After seeing the ornament wreaths everywhere last year, I decided to make one. I used some old ornaments that I wasn't using on the tree anymore and went for it, but I didn't have enough to make one as big as I wanted. So I bagged it (literally, all the stuff that went into the making of it was all together in a garbage bag when I unpacked Christmas this year). I brought it out and thought about getting more ornaments to finish it. Bah. Then I was at the dollar store and I saw the tinsel and I thought of the cover of the Martha Stewart magazine this month and WHAM:
The wire that I strung the ornaments on was not up to holding this business up, so I wired a big embroidery hoop to the back to reinforce it and it's holding up great. And I totally love it.
It was really easy, too. Since I had all my ornaments strung up on the wire already, all I did was close the loop and then wrap garland over the wire and between the ornaments. Three garlands is all I used, but I might go back and add one or two more to chunk it up a bit. We'll see. I'm definitely going to go get more garland- I might go a bit tinsel crazy.
Anyway, that's the conclusion of my wreath craziness- I made this one and the ones in the previous 2 posts all in one night.
