Sorry--It has been FOREVER since I posted!
We have had a rough few weeks as of late. My Father in Law passed away a few weeks ago--so I haven't had the time, nor did I feel like posting. But we are doing better and I did just complete a fun project with a friend the other day that I am IN LOVE WITH! So I thought I would share it.
It is nothing new to blogger land. In fact you have probably seen them EVERYWHERE.
So I went to the dollar store and picked up some round plastic ornaments. Then my awesome friend Tiffany and I hot glued all the tops onto the ornaments so they wouldn't pop off during construction.
Here's Tiff wielding her gun:
And of course I didn't remember to take any other pictures of us assembling the wreath--I was just too darn excited about how it was coming together. But the gist of it is that you unwind a wire coat hanger--or find some thicker gauge wire and shape it into a circle. Then you string the ornaments onto the wire.
You just keep adding ornaments and try and cluster them how you like them by rotating them around the wire. It is important to do the positioning of them while you go as they get much harder to move when they are all sandwiched together.
You finish stringing them till you have the desired size you want. Then you twist the ends of the wire together at the top and add a bow and a loop for hanging.
And this is what it will look like:
I hung it on the side of my entry way and then decided I really wanted it on my door. So I went and bought a wreath hanger and so then it looked like this:
And as a bonus--my door now closes!
And by hanging it on the door--I was able to do a little more decorating.
Do you remember this little tree from HERE?
Well--I think it looks SO CUTE all deocrated with some more dollar store ornaments.
All the ornaments and ribbon and everything cost me about $8 at the dollar store. And it was such a quick and easy project to do. Honestly--the hardest part of the whole project was finding a wire coat hanger! So if anyone has any wire coat hangers hanging around--I may be able to make some more of these babies!
