The Wreath My Daughter Made
OK, I might have helped a little... 😉We spent Thanksgiving at our daughter's house this year and she always wants to try to do one 'crafty project' while we're together. This year, she wanted to make an ornament wreath, and if you ask me, she 'knocked it out of the park'.
We headed out to the discount store and chose these ornaments:
Let me give you one word of advice. Take the time to remove the caps from your ornaments and hot-glue them back on. I made an ornament wreath a few years ago and left out that important step. Many of the ornaments fell off and I had to re-make the wreath. Save yourself some trouble!
Take a wire hanger and bend it into a circle - here's how we started:
Then open up the top of the hanger and you're ready to start adding ornaments.
Let give you 2 more tips.
First, when you hot-glue the caps on the ornaments, wear rubber gloves. Many people don't have finger caps for protection and, believe me, you don't want to get hot glue on your fingers!
Second, use a binder clip so the ornaments don't slip off the other end while you are adding and arranging them. See the arrow in the above picture. The binder clip is a little difficult to see.
When your hanger is full, twist the ends of the hanger back together, add a pretty bow, and hang your wreath.
Didn't she do a great job?
I love how the colors look against the door!
This is an easy project that can be completed in very little time. If you still need a holiday wreath, this could be your answer!
Have a wonderful week - don't forget to pin/share!
