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

Ornament wreath at TidyMom.net
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

    Yours turned out so pretty! I made one in similar colors, but it's starting to droop a little.

    They're both completely gorgeous! For those near an Ikea, I picked up huge bags of ornaments in the Ikea scratch & dent area for super cheap not too long ago. They have great deals on ball ornaments in general, too.

    Beautiful! I have seen these around (like you said), but I just love the uniqueness of each of them…different colors, sizes of bulbs, style, etc. I would really love to make one with purples and silvers since I'm a huge fan of those colors! Thanks so much for sharing this great craft for the Christmas Bash! Hope to "see" you Friday! ;)

    I agree that wreaths can be quite pricey. And I do love these ball wreaths. I'd definitely like to try this project!

    I love your wreath! I didn't see the red decorated balls there– you were lucky, they're awfully cute!
    Your blog is so beautiful and your pictures are perfect!
    Happy Holidays!

    I just saw some ornaments at Walmart that I fell in love with. Now I know what I can do with them. Good thing they are open late so I can run back and get them.

  1. […] Christmas wreath took about 20 minutes to make. My friend Cheryl at Tidy Mom made a similar wreath using a wire coat hanger which I would have done if I didn’t already have this styrofoam […]
