Tutorial: Ornament Wreath

My First Tutorial
This adorable Ornament Wreath makes a great gift or holiday decoration. It's fun and easy to make and will really get your creative juices flowing. Have fun!

Materials:

1. A glue gun and plenty of glue!
2. A wire wreath. You can find several sizes at a craft store like Michael's
3. Lots of different colors, shapes and sizes of ornaments!
4. Optional: Your Mom, Starbucks, and Christmas Music!

Steps:


1. Pick your colors!
2. Begin laying them out to see how everything will fit together.
3. Start gluing! Get creative!
4. Add extras! Fill in the holes with smaller ornaments, bells, ribbon, you name it! I used a small silver bird on mine!


Viola!
My finished product!

Mom's finished product!

Well? What do you think? Cute? Tacky? Fun? Creative? Boring? Tell me your opinions! And if you try it out yourself, I'd love to see some pictures and hear some stories!

MELISSA! Those are amazing :) I can't believe you made that. I've seen them around, but never saw someone actually make them. That's so neat!
