Winter Snowball Wreath GIVEAWAY!

**This giveaway is now closed.**

The winner of the snowball wreath is…

Congrats, Diane!  Please contact me at [email protected] and let me know where to send your new wreath!

Remember my winter snowball wreath?


Well, it’s been sitting just inside my front door for a week now. It has been replaced with my new spring wreath, and I have no place to store it, so I’m giving it away!

Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th, so you’ll still have just about a month to display the winter wreath, and hopefully you’ll have a place to store it until next year. If you’d like to enter to win, here are the details:

  • Prize: One “snowball” wreath made by yours truly.  (Disclaimer:  It’s not actually made of snow.  😀  The wreath is made of Styrofoam, Epsom salt, Mod Podge, and hot glue.  I’ll even throw in the chevron fabric hanger and bow.)
  • To Enter: Simply leave a comment on this post.  It’s that easy!
  • Giveaway Closes: Friday, February 17th, 2012, at midnight CST
  • Number Of Winners: One
  • Prize Ships: Anywhere in the contiguous U.S.  (So sorry, Hawaiians, Alaskans, and international readers!  I wish I could afford to send it anywhere in the world!  Please know that I greatly value you, too!!)
  • The Fine Print: One entry per e-mail address, please!  Winner will be selected via Random.org and announced on this post on the morning of Saturday, February 18, 2012.

    I am such a big fan of your site. I was so thrilled when I found it. I go back each day and look at all the
    cool stuff you do and wish I had the money to do those things. I love the wreath, but for financial reasons
    I couldn’t afford to make one. I have been saving balls as I find them, and looking for different ways to
    come up with it a little cost effective. I would be so proud to win it!! Display it with honor and of course
    your website along with it!!

    I would totally use this for more then winter decorations. I think an all year round door hanger is what my home needs. Add little this and that’s to it for Easter etc. then when winter comes around again a you wouldn’t have to repack it again and again and again.

      So glad, Diane! I was afraid it might break in transit. If you take it out to use next winter, and the Epsom salt has lost it’s luster, you might try a can of iridescent spray glitter to add some shine. 🙂 Enjoy!

        I love the idea of the iridescent spray glitter (I’ve never seen this before…brand?) as I actually have a snowball garland that I purchased several years ago and it has a sort of iridescent fuzziness to it. Yes…this wreath is soo me! Yay!
