Christmas Wreath Tutorial


If you haven't seen this wreath before then I'm not sure who you even are! I kid, I kid. But for real, this little lovely has been all over the interwebs. So, I thought why not give it a shot!

And? Well, to be honest friends, it took me far too long to finish, but I was so pleased when I was finally able to hang it on our front door.

There are two methods for making a Christmas ornament wreath: a foam wreath or a wire wreath. I chose the foam, but if I had to choose again I'd have gone with the wire. Let me make it clear that if you are to follow my foam wreath tutorial you MUST follow step #1, MUST!


What you need:
foam wreath (size is up to you, the bigger the more ornaments you'll need, duh)
Christmas ornaments
glue gun
spray paint
ribbon

How to:
1. Spray paint your wreath a correlating color to your ornaments. This step is vital! I did not do this and you can now see green foam threw some of the cracks! It's worth the time to do this step!

2. Remove the hanger piece from the end of the ornaments. You'll need anywhere from 80-120 ornaments.

3. Beginning with the biggest ornamnets glue a ring on the inner and outer sides of the wreath.

4. Proceed with smaller ones to fill gaps and so on and so on. This will take time and a lot of patience.

5. Grab your ribbon and lace it around the wreath. You'll want to cut the ribbon an appropriate length for your door. Make a bow, hang it on your door and show it off!

I may have had some help from the Hubs on this project. Luckily, I married a man who likes to craft {possibly even more than me}. The moral to this story, if I can do this so can you!

So before you go packing up all of Christmas, why not get your wreath ready for next year while all the ornaments are 70% off! Happy wreath-making lovely readers!
