Ok, so there’s just something about anything and everything gold right now. I don’t know what it is, I’m just drawn to it. The weird thing is that I used to be an all silver all the time type of girl and oddly enough I’ve switched. Gold details, gold jewelry, rose gold, gold wreaths, you get it? So, last year I made a wreath similar to the one featured in this post and guess what color it was… silver and blue. In all honesty, there’s more to this. I get bored with holiday decor and this year I changed our tree’s theme; so, other than the fact that I’m now obsessed with gilded anything, naturally I wanted to create another ornament wreath for the front door that would agree with the decor inside. In my house, the theme always has to be cohesive so just go with me on this one.
What I used: large ornaments, small ornaments, a hot glue gun, foam ring (I got mine from Michael’s), and ribbon
Remove the plastic piece from the top of the ornaments.
Arrange the ornaments inside the ring first and secure those. I applied pressure to make an indent in the foam and then filled it with hot glue. Hold the ornament firmly into the glue. Repeat along the outside of the ring.
Once the ornaments are secured around the inside and the outside, pull a ribbon through the top. This is what you’ll hang it from when you’re done.
Fill in the gaps with the larger ornaments, first, and then fill in the remaining gaps with smaller ornaments.
Voilà! A beautiful gilded ornament wreath at your service!
ps. – I used about 175 ornaments (120 small & 55 large). I know it sounds like a lot, but I like a very full and built up outcome. You can definitely use fewer ornaments and create a similar, but equally beautiful wreath.
