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!
