It took me forever not just to write this blog, but to make the wreath too. The wreath was super easy to make, but I didn’t have ribbon to make the bow like I thought I did so the whole project got put on hold for weeks until I finally remembered to get ribbon!
Start out with a simple wire hanger. Undo the top of the hanger and bend it to form a circle. I actually found this to be kind of difficult so just keep working with it until you get it!
I used kinda medium/small sized ornaments and it takes a whole lot of them! I actually needed more, but decided I was too lazy to go back to the dollar store!
Take the hooks off the ornaments, if they have any, and just string them onto the hanger. Yes, it really is that simple. If the little tops don’t want to stay on just hot glue them on.
Once you get all the balls on, twist the hanger top and hook back together. I used the hanger hook to hang the wreath from my door wreath hanger!
For the bow on the top I just used simple green ribbon. I probably should have done more with the bow, but by this point this project had taken me almost a month to complete so I was just ready to be done! For those of you who don’t know how to make big bubble bows there’s some really good tutorial videos on YouTube! I unfortunately had to learn when I was a kid. My grandparents owned a farm supply and western wear store that had a gift wrapping department. Yep, you guessed it, my 8 year old self was the official bow maker! Haha
So there you have it, a really simple way to make an ornament wreath. If you’re planning on doing this at home make it a little more fancy than mine! That was my original plan! Ohh and don’t forget it takes A LOT of ornaments! Have fun!
