12 Days of Christmas...Projects! no.2

Project No. 2: Ornament Wreath

Have you seen those gorgeous ornament wreaths in stores? I love them and I found a way to make my own using my own Christmas colors.

First, you need to gather ornaments in colors and sizes you love. I used some glass and some shatterproof. I think the glass are pretty, but you need to hot glue the hanger onto the bulb so it doesn't fall off. The shatterproof ones are nice because they don't break, but also are not as pretty.

You will also want to vary the sizes and textures of the ornaments to make your wreath look interesting and give it some dimension.

Here are my ornaments:

So pretty! I picked them up at Hobby Lobby, Walmart and Target. I had to go back to get more so start with plenty!

Of course, it is always nice to have a little extra Scampy-help!

All you do is string the ornaments on a wire hanger that you have shaped into a circle.

It's just that easy! You can then hang it using the end of the wire hanger or some ribbon.

So easy and beautiful!


  1. I think your wreath is just stunning!!!


  2. I just purchase all of my christmas balls so I could make your wreath ... you are right, I think I should have bought more. Crap.
