Christmas Ornament Wreath

This month I am going to show you an ornament wreath I made like many we have seen on Pinterest. I really had a blast creating this wreath. It's a fun and easy project to make.



I purchased these plastic ornaments at the drug store after the holidays for $5. I had the 12 inch wreath form and the two inch ribbon on hand. The only other things required were a hot glue gun and a pipe cleaner.


I wrapped the ribbon around the wreath form and periodically glued it into place because I didn't want the green to show through.



Once I got going glueing the ornaments on, I forgot to take more pictures! I removed the gold caps that hold the ornaments onto the tree - they came off quite easily with a simple twist. I started by gluing a row of ornaments around the lower outer wreath form so that the ornaments laid flush with the table.


Then I glued more on wherever they seemed to fit. I didn't mind the ribbon showing, in fact, I liked when the ribbon showed through.


Finally, I twisted a red pipe cleaner to make a loop and glued it on the back for hanging. Different colored and sized ornaments can be used for this wreath. This package of same-sized ornaments had 4 different textures which added interest to mine. 


It only took about an hour to make and it will add a nice holiday touch to our home when December comes around!

  8. Your wreath is lovely and will add a wonderful touch to your Christmas decor.
    I bought a couple of packets of similar balls in gold and white.
    I put them into a lovely flat glass bowl - it sat on my large coffee table and everyone commented!

    I love Kim's idea of an Easter Egg wreath too!

  11. Patty, I love your wreath! And using plastic ornaments is inspired. I get nervous when I see those wreaths that are made from vintage glass ornmanents - one bad move and bye-bye wreath!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!
