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.
