How to Make an Ornament Wreath :: Video Tutorial

DSC_0885-1I am sure you have seen these lovely ornament wreaths hoping around blogland the last few years.  Well, two years later, after falling in love, I finally made one.  And I even put together a little how to video for you all.  The wreath is as glorious as I dreamed it would be… 

What you will need:

-Wire coat hanger (I hear dry cleaner hangers work best)

-Butt-load of ornaments (I used 57)

-A piece of duct tape

-Ribbon to hang it from

-Wire Cutters

DSC_0884After I finished stringing the ornaments on the coat hanger, I intertwined the hook part back together.  Once I had the wreath fully intact, I used heavy duty wire cutters to snip off the hook.  I then found some corresponding thick ribbon to hang it from. DSC_0886 Probably the most beautiful thing in my home at the moment…and all for only about $10!

What are you inspired to make this year?

  4. I love the colors you used for this! I made one last year but I used plain red and green. I'm impressed that you were able to find enough ornaments that cheaply too!

  7. Thanks for the tutorial--my dd watched this with me. This looks like a good and easy project she can work on for a home school art project. We both lol at your comment about buying all that Target had in the dollar section.

    Hope you have a Thanksgiving filled with blessings!!

  8. seriously, why do you do this to me? don't you know I went to Ikea and now have all plastic hangers?!
    OK, I'm gonna forgive you because you look so darn cute explaining the process. I checked my Target and I'm so glad I live so far from you this time-they still have them.
    I'll send you a pic once I make this one (oh yes I will!)

  10. Love this idea!! I especially love that you don't need any hot glue or special supplies for this. I was thinking that this might make a nice Christmas gift for my mother-in law. Thanks!

  15. I really liked the wreath and the video. You made it very simple but just wish you had shown how you finished the wreath. Thanks for the tips.

    1. It's really easy! You just intertwine the hanger again and snip off the hook like I showed in the photo!

  16. How did you do the bow? I'm having some trouble with that part.

    1. I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the wreath and tied it off. This piece is covering up the excess hanger. Then I tied a bow around that piece of ribbon. So it is two pieces of ribbon. Mine is very fragile so it is normal if if feels extra delicate to work with! Hope this helps!
