Last Christmas, Cindy and I decided we would create the "oh so simple ornament wreath" seen all over the Pinterest boards. For us, it turned out to be a little bit of a Craft Fail, and landed in the trash after the holidays.
Please, don't be fooled by my photo editing techniques.
We shaped a metal coat hanger into a wreath/circle shape, then fastened ornaments along it. Note for future makers: 1. get more ball ornaments than you think you will need 2. shape your hanger wreath into a nice circle with pliers, not a flat pancake oval shape 3. patience.
While creating this post, Cindy informed me that she did not want to be affilated with her wreath, hence, no pictures.
This year I decided to tempt fate again and create the Yarn Wrapped Wreath, which again is seen all over the Pinterest boards and DIY blogs. The wreath is a classic necessary Christmas decoration that I really looking forward to making.

- hot glue gun
- plastic berries
- needle and thread

Oh Jax Teller...
Right. Back to the wreath.
The wrapped wreath was now my blank canvas. You could do ANYTHING you wanted at this point. I was inspired by this easy poinsettia DIY from HGTV. Putting together the poinsettia leaves was really fun!
I then hot glued the gold fabric paper from our Santa Ornaments in the middle. Next time I would perhaps use a jewel or button to tie it all together, and add green leafs, for a fancier effect. Then glue the flowers to the wreath. Next I added the plastic berries.
Final Step. Hang on your front door!
I really love coming home to my creation everyday! Is it weird that I want to make a wreath for every season now?
