I stayed up late the other night after work to put up our Christmas tree. I had a bunch of ornaments left over because there are too many to put on our small tree. I started brainstorming what I could do with the left overs. I then decided to mimic some ornament wreaths we are selling at work (for $50 each).
I free handed it instead of using a wreath structure. You could use metal or foam. Heck you could even tape two ends of a swimming pool noodle and make a big one if you wanted.
All you need for this project is
- ornaments (a couple different sizes)
- glue gun
- glue sticks
- wreath shape
you can also add in
- string lighting
You want to start on the outside of the wreath first, then the inner circle. After that it’s just a matter of adding a new layer and filling in the gaps.
pro tip- I made sure to mix the glittery/shiny bulbs with some of the duller ones to have a good visual diversity.
Also be sure of each placement because after they are glued together it can be a little hard to separate them. Not impossible, just difficult.
