Christmas Ornament Ball Wreath Tutorial

Hi Beauties! 

Its that magical time of year of again & I have created the perfect DIY project to get you in the holiday spirit! 
I had seen these gorgeous ornament wreaths on various crafting websites such as Pinterest, and also in department stores for nearly $40! 
I knew I could create my own version at home for less, so I headed out to the Dollar Tree and Michaels craft store to pick up supplies.
I decided to go with gold and champagne for my wreath colors, as these shades will still work well with my decor in the later winter months. This was such a fun craft project and way more simple than I was expecting! Hope you Enjoy.
Here are the steps to create your own:

Christmas  Ornament Ball Wreath


- 80+ Ball Ornaments in varying sizes, colors, patterns
(I purchased all of mine at Dollar Tree for around $12 total)

- Wire Hanger ( untwisted & bent into a circle)

- Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
(to glue ornament caps to the ball base so they are secure before threading)

- Decorative Ribbon
(to cover up the wire hanger at the top of the wreath)

- Aluminum Foil & Scissors
(foil to place glue gun on. scissors to cut open ornament packaging easily)

Once you have gotten all of your supplies together, you can begin creating your gorgeous wreath! :) I have created an easy step by step tutorial video for you to follow here:

Total cost of this DIY was only $20.00! & total crafting time was 2 hours.
Here are some photos of the end result! These wreaths are so beautiful and festive once finished!
