I started this draft with a nice back story. 10 paragraphs later, I decided to get right to the point. I wanted a wreath as a Christmas decor this year. But, I don’t want those traditional garlands. So, back in October while on a high DIY high, I voluntold my son to make me an ornament wreath.
Inspiration: That’s What Che Said
11/13/12: Here are my kids, ready to make an ornament wreath. My princess wanted to help. aw.
Here’s the finished product. I will add the bow later.
UPDATE: The bow on the wreath to cover the wire. I also used a fuzzy stick to hang it up.
Supplies: [aside from the kids-joke!]
ornaments about 75 or more depending on size
bow, wire edge ribbon
1. glue tips of ornaments together. to prevent the ornaments from falling off as you’re stringing them together
2. form wire hanger into a circle
3. string ornaments, arranging them so the wire won’t show too much. [luckily, i found a purple hanger, so i don’t have to worry if it shows]
4. hook ends and cover with bow or ribbon.
**the hanger that i got was too hard to work with in the end. so plan ahead on how you’re going to tie them together
**glue is HOT!!! – yeah i’m one of those moms who glues her fingers on ornaments. lol
**fill in the gaps [if any] with leftover ornaments, just glue them on.
