This project is easy as pie, so let's get started.
Lots of Christmas ornament balls (big, small, medium, tiny, mix it up!)
Hot glue gun
I went to the dollar store and picked up most of the ornaments, some are glass and some are plastic. Some are as tiny as a grape! I liked mixing up all the sizes, because I found that they nestled in and filled in all the gaps. I'm going to say, I spent about $12-$15 total and used somewhere between 80-100.
See? Ordinary wire hanger:
Now use your super-human strength to form it into a circle and untwist near the hanging part so you have an open end. (do you like all the technical terms I throw around, like, "hanging part?" Thought so.)
Here is my assortment of ornaments. This is the tedious part - hot glue the tops onto each ornament so it won't pop off the hanger and break all over your kitchen floor. (Yeah, I skipped this part and I'm still finding slivers of glass. This part really sucks, but it's recommended...I didn't do it and probably will never do it. I'm just trying to be a responsible tutorializer here. Like my made up word?)
Let's take a little break at this point and click on the picture and look for a distorted Juniper reflected in the balls trying to get a photo for you! (Thank goodness I didn't photograph these while naked!)
Now, simply slide the loop of the ball onto the hanger, one by one. You will see them fall into place, just mess around a little. If you see a big gap, just try to slide on a small ball or tiny ball, they will begin to fill in all around the hanger.
Now, come on, that's dang cute! You can coordinate the colors with your decor, you can add a ribbon, you could add different shapes...the possibilities are endless!
Now, I'm not dumb enough to think this is something new to you. This ornament wreath thing is a MOVEMENT! Soooo, go ahead, let me have 'em! Link up your ornament wreaths below and don't forget my big Christmas Ornament Linky Party is still scheduled for Thursday!
