I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This was one of the few that we did not cook. We spent the day with friends and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, I spent the weekend feeling 'under the weather' and now the hubby is sick with a nasty head-cold. I hope this passes quickly!
But, let's move on to today's post. Tell me what you think of this:

This wreath was so easy to make! I used a wire coat hanger and shaped it into a circle:
Then I opened the hanger near the hook, attached a binder clip (just in case any of the ornaments wanted to slide off), and started stringing the (unbreakable) ornaments:
When I was done, I filled in any gaps with extra ornaments, attached with hot glue. The blogger who inspired this wreath recommended gluing the caps to the ornaments so they didn't pop off. I did not do this, and, yes, I did lose a few. Fortunately, I was able to reattach them to their caps or reattach them with glue. If this happens to you, remember, the glue gun is your friend!
After that, I made a bow and attached it with some wire.
Here is the best part about this project: I spent $24 on ornaments and had enough to make 2 wreaths! How fabulous is that? $12 per wreath - plus the ribbon for the bow. I know your next question is: How many ornaments did you buy, Ann? 176. Here's the proof:
And I even had a few leftover.
I must thank my inspiration for this wreath: Eddie Ross - you're the best! Here is Eddie's wreath:
I made this wreath a couple of years ago and shared it on my other blog, November Rose. Since that one is now dedicated to papercrafting, I thought I'd share the wreath here.
Be sure to stop back for more holiday decorating - 'tis the season!
