Vintage Pink Ornament Christmas Tree

Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving We had a nice, quiet day and now I have been busy Christmas decorating! Its always fun to unpack the boxes and relive the special memories some of the pieces have.

I have been collecting some vintage ornaments for several years now. My dad gave me a box of vintage Shiny Brights that had been his moms and I have loved them ever since. I have even picked up some pink ones for Lauren. Not all are vintage, but when mixed together, they look pretty nice.

I had seen this idea a while back and finally got around to making it. I picked out some pink and silver ornaments in various sizes. I took some wire and shaped it into a triangle. My wire was pretty thick and sort of hard to work with, but it was all I had on hand. Just be sure whatever you get is strong enough to hold the ornaments, but easy enough to bend.

I snipped a bunch of little pieces of thinner wire to attach each ornament to the tree shaped wire.

I curled each piece by wrapping it around a pencil. These will be my ornament hooks.

Most of my ornaments didn’t have a hanger on the top so I took a small piece of narrow black ribbon and hot glued it inside the opening.

Once my ornaments wee ready, I measured the sides of my triangle and marked the sides where I wanted to add wire across.

I cut another piece of wire to place across my triangle. I cut each one a little longer than the width of the tree. This will give a place for my ornaments to hang. I attached each side with thinner wire and a little bit of hot glue. I also curled the ends of each one.

I started placing my ornaments on my wire tree, moving them around until I got the placement I wanted.
