Paper Ring Wreath and Sugar Scrub

Happy Hump Day. I love the middle of the week. The beginning of the week is behind us, and the end is in sight. I usually am more motivated for whatever reason on these days. It is really cold here right now, so I am glad that I can be inside where it is nice and warm. I love looking out at the cold, beautiful snow.
Anyway, I have another project to share with you today. I started making this wreath before Christmas. It was going to be a Christmas present for my mother-in-law, however, it is very time comsuming so it became a birthday present to her.

I saw this idea on Whipperberry for their 12 days of Christmas event, and knew I had to make one. Here is the tutorial on it http://www.whipperberry.com/2010/12/12-days-of-christmasday-one-event.html. I absolutely love how it turned out. I want to make one for me, but that will be some time because it took a lot of time.
I also made her some lavender sugar scrub. I used the recipe from Homemade Mamas. The link is here http://www.homemademamas.net/2011/01/pomegranate-sugar-scrub_06.html. It smells so good.

 I used a canning jar, modge podged some tissue paper to the sides, spray painted the lid, and put some scrapbook paper on the lid. I then wrapped a piece of ribbon around the middle and made a white felt rossette for the center. Love how it turned out. My mother-in-law really seemed to like it as well.

Linking this up to the following parties:

I love that you followed my wreath tutorial! I found you by accident but I'm sure glad I did! It is a very time consuming task isn't it? I know, but when it's done it's so worth it!! I loved the papers you used.

Kisses.

I am going to link it up to your party today. I absolutely love it. When I saw yours, i just about died. I have a really cool idea using your pumpkin technique, and making something else. When I make it, I will show you. Thank you for the compliment, and for you awesome ideas.
