Updated on June 4, 2013

Step 1: Bend Wire or Coat Hanger

Take an old wire hanger and bend it into a circular shape.

Step 2: Thread Ornaments or Decoration

Start at one end and thread ornaments through the wire circle. Try and alternate colors and shapes to match your Christmas theme. Decorations and other items can be used for variants on the theme. Consider stringing flowers in Spring or attaching small toys for a children's party.

Step 3: Bond your Wire

Once you've threaded all of your ornaments, twist the ends of the hanger or wire back into a hook so that you can hang your wreath.

Step 4: Completing your Wreath

Add a ribbon to the top and voila!








Fun variations

  • Create two ornament wreaths and connect them with ribbons to hang from the front door.
  • Create ornament wreaths in seasonal colors for other holidays (green for St. Patty's day, pink for Valentine's Day, etc)
  • Create an ornament wreath with your favorite team colors for a sports party.

      Hello Thrifty Lady!!! Welcome to hubpages you are off to a great start. I love this hub, even though Christmas is passt I can see the technique being used for Easter and for 4th of July. My family are all huge crafter type people... so I will share this link with my sisters. In the meantime if you have any questions about hubpages, etc. please just let me know! Again, welcome!
