This week I made an ornament wreath and I was so happy with how it turned out that I wanted to share it with you.
Several years ago I made a different ornament wreath by stringing ornaments onto a wire hanger bent into a circle. I liked it but I didn't love it. The ornaments were always popping off and it just seemed like a jumbled mess most of the time. When I spotted Decor Chicks ornament wreath on Pinterest I instantly felt compelled to remake my wreath. I had already been to the craft store earlier that day but I dragged my kids again the next day so I could pick up a base for my wreath and some ribbon.
I left the plastic wrapping on the wreath and then covered it in ribbon.
After taking off the silver tops from each ornament I began gluing them around the wreath with my hot glue gun.
I glued the tops facing down and also put a dab of glue between the ornaments where they touched to help make the wreath sturdier.
After making my way around the wreath once I added another layer of ornaments in front and behind the original one.
After that I filled the the bare spots with smaller ornaments. I think I used four different sizes of ornaments total.
This project took a lot longer that I thought it would but I still was able to get it done in an afternoon. It also used quite a bit more ornaments than I thought but luckily I had enough to finish the project without having to make another run to the store. I just love the pop of color it adds to our front door.
