How to Make a Christmas Ornament Wreath With a Wire Hanger

Delightfully Noted
by Delightfully Noted
I know what you're thinking: "Oh great, another Christmas ornament wreath tutorial," BUT my tutorial comes with a twist! I made my wreath one-handed. That's right, a glue gun in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Hazardous, perhaps, but my point is if you prefer your projects to be rather quick and much so that you can slam down a shot of tequila while working on it, then read on my friend...
These wreaths are SO easy and inexpensive to make.

All you'll need is a wire coat hanger, a glue gun, Christmas garland swag,

and some ornaments (cocktail is optional).

I found most of my ornaments at the Dollar Store. A handful of the larger red ones were given to me by my mom a few years ago. For the ornaments, you'll want to use a variety of sizes, textures, and colors. I used around 50 ornaments to complete this project.

The collage below is a step-by-step guide of how to create your own ornament wreath.
Approximately $9.00 and 30 minutes later and I've got myself a pretty and festive holiday wreath! Now go grab your glue gun (and a bottle of wine).
