~White Christmas ball wreath~
Want a way to be festive but not expensive? Using ONLY beautiful ornaments from last year! I am sure you have seen a lot of tutorials that hot glue the ornaments to a foam frame. That method works just fine but I already had some wire wreath frames laying around so I decided to use those instead.
- Glue gun
- Shatterproof ornaments of your choice
- Craft wire
- Wire cutters
- Wire wreath form
You will first want to cut a bunch of wire pieces, each about 7-8 inches long and then bend the wires in half. These will be used to tie bundles or ball ornaments together.
Go ahead and cut 30 or so. You can always add more later, if needed.
Next bundle them, simply take one piece of folded wire and thread 3 ornaments through their hangers. Then, twist the wire snugly 2 or 3 times to secure them.
you will take that cluster of ornaments and secure it to the wreath frame by wrapping the ends of the wire around it tightly.
Then simply, repeat making clusters and attaching them to the frame until the entire front and side of the wire form is covered with ornaments.
Make sure the clusters are snug against each other. You don’t want them to be shaky or loose.
If you wish, you can always trim the excess wires. Just don’t trim them too short so you don’t lose any ornaments!
Finally, check over the completed wreath for any gaps or holes in the ornaments.
Now that you have completed your DIY Christmas wreath with ball ornaments, the only thing left to do is add a bow and hang it!
