I won’t go into a full tutorial because there are already a million out there, but just for the record – I used this one.
I (obviously) went with a gold, silver, and red color theme. Honestly, this took me FOREVER. Mainly because I got tired and ache-y (thanks pregnancy) and worked on it over several
days weeks. I love how it turned out though! Here’s my quick step by step – and what I would do differently next time.
Gather your supplies. I already had the wreath form on hand but you can get the kind I used at Walmart for around $3. (And feel free to use any other kind of wreath form too. My wreath form was pretty thick and I think I ended up having to use a lot more ornaments than “normal”, which brought up the over all cost of my wreath.) I got all of my ornaments at the dollar store. I probably used around 150.
I didn’t do this next part but I would HIGHLY recommend it. BEFORE YOU GO ON TO THE NEXT STEP, wrap the wreath form in fabric, ribbon, spray paint in the color scheme you’re using, SOMETHING. I didn’t do anything to mine and am a tiny bit bummed that you can see some of the plain wreath form through the ornaments. Simply covering the wreath form in something similar to your colors/theme will avoid this mishap in the end.
ALSO, I didn’t add anything to hang my wreath with so I ended up having to fish some twine through my ornaments and around the wreath form, which was a pain. Save yourself the trouble and go ahead and add your “hanger” ahead of time.
Okay. moving on.
Start gluing your ornaments around the inside and outside areas (tops up).
