreath for inspiration and then went your own direction. I'm wondering, why have I never participated in the copycat challenge? Maybe I'll see you there next week!

Gail said...

Oh Sonny, you did a fabulous job copying Kathy's beautiful chair wreaths! I love yours too!! I have a question for you Sonny, when you painted your chairs, did you put a wax on it after painting them? If so, what kind did you use? Hope you have a wonderful day, Gail

I love it Sonny. Your wreath is lovely and the letters look wonderful. I need some greens. Maybe a trip to the tree lot, they always have some. Glad you have your computer up and running again. Hugs, Marty

Very nice Sonny. I like them a lot.


Sarah said...

Love your wreath, I never would have thought to put one on the back of a chair. If you get a chance please come link up at my Pin Party.


Brandi said...
