Christmas Craft – {Glass} Ball Ornament Wreaths

I couldn’t resist the urge……..
you know, follow the pack, copy my peers heroes.

Last year I made my first {Glass} Ball Ornament Wreath

You can buy wreaths like this with vintage glass ornament, and they’re not cheap!

If you can’t buy it….MAKE it!!

That’s EXACTLY what I did! For just under $15!AWESOME!

I didn’t have vintage glass ornaments, instead I bought shatter proof ornaments at Walmart.

This year, I started seeing these wreaths pop up all over blogland again.

Eddie Ross started the ball rolling with a fabulous idea using a WIRE HANGER!

I’m pretty sure most of us have them, we may not like them, and may not admit that we use them sometime – but I bet you have a spare wire hanger in your house! I did! **note, use a flimsy wire hanger, it’s much easier to work with!

I headed to the Dollar Tree I turned all of this
