Ornament Wreath

I fell in love with this ornament wreath when I saw it on Fingerprints on the Fridge blog. I followed this tutorial and ended up with this:



This project was much easier than the first project I decided to tackle, and didn't take very long at all.

In order to make this, you will need:
1 wire hanger
hot glue gun and glue
ornaments (approximately 60 large and 30 small)
ribbon


Start by shaping the wire hanger into a circle. Then, hot glue all the caps to the ornaments so they don't fall off later. When you are ready, untwist the ends of the hanger and begin stringing the ornaments, alternating colors and ornament placement as desired. Use the smaller ornaments to fill in the gaps left by the big ornaments. Once all your ornaments are placed, retwist the wire ends and form a hook. Use ribbon to form a bow and cover the hook. 


I chose to hang mine over a mirror in the living room. 


Please note, it is not recommended to hang this on an outside door.

Variations:
- You may add your bow to the wreath in the area of your choosing. It may look nice on the bottom and hanging down as opposed to on top.
- I chose to put ribbon throughout the wreath to cover up any areas where the wire was showing, this is optional.
- Use any colors you like! It may be fun to make a black and orange one for Halloween. It might also look cool with all one color!

Happy Crafting!
