Ornament Wreath

I love this wreath! I've seen several ornament wreaths on Pinterest and have seen them in the stores for a few years - and I finally thought, surely I can make one too. I followed this great tutorial. It wasn't hard - it just takes awhile!

I started with an 18-inch straw wreath. I thought this would be too small of a wreath, but when you get all the ornaments glued on, it's really a lot bigger than you might think.

I wrapped the straw wreath with silver tinsel and then started hot-gluing my plastic ornaments on. And gluing. And gluing. It does take awhile. You have to glue a bit, then hold the ornament in place until it sets up a bit before you can move on to the next one.

The end result is gorgeous though - so, it's worth it!

It's now hanging proudly in my foyer over top of my old window frames. So beautiful!

More Christmas-goodness coming soon!
