>I saw this holiday project online last year on The Thrifty Decor Chick’s blog I think. I thought it was a wonderful idea especially as I have a huge blank spot just crying for something above my fireplace mantel.
I waited until after Christmas to buy the supplies so I could get them really cheap. I did get shatterproof ornaments for the most part. My wreath is large but can easily be made smaller or any size you want.
hanger (I used 2 hangers)
hot glue gun and glue
wire cutters to cut the hanger
I twisted open my hangers and then joined them together. I just twisted the ends overlapping and then covered them with duct tape to make sure the hangers stayed together. Push and pull the hangers into a circle shape. Then hot glue the tops onto the ornaments. If you don’t, your ornaments will fall off because the tops will separate from the ball. Next step is to string your ornaments onto the hanger. I mixed sizes and colors. You just keep adding ornaments until you are satisfied with how it looks.
