I hope you are ready for some Christmas crafts because I am ready to share some with you!
This was one of the first projects I saw on Thrifty Decor Chick last year when I was introduced to the world of décor blogs! :)
An ornament wreath!
I instantly fell in love and rushed to Wal-mart to buy my ornaments. I didn’t like the way it was looking on when I strung them on the hanger shaped into a wreath (see her tutorial to understand what I am talking about). So I decided to hot glue it to a wreath form instead. Mistake #1! I went to hang it and dropped it! The ornaments broke apart from each other into about 10 different segments. I could have cried!! So it got stuffed into a bag and packed up into the attic in January. :(
This year I was DETERMINED I would get it fixed and hung!
I love the red, green, and brown together!
My Christmas dishes have red and green in them and the brown ties in with the brown walls.
Ready to make yours? Here are some great examples from blogland:
Tidy Mom made this one from Dollar Store ornaments!
So if you can be patient :), wait until AFTER Christmas this year and pick up super cheap ornaments to make a wreath for next year. If you just can’t wait, head to the Dollar Tree or the Dollar spot at Target for some cheap ornaments to make your wreath. :)
(Stay tuned because I am working on a post on all the different ways you can use ornaments to decorate around the house. I am at 7 different ways so far (and no tree is involved! Did you see one of the ways in one of my pictures above? :)
