Oh Christmas... Craft!

Now, I'll be the first to tell you. I'm not really crafty. I'm crafty in the way that I can follow directions. If I see something cool online, I can USUALLY follow the directions in order to achieve the finish product! Which is what happened when I saw a Christmas ball wreath. I would never in a million years have thought to do it myself. But it was easy, and cute, and there are a million different ways to make one. I used the " wire coat hanger method" because well, I forgot to get a foam wreath at Hobby Lobby, and I refused to go back for the 1000th time that week! I bought all my ornaments at the Dollar Tree, so this cost me $12, but it could have been $10, because I didn't use all my balls!:)

Because I didn't really care about placement, I just put all the big balls on, then hot glued the smaller balls in the holes. It worked out pretty well. I do have some colors that are right next to each other, but oh well, I like it that way! There are a ton of tutorials on how to do this online, just google search Christmas ornament wreath tutorial. You'll find a few different ways, and one is sure to strike your fancy.
