Ornament Wreath

Yesterday I had the privilege of spending the entire day with my wonderful mother in law. Some may think  that this is a common occurrence since we live so close to one another but it is actually pretty rare with our busy schedules.

We went shopping and saw a beautiful ornament wreath at one shop that the owner had made to decorate her shop. She told us that all she did was hot glue ornaments to a foam wreath form. We decided to make one on our own. We went to the local Ollie's and bought the following selection of ornaments...


We stopped by Michaels for our wreath form. The straw ones were the cheapest and the best size available. We decided to cut an old sheet into strips to wrap around the straw wreath so that no straw showed behind our ornaments.

We used floral pics to secure our fabric strips...



We dumped all of the ornaments into a big basket to make it easy to grab them and glue them...

Then we started placing them on and gluing them down...


We kept gluing and gluing until we felt the wreath was full enough. We were really happy with the final outcome!

Then we tried it out on Diana's front door...
After trying it out above the mantel, we decided this was our favorite spot for it...



This was a really fun project and only took us about an hour to complete! I am so ready to start decorating for Christmas and finish making Christmas presents!!!
