Christmas Ornament Wreath


I've been admiring the below picture on This is Glamorous all week. That wreath is divine. I love the clean, monochromatic look of the silver ornaments. And the mixture of matte and shiny is just so lovely. And I got to wondering, how hard would this be to make?

So I did a little online searching, and Good Housekeeping has super easy instructions on their site (along with some other DIY wreath ideas). Here's how the experts at GH recommend you make this gorgeous holiday decoration:

"Buy a straw wreath about 22 inches in diameter from the crafts store. Using 1/2 yard of white felt cut into 3-inch-wide strips, wrap each piece around the wreath, pinning to secure and overlapping the edges. Take assorted Christmas balls and attach to the felt with a low-temperature glue gun, using the smallest balls to fill in holes and gaps. This is also a great way to use older ornaments that may not look good from all angles. You can also add small stars, snowflakes, or other ornaments to give your wreath a unique look. Hang with wire, wrapped securely around "top" of wreath. (Note: You'll need to add the wire before you cover the wreath completely with ornaments.)"

even easier--hot glue the tops of the ornaments on and "string" them on a wire hanger--I just made one in under an hour.

How beautiful! I love silver decor for the holidays instead of red and green!
