One of the other little crafts I’m making for some friends that celebrate Christmas is ornament wreaths.
They are really easy to make – all you need is floral stem wire (I used 26ga), scissors, ornaments, a wire wreath form, and garland. :
First, I just tied one end of the garland to the wreath form with floral wire, then wound the rest of the garland around & around & around the form. I secured the other end of the garland to the form, and that part was all done.
The garland hides the wreath form and all the wiring for securing the ornaments (and it just looks nice).
Next, I took the ornaments one by one and put a length of floral wire through the hanging loop of the ornament:
…and pushed the two ends of the wire through the wreath form:
…and twisted those ends 4-6 times, then cut off the extra with scissors. Next I bend the ends back just the tiniest bit so that they can’t scratch anyone:
I’m looking forward to giving these to some of my friends who celebrate Christmas!
