Christmas Ornament Wreath


Who says wire hangers are tacky? I used a free hanger from the dry cleaners and dollar store ornaments to make this simple and dazzling holiday wreath. I want to try making another one in the future using only vintage ornaments.

Supplies:
  • one wire hanger
  • glue gun
  • 65-80 round ornaments (small sizes are helpful when filling gaps)



  1. Take your hanger and bend it into the form of a circle.
  2. Grab your glue gun and secure the metal/plastic cap to the ornament with a little dab of hot glue. That way the ornaments won't fall off as you string them onto the hanger, I learned this the hard way. 
  3. String the ornaments onto the hanger and have fun playing around with the different colors. If you don't like the configuration it's easy to fix. 
  4. Once you have everything how you want it, simply re-twist the end of the hanger to close. I camouflaged the hook end of the hanger by wrapping it in the same color as the ribbon and bow. 


I found this site after starting my wreath, you may find it helpful.
