Ornament Ball Wreath

Hello my Lalafriends!

This year I tried to keep all of my decorations to a minimum because honestly it’s too much work putting them up and taking them down when there’s so much stuff going on.

So I had decided to jump on the bandwagon and make an ornament ball wreath.  Now I could show you the process, but there are tons of videos out there and honestly I didn’t watch any of them, but I wanted to share my dos and don’ts.  Here’s my wreath

Don’t get me wrong this wreath is nice and I could keep it up at least through the winter months, but as MD told me, It’s Wonky! Yup!

Ok so Do – purchase your supplies from the dollar store. This wreath which sells for $25-30 cost me $8! Do purchase various size ornament balls and maybe an offsetting color.  I had made this wreath with just silver and afterI had finished it was very plain so I went back and got the ice blue ones.  Do – after you glue the ornaments inside and outside, have a pattern of three ornaments on top and then fill in.  I didn’t make this pattern or three, I just glued these babies on everywhere and it shows!  Do start with a small size ring first, so you have a ‘My Bad’ one first, then you can decide to buy a larger ring after.

Don’t – forget glue sticks and the facts that hot glue when it BURNS your precious skin HURTS!!  Don’t forget to put down a cheap tablecloth first cuz the glitter that comes from these ornaments gets everywhere!  Don’t forget to leave a space for a ribbon or hanger when you glue the ornaments along the back.

Overall don’t be too critical on yourself!  You made this and it’s beautiful, plus you saved yourself a bundle of money you can now buy paper or washi tape or paint with! Priorities!  Can’t wait to hear how your ornament ball wreath came out!

Have a Magical day!

    I LOVE this–wonk and all!! I tried one years ago that you thread the ornaments on a wire hanger…..talk about wonky! Never made the door. I call this one a success. Nice job!!

    I love it! You need to give us a class in November when all the ornaments come out.
