Christmas Project

I made this fun wreath yesterday. I love how it turned out. Sorry the second picture is so blurry.
All you need for this wreath is a wire hanger and a bunch of ornaments- I didnt have all the same size ornaments but I think it still turned out cute with the different size ones- I didn't want to wait to go buy them so I just used what I had , and then some ribbon, hot glue gun w/glue:)

Here are the instructions I found:

Take one of these...


and bend it into the form of a circle. Then, grab your glue gun and as many round ornaments in varying sizes as you can find. You'll need about 80 in all. Whenever I do my tree, I like the more unusual shapes, so it's always the round ones I have left over. Even if you don't, though, you can always find them for reasonable prices at a discount retailer, especially after the holidays.


To secure the metal cap to the ball, dab a little hot glue and press. That way, the cap will remain attached as the ornaments are strung.


Next, untwist the end of the hanger, then string one ornament at a time, making sure to alternate the placement and colors as desired. Use smaller sizes to fill in the gaps!


Check out the final result! To secure it to the door (make sure it's on the interior!), I used the hook end of the hanger, together with a little wire. Then I covered it up with bubblegum pink satin ribbon and a bow. How simple and beautiful is that?
