This month is flying by and I feel like it has been a frenzy of activity trying to keep up. I am sure so many of you feel that way this time of year. My daughter comes home for Winter break Tuesday for a month so I am trying to get everything done beforehand. I want to be able to just spend time chilling with both my kids over the Holidays. I just shared my Holiday Mantle here and wanted to give you a quick and easy tutorial for the DIY Christmas Ball Ornament Wreath as part of my Craft Corner project with Michelle James Designs .

The gorgeous copper colors of this Ornament Wreath just makes me giddy! I am all about metallics this year and this wreath fits in perfectly. Here is what you need to make one of your own:
50 Count Ornament Balls (Mine are from Hobby Lobby)
Foam Wreath (The Dollar Tree)
I wanted to ensure none of the green Wreath base showed so I tore some neutral scrap fabric in long strips and hot glued it to the wreath. I just use glue on the initial end, wrap it around and glue the end. Next, take the gold or silver Ornament hanger off the balls. It is easier to get the balls to attach without them, plus you don’t want them to show. I started glueing the ornament to the wreath base by the tip on the outside first. Excuse the Pinecones in this picture, I just finished my pinecone Kissing Ball and those things are messy!
I also added hot glue to each side so they would adhere together. I did 3 rows ensuring it was even all the way around. You can use all different color combinations and get as creative as you want, but I liked the three different textures showing up.
I just love how it looks above the mantle centered on a gold leaf mirror hung with a beautiful wired ribbon. Wasn’t that a quick and easy Wreath? What colors would you use for your Ornament Wreath?
