This year, my mom and I wanted to make a DIY ornament wreath for our houses. It was time consuming, but fun!
Here is how to make your own ornament wreath:
First off, you need to buy a lot of ornaments! We went to look through the At Home Christmas Decor (they have everyday low prices, so I shop there a lot) and we found a lot of Christmas Trees (including the best Tree for Me) and we found so many ornaments. They have things for every room, including 15 different themes (like the nautical holiday theme that I showed you a few weeks ago with my living room) My tip: buy a lot! We did! We bought one of the big containers of ornaments and then a container of smaller ones, too.
Next, get a styrofoam wreath and a hot glue gun (with hot glue sticks).
We started by gluing the ornaments on the outer part of the wreath and on the inner part. Our goal was to do this and then fill in the rest:
We tried not to do a “red/green/gold” pattern, but instead just put them wherever we felt they looked the best. To get them to stay, we would put hot glue on the ornament and then hold it for at least 20 seconds per ornament (which is why it was time consuming).
The glue is hard to hide, but luckily no one will see the back side, since it will be hanging not the front door.
By the end, we had covered all sides. Here is a shot of the back, so you can see how far in and out the ornaments go:
And the end result:
