Christmas ornament wreath

Ok!  It’s time.  I have been wanting to post this for over a month, but thought I should wait till at least Halloween was over.  Last year I found the coolest ornament wreaths online and wanted to make one.  Since I didn’t have time before Christmas, I decided my goal would be to collect ornaments after Christmas for cheap and then start it in June of July and have it done by Christmas 2011.  Well I did it, and I LOVE it.  By far the coolest wreath I have done.  (and actually hope it gets pinned one pinterest) haha 

 

This is what I started with, and decided to wrap strips of felt around the wreath.  I didn’t want to take the plastic off the wreath, but I was afraid the hot glue would melt it.  So who knows if it made any difference!

I did not have a pattern, or certain colors picked out to use.  I used foam balls, plastic balls, and a few glass balls.  Pretty much whatever I could find.  First I wrapped some ribbon around the wreath, so it would be ready to hang.  Then I started gluing in the inside of the wreath and then putting them on the outside.

I then started filling in the gaps and had to go to smaller ornaments.

I used A LOT of balls, I'm not exactly sure how many, but did have to take a couple trips to Hobby Lobby for more.

I pretty much think my wreath rocks, and can not wait to hang it on my mirror above my fireplace.

I'm so ready to decorate for Christmas.  When do you start decorating???

  5. Found you at Creations by Kara. LOVE your wreath and want to make one. Did you hot glue or regular glue? Did you have to hold the balls in place for a while as the glue dried?

  6. I know Valerie, I have a few wreaths myself. My husband asked me where I plan on putting this one. ;) Jennifer- I used Hot Glue and a lot of it. I pulled off the tops to every ornament and held in place long enough for it to not roll off. I kinda randomly put the balls all over. Good Luck if you make one, and I would love o see it.
