DIY LARGE Christmas Ornament Wreath
- Duct Tape
- Glue for Glue Gun
- Cool Temp Cool Gun
- Outdoor bow
- 2 Pool Noodles 5 ft
- Ornaments at least 114 2" bulbs
- Ornaments small a few packs of 12 (2) for fill
- Glue sticks for glue gun 24 small or 10 large
- Place your pool noodles together.
- Secure with duct tape.
- Repeat for the other end.
- Make sure to match the ends up perfectly before taping.
- If you are going to cover the base (the green or whatever color pool noodle you have used) affix material.
- I have done this in the midst of the project as well, really it is how comfortable you are maneuvering the wreath once you have a base layer of bulbs on.
- Personally, I would suggest doing this now, it's so much easier to work on.
- Next, place your ornaments on the interior of the wreath for a basic design.
- Also, try placing a few ornaments on and seeing how they look BEFORE you begin gluing.
- Once you start, you will do so on the top portion.
- Glue down each bulb.
- I alternated bulb top to the front and one to the middle of the wreath but this makes zero difference.
- Once you get around the whole wreath, you then begin the interior or exterior whichever you feel like working on.
- Continue all the way around, filling each area you can see with the right-sized bulb.
- Sometimes the bulbs will need to be bigger, other times smaller.
- Your eyes will be your guide I'm figuring out what bulb to affix.
- Continue this process until both the inside and outside of the wreath are covered with bulbs.
- Allow this to set up and dry overnight.
- Realizing you used hot glue and it dries rapidly, I still allow it to dry.
- Once it is set, pick it up and see if anything falls, and if it does, glue it back on.
- You can fill in any spaces with holiday embellishments such as sparkle flowers, poinsettia pieces, ribbon, tulle, etc.
- Don't forget to spray the wreath bulbs and allow to dry (if you used glitter or non-shatterproof bulbs) before you hang.
- Then, display your wreath wherever you choose on your front door, or inside the house.
Calling All Those Christmas Tree-lovers! (3)
Let’s call this project the best of upcycling with a side of Holiday Decor!
I simply can’t get enough Christmas trees in my home or exterior decor.
However, I have crafted simple Tomato Cage trees that look realistic and make decorating a breeze.
Once assembled they will last and last and last.
Use them inside or outside.
You’ll be upcycling a tomato cage and turning it into a Christmas tree.
Will you add lights?
My first set was made for my front stoop pots & since then, I keep filling orders for friends and neighbors.
Make them using 3 feet cages or 5 feet.
Light them or don’t!
These are easy and inexpensive, yet they look every bit as good as their counterparts sold for MUCH more in the retail stores!
