This Christmas ornament wreath has been featured on Pinterest. I always admired the look of it, and decided I would give it a try myself.
I did have a few leftover non breakable balls so I started with a color scheme that would match my decor.
To make this Christmas Ornament Wreath you only need three items:
- a 14 inch Straw Wreath Form
- about 80 Ornament Balls (See below for online bulk buying options in a variety of colors if you plan to make more than one wreath)
- Hot Glue and a Hot Glue Gun
Directions for Making Christmas Ornament Wreath:
You do not need to remove the plastic covering on the straw wreath. You can choose to make a wreath using only one size ornament balls, or make one with variable sizes like the one I made. There are many examples of Ornament Wreaths on Pinterest, if you’d like ideas.
The hardest part is color mixing and spacing of the assorted sized balls. I wanted to add some smaller fill-in ornaments that I could not find at the dollar store, but Wal-Mart did have just what I wanted in multi shades of my theme. The completed project including six tubes of ornaments from the dollar store and the wreath base and smaller ornaments from Wal-Mart, excluding the hot glue sticks I had on hand. This Christmas ornament wreath DIY cost me about $16.00. Not too bad for the look, and it does not weigh much, so it hangs easily on mirrors. I am now thinking about trying it on a cone shape to see if I can make something with that. If it is a success, I will post the finished result.
