My First Ornament Wreath

Hello everyone!  Before we begin, I want to apologize for this post being short and not having as many pictures as I wanted.  I literally started this project with the intention of taking more pictures to add.  But I got so excited to get started that I forgot to take picture.  Sorry.

So I have wanted to make an ornament wreath for quite some time now.  And I finally felt like I had enough ornaments to make the wreath.  Mom and I had been collecting them for a while from yard sales and thrift stores.  So now that the time was right, I finally bought my wreath.

The first thing I did was wrap the whole thing in ribbon.    I used one spool and then realized I greatly underestimated how much ribbon I needed.  So off to the store I went to buy two more…

I then pulled out the ornaments and started gluing!

Yeah…I had a lot.  Enough to fill the entire box.  But I had a variety of pink ornaments along with some silver and gold.  I started hot gluing the ornaments down and filled in where needed.

And here’s the finished product!

I know it’s not exactly circular anymore, but I really like it!  And for it being my very first one I am very proud of myself.  I wish I took more pictures while I was doing it, but I was so excited to finish that I forgot…  And what’s even worse is that I still have enough ornaments that I can make a whole second wreath!

And even though I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures, I did still have time to take this one!
