5 easy steps to get the perfect ornament wreath.
You will need: a large styrofoam wreathhot glue gun + glue sticks2 large containers of shatter-proof ornaments4 containers of miniature tree ornaments
You will use this method: Take the tops off the large ornaments and apply glue there and press them into the foam wreath.
Step 1: Start with your large ornaments and attach them 2 at a time on the top of the wreath. It is best to put them at an angle. Note: I also used the duller ornaments first.
Step 2: Attach the large ornaments along the outside edge as close together as possible.
Step 3: Repeat on the inside edge
Step 4: Fill in the large gaps with the rest of the large ornaments. i used the shiny ones on top.
Step 5: Fill in any extra gaps with the smaller ornaments. I worked from the inside out going clockwise.
Ta-da! Add a beautiful ribbon and you are ready to start decorating for the holidays!
