The other day I mentioned my ornament wreath and how I moved on to another project because I was burned pretty bad in the process of gluing the little hook thingy to the ornament
At that time, I was making the wreath that will be used in my family room for the boys Christmas decor. While catching up on new posts in my dashboard, I saw more ornament wreaths being made and was like what? Are you kidding me? I. MUST. FINISH. MY. WREATH. NOW!!!
This is Carolyn's wreath from My Backyard Eden
This is Sarah's wreath from Thrifty Decor Chick
So I went down stairs and got to work, but then I was sidetracked by the pretty ornaments I found at the Dollar Tree over the weekend
They look silver in this picture, but they are like a pearl/blue/pretty color! They came nine in a pack for a dollar and I purchased all four packs they had!
This project is so easy even a cave man can do it (can I say that without getting in trouble)!!!
*Ornaments-amount depends on the size of the ornaments used
*Glue gun-possibly a low temp gun if you have one!
*a wire hanger
First step is to secure the tips of your ornaments with the hot glue
Then you will need to shape your wire hanger into a circle (the best you can)
***Shape the hanger prior to untwisting the top of it***
Then you will untwist the top of the hanger and start stringing your ornaments....EASY PEASY!
After all of that you will end up with this
Oh sorry, that's Eddie Ross wreath! For another tutorial go to his page
Here is mine
I planned to do a pretty ribbon and purchased this wire ribbon thinking it would be nice. Well, not so much! I think I'm just going get the kind Eddie used and be done. I'm also not settled on the place to hang this wreath. The ornaments I used are German Glass and the box says to keep dry and away from moisture so my door is not a good candidate.
What do you think?!?!
