I was inspired by this wreath.
Of course, like most things on pinterest, mine ended up looking different. But I still love it!
It actually was pretty easy to make. I just poured myself some wine, turned on the Christmas tunes, and started hot gluing away. Here are some instructions (though it really is pretty easy! I only got hot glue on the carpet once :)
flat wreath form
white spray paint
hot glue and glue gun
snowflake ornaments (I got mine at the dollar store. I used 4 10 packs)
1. The night before you want to make the wreath, spray paint your wreath form white. This will make it less noticable if any wood shows through.
2. Remove the hooks from your ornaments, if needed, then glue the ornaments to the wreath form. I put a little hot glue in the center of the ornament, and overlapped each ornament to fill in most gaps.
Also I should note that since these ornaments were 10 cents each at the Dollar Store, they broke easily. Its okay to use the broken ones. Just hide the broken side underneath the next ornament.
3. Once you cover the whole wreath form, your wreath will look like this.
I wanted to see the entire snowflake, so I glued a few more ornaments on top.
That’s it for the wreath!
I planned to hang it on a mirror in my entry way. I always wondered how people did this without putting an extra hole in the wall. I folded the ribbon over the top of the mirror and used painters tape on the back to hold it in place. Its working pretty well - the wreath is still in place!
I love the touch of winter in the entry way! I’m thinking this can last past Christmas into January and February. (Once I finish decorating the table in there, I’ll show you the whole room :)
Have you started (or finished!) decorating for the Holidays?
