Christmas Ornament Wreath

Christmas Ornament Wreath: Pin-vestigated

 

I am sure you have seen the adorable Christmas ornament wreaths and garlands on Pinterest.  They look cute and according to the pins, they are supposed to be easy to make, so I decided to make one for our front door.

The process was very easy…

1. Take a wire hanger and shape it into a circle

2. Put ornaments on wire hangar

It went fast and I really liked the way it was turning out, but alas!  I ran out of ornaments :(  I had started with an entire package full of 40+ bulbs of various sizes, but it only filled less than half of the hanger.

Technically, I guess this wasn’t quite a Pin-tastrophe, but for me it wasn’t a Pin-Win either.  I never finished the wreath and my front door is bare.

Since it was a super easy project and I really do love the look, I am planning on buying a TON of ornaments after Christmas this year so I can make a finished wreath for next year.

Have any of you made a Christmas ornament wreath? Did you have more success than I did?  I would love to see your finished projects!  Feel free to post them in the comments or on our Facebook Page
