Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a pretty Christmas Ornament Wreath, and I’m excited to have Patty Schaffer share her DIY Ornament Wreath with us today. If you’ve always wanted to make an Ornament Wreath, take a peek at Patty’s tutorial – it’s three easy steps! You can DIY this Ornament Wreath in an evening, and it would be a fun project for a Girl’s Night Out. Don’t panic about the number of ornaments required. I checked out the Dollar Tree and you can buy all of the ornaments you’ll need for about $10 – $12. (Remember to enter the Crafts ‘n Cocoa giveaway, too.)
To make a Christmas Ornament Wreath, you’ll need:
- STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
- Fabric to coordinate with your ornaments, ½ yd.
- 48mm (just under 2”), seven dozen
- 25mm (about 1”), six dozen
- Chenille stem
- Low-temp glue
- Tools needed: Scissors; ruler; straight pins; optional: rotary cutter and cutting mat
To make a Christmas Ornament Wreath:
- Cut the fabric into 2” strips. Wrap the wreath in fabric, pinning and gluing the ends of each strip to the back of the wreath.
- Place the wreath flat on a tabletop. Sort your ornaments, and use the larger ornaments first. Arrange and glue the ornaments around the outside and inside edges. Cover the front of the wreath next. Layer on the smaller ornaments to fill in any gaps.
- Twist together the ends of a 4” length of chenille stem to create a hanger. Insert and glue the hanger to the center back of the wreath. Let glue dry before hanging.
Here’s another pretty Christmas wreath Patty shared with us a few years ago.
Both of these wreaths can be made in your favorite colors for Christmas. What’s your Christmas color scheme this year?
