A DIY Christmas Wreath

You might have come across some DIY Christmas wreaths being done all over blog land. One of the easiest tutorials I found on how to make your own Christmas wreath was over at Eddie Ross where this one was made. Just beautiful! Thrifty Decor Chic got inspired to do one of her own as well. A lovely match to her chic and lovely dining room!

My Christmas colors this year are gold with red accents. So I headed over to Walmart to buy an assortment of gold ornaments. I got a box of 24 ornaments for only $4!

Here is my lovely gold wreath.


Here is how I did it. I basically followed the Eddie Ross tutorial.

Step 1: Find yourself a wire hanger in your closet, gather (buy) some ornaments and a pretty ribbon.

Step 2: Shape your wire hanger into a circle and undo the end.


Step 3: Begin by threading the ornaments on the wire hanger.


Step 4: Once you have all your ornaments threaded through the wire hanger, you can close the ends. You will need pliers or scissors to do this. Snip off the extra wire with scissors.

Step 5: Hang your wreath with a pretty ribbon. I hung my wreath using a 3M hook.

Easy and lovely! I made two of these for two of my windows in my family room and now I am itching to make more. Maybe a pretty pink one for the Little Miss :)

Wonderful job.
Love your color choice for the year.

I tried to make one myself yesterday but I didn't have enough ornaments - blast- so I settled for a sway thingy instead!

Can't wait to see some more of your Christmas decor.
