DIY Ornament Wreath

A couple of days ago, I made this seasonal ornament wreath. I have long admired these and imagined that they were really hard or intense to make, but it was just the opposite. It was one of easiest crafts I have ever completed. Below are the directions:

Supplies

1 metal coat hanger that can be untwisted at  the top

About 100 glass ornaments of various sizes (at least three different sizes). You can use multi-colored or go with one color. I used various shades of gold and silver.

Hot glue gun

Pliers

Directions

Use the hot glue gun to adhere the metal top of the bulb to the ornament. Glue it all the way around. If you don’t do this, the bulbs will pop out of the metal rim when the wreath gets fuller and more glass bulbs are added.

When that is completed, untwist the top of a metal hanger and shape into a circle. Leave the circle opened at both ends.

Begin to string the glass ornaments onto the hanger wire through the hanging circle at the top. Alternate sizes. Continue until the circle is full. Leave enough hanger wire at the end to twist together using the pliers. I didn’t have enough strength for this without the pliers.

Even out the bulbs around the circle. The twisted wire at the top can be easily hidden by the bulbs or a ribbon.

A decorative ribbon can be added to use the wreath to hang or it can be used just as it is as a centerpiece on the table and filled with candles or greenery.

So easy and so sparkling and pretty.
