Here’s an easy DIY Christmas ornament wreath that combines a rustic grapevine wreath form with fancy ornaments to create a unique and charming decoration for any door this holiday season!
DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath: Rustic Meets Refined!
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?!
Ornament Wreath Examples
Here’s a look at all of the ornament wreaths I’ve made so far.
They’re just so easy to make and customize for any holiday or celebration!
- A boo-tiful Halloween ornament wreath complete with a glittery spider
- A classically fancy fall ornament wreath
- A ‘House Divided’ NFL ornament wreath
- A University of Kentucky basketball ornament wreath (Go Big Blue!)
- A springy yarn Easter Egg wreath (ok, not ornaments, but I followed the same general process)
DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath Supplies
Here’s what I used to quickly create this festive DIY Christmas ornament wreath in no time:
- Grapevine wreath form
- Variety of shatterproof ornaments
- Glitter balls vase filler
- 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, textures, and designs 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 to fill in any gaps.
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!
It’s amazing what just taking a break and stepping back to really look at your creation can do for the creative process…
How To Make An Ornament Wreath
This wreath is a PBP (Pre-Blog Project), so I unfortunately don’t have step-by-step photos showing how this festive beauty was made.
However, fear not!
In a separate post, I’ve shared alllll the details on how to make an ornament wreath that shows every step and also gives lots of helpful tips and tricks, so definitely check that out!
When I started making this DIY Christmas ornament wreath, I had initially 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 2/3rd the way 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!
Our Final DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath
And here’s how my rustic-meets-refined DIY Christmas ornament wreath looks on our front door!
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 and love how it looks on our porch every holiday season!

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
