Here’s an easy DIY Christmas ornament wreath that combines rustic with fancy to create a unique and charming decoration for any door this holiday season!

Y’all know I love me some wreaths, especially of the ornament variety, so I of course had to make one for Christmas. I mean, out of all the holidays, this one makes the most sense to have an ornament wreath for, right?!

I actually made this particular wreath last year….looong before the thought of creating a blog ever crossed my mind. Therefore, I don’t have any step-by-step pictures for you….sorry.

However, I do already have a tutorial showing how I make my ornament wreaths, and that is the same method I used to create this wreath (well, at least the bottom half of it). So, you can check that out for all the details if you’re interested!

When I started making this DIY Christmas ornament wreath, I had intended to cover the entire wreath form completely in ornaments, just as I’ve done for all my other ornament creations.

However, when I was about 2/3 into ornament coverage, I held my work-in-progress up against the wall to see how everything was coming along, and I thought “Hmmmm, that’s actually not too bad as is!”

So I decided to quit with the hot gluing and instead hung my bow at the top with some floral wire, added a small wire loop to the back, and hung this baby up!

I really like the combination of the rustic grapevine wreath form with the fancy, shiny ornaments…..it’s an interesting look, and not one that you see too often. I’m very pleased with it!

 

Supplies Used to Make This DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath

  • Grapevine wreath form
  • Large shatterproof ornaments
  • Small shatterproof ornaments
  • Vase filler (used as extra small ornaments)
  • Pre-made glitter bow
  • Floral wire
  • Hot glue gun/sticks

I used roughly 20 large shatterproof ornaments and about eight small ones. They were a variety of colors and textures, some solid and some striped as well.

The tiny little light green balls are actually a vase filler (the same ones I used for my Halloween ornament wreath) and they worked perfectly for this project too.

The red bow up top was a pre-made glittery beauty that I picked up….it saved me the time and headache of trying to make a decent one myself!

I work and belong to TEEA (Texas Extension Education Association), and as First Vice President of Leadership I am a very busy lady, but I love to craft, I do not do Face Book or Twitter as I do not have the time and I get so many e-mails a day from my association, it keeps me pretty busy after coming home from work. But I do love your crafts, and would like to continue to get them via e-mail. Thank you, Betty
