- Styrofoam wreath for base
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Ornaments in three sizes
You can hang it with a ribbon showing, or, like I did, you can hot glue a thin ribbon onto the back and hang it with that.
I'm so glad I finally got around to making one of these. I originally wanted to do it in many colors, but eventually decided the silver would be more versatile in coming years, and therefore more worth my time. It took me a little over an hour and two burn blisters to make this. But now that the blisters don't hurt and it's hanging snuggly above the mantel, I'm pretty happy with it.
P.S. This is also a great way to use old or somewhat damaged ornaments, because you can glue the damaged sides down so they aren't seen. Yay for recycling!
