Mini Ornament Wreath

First of all, sorry for the odd-colored horrible pictures...it's what I could manage until my SLR (which is all fixed, HOORAY!) makes it home early next week.

A couple weeks before Christmas I saw this post ad really, REALLY liked the way it looked. However, I don't live anywhere near a Tai Pan (sigh) so I had to make due with what I could find. In the week after Christmas, I found some boxes of these tiny glass ball ornaments at Target for 50% off and I bought what I hoped was enough to cover a floral foam wreath. First, I spray painted the foam wreath metallic gold so that any gaps between the ornaments wouldn't be as conspicuous. Next, I used a scewdriver to make a hole in the foam big enough to fit the top, column part of the ornament in, filled it up with hot glue, and held the ornament in until the glue had hardened a bit. I tried to stagger them a bit so that same colors weren't next to each other an that the maximum amount of wreath was covered. When it is hanging, almost one of the paint shows. I love how heavy it is...and how good it will look hanging from a big red ribbon next year...

I found this tutorial a few months ago, and I was thinking about trying it.

Oh, it looks like the link isn't right anymore...but the person used a wire hanger and strung the ornaments on there.

Thanks for sharing the link, ladies!! I saw another post from a gal who followed Eddie's tutorial here (http://j-a-girl.blogspot.com/2009/11/just-one.html) and I love it, too, but I liked the look of the tiny balls. Maybe bext year I'll do a couple of these with the bigger ones...They look a lot easier than mine!!!

I love buying Christmas stuff after Christmas for 75% off or more - it's the only time I buy the stuff. That and yard sales and thrift stores.
Cute wreath. Is it too late to find some ornaments on sale now?
:~D

Okay, that is really gorgeous! Wow! Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card, as well. We're settling in to a maternity leave routine... and I finally managed to get some more pictures posted.

It's beautiful! Nice work! And for the record...because I am so bad at sending cards (or anything for that matter) in the mail, THANK YOU for sending my Scentsy Candle and the beautiful handmade hanging pillow. We love them both! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
