Our cake...I made the candle holders...from the Dollar Tree! And I made the topper!

I have a few wreath forms and needed to do something with them. I went to the Dollar Tree, and they really have some cute things! I wanted to make a Christmas wreath, since I haven't yet. If you want to make this, here's what you need:
- 8" wreath form
- 3 strands of rope garland
- red paint
- small and large Christmas bulbs
- large snowflake ornaments
- hot glue
After I took the red off, I went ahead and painted it so that the green wouldn't show through.
Here you can see where I ripped off the red...by the way, that pink isn't my carpet! =] It's a towel.
So anyhow, I alternated the red with the silver, for every 2 silver there was a red. I think it turned out cute, kinda reminds me of a candy cane.
Then, I embellished it with some snowflake ornaments and bulbs. I didn't want to use a lot, because I thought it would be overwhelming. Here it is...not that hard, but it's been a pain! =]

I painted the legs and trim of the table. I taped off around the center of the table and painted that so that I could do a tileing (I don't know if that's spelled right) effect. I used scrapbook paper that I already had and found complementary colors and cut them in 1inch squares. I really loved the pop of red glittery paper.
I Mod Podged all the paper on it in random patterns. These pictures really don't do it justice. It's much more bright and shimmery in the light than what this shows.
Here it is finished! I looove it. Now, all I need to do now is update the lampshade, which was my mom's and is completely broken and hanging on for dear life. And, update the lamp itself! Any ideas?!?!?
