Learn how to make a gorgeous Christmas Wreath with colorful Ball Ornaments.

Last year, while wandering around Michaels craft store, I found tubes of colorful shatterproof glass-like ball ornaments. These ornaments came in a variety of color combinations, textures and sizes from small opaque globes to large, transparent balls . Some of the ornaments are shiny while others are sparkly and glittery. Perfect for a DIY Christmas Wreath.

And, I absolutely love that the ornaments are shatterproof and non-breakable. If you have little children running around your house, you won’t have to worry the ornaments breaking.


  • Wire Wreath Form
  • Shatterproof Ball Ornaments
  • Craft Wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • Glue Gun

Before you begin your wreath, take a quick look at the hangers on the ornaments. Some of mine were very loose and came out easily. If you find some of those, go ahead and hot glue them into place.

To begin your DIY Christmas Wreath, you’ll first want to cut a bunch of wire pieces, about 7-8″ long and then bend the wires in half. 

Now, take one of the folded wires and thread 3 ornaments through their hangers. Twist the wire 2 or 3 times to secure them.

Take that cluster of ornaments and secure it to the wreath frame by wrapping the wire around it tightly.

Now, just repeat making clusters and attaching them to the frame until the entire front and side of the form is covered with ornaments. 

Now that you have completed your DIY Christmas Wreath, the only thing left to do is hang your wreath. You can add a pretty ribbon or simply hang the wreath by itself on a wreath hook or hanger.

This wreath is not just for Christmas or the Holidays. Change it up for the Seasons with white and pink ball ornaments for a Valentine’s Wreath or pastel colors for Easter.

Heck, the supplies are so inexpensive, you can make a bunch of ornament wreaths. I keep mine up all year long!

    What gauge is the craft wire that you used in this project? I would love to do this and I have all the supplies without even going shopping, lol. I love this idea, I hope mine turns out as good as yours when I'm done.

    I have wire coat hangers, do you think I could possibly use 3? I was thinking of wiring them together. Hoping to get the same effect.

      Yes, you can. I have seen directions someplace on how to do it, You could probably google something like Christmas ornament coat hanger wreath directions.
