holiday-wreathCrate & Barrel’s CB2 blog had these wonderful dirrections to create your own holiday ornament wreath. We thought this could be a great way to find a use for all those miss-matched old ornaments we had laying around and a great way to re-purpose them.

Here’s the instructions from CB2 to create your own holiday ornament wreath. Hey, this would be a great project for the kids and family, too!

holiday-wreath items

1. Strong stiff wire that can be bent into a ring. We used aluminum wire gauge 20, about 55” long–due to the scale of the products in the shot, our wreath was rather large, about 28″ in diameter. A wire hanger is also a simple way to go.

2. Ornaments. We used a total of 81 ornaments. For a smaller version, we’re guessing you could make a 14” wreath with about a third of the ornaments depending on how full you wanted it.

3. Strong tape to fasten the ends of the wire ring together or, pliers to twist the ends of the wire ring together.

4. Ribbon to hang the wreath.

1. String one ornament at a time onto the wire ring, alternating colors, using smaller ones to fill in the gaps.

2. When the ring is completely covered in ornaments, fasten the ends together.

3. Use a ribbon to cover the spot where the ends are fastened together, and hang!

Tip: best not to go too large in diameter as the wreath could become too heavy and stretch out.
