I wanted one of those big Christmas wreaths that you see on those fancy houses, but I wasn’t going to spend a lot of money. So I did what any thrifty girl would do. I waited until after Christmas last year and bought the items I needed on clearance to make my wreath.
This is a large wreath you can scale this down for smaller wreath.
What you’ll need
Large wreath right (found in those craft stores)
24 unbreakable Christmas ornaments (I did 2 different complimentary colors)
2 packages of tinsel
spool of wire (needs to be thick enough to twist and hold the ornaments in place, but not so thick you can’t turn it with your hand)
This is a red and silver themes wreath. Pick the colors you love for yours.
I tried to put different ornaments around the edge so they didn’t look like symmetrical.
Add the tinsel around. My wreath had green branches on it. I hid those with the garland. You can go around a couple times if needed. Once you have the green covered, tie the end of the garland on the inside of the wreath to hide it.
To finish the wreath I hung it on the door and started adding more ornaments. This allowed me to see how the bulbs were going to hang and look when completed.
Add the garland around and around and around until you have went all the way around. Hide the ends on the inside. You can secure with wire as well.
Once you like how the wreath looks, you are done.
Make sure to tell everyone NOT to slam the door. Ornaments may fall off if you are rough on the door. They easily go back on.
