I am so excited! All of the boxes are up from the basement and I'm about ready to put up my Christmas tree and all of my Christmas decorations. I always like to make something to add to my decorations every year and this year I decided to make the ornament wreath that I found here.
I absolutely love how it turned out! I can see my front door from my computer desk and I keep looking over at it! It was also really easy to make.
You will need quite a few glass ornaments. I bought a giant container of 50 red, green, and gold ornaments at Walmart for $16.98 and I used all but four of them. I also bought two containers of miniature red and gold ornaments for $3.50 each at Walmart. They contained 20 ornaments each and I used all of them. You will also need a wire hanger. I don't use them but I had one from some dry cleaning. Finally, you will need some wide ribbon. I used ribbon that was wired.
Untwist the wire hanger and bend it into a round shape. Bend the two ends into loops so you can connect them. I found the wire to be fairly pliable and easy to work with. You may want to use a hot glue gun to glue the tops to the ornaments. I didn't do that because my ornaments were very secure. Start stringing the ornaments on to the wire, varying the size and pattern as you go. I used two large followed by three small. Once the wire is full, connect the two wire loops. Attach a length of ribbon and tie in a double knot. Tie another piece of ribbon around the loop in a large bow. Adjust the ornaments so the the wire doesn't show and place the ribbon on a wreath hanger.
I love how the light in my foyer makes it sparkle! Give this wreath a try!
