Tips for Making a DIY Christmas ornament wreath
While this wreath is so simple to make, there are a few problems you may run into while you’re putting this Christmas craft together. Consider these easy tips when making your own wire hanger Christmas wreath:
- Use needle-nose plyers. To turn a wire hanger into a wreath, you must untwist the top of the hanger to open it up. Although it’s possible to untwist a wire hanger using your fingers, the process is so much easier when you use needle-nose plyers. Simply grab the end of the twist with your plyers, then pull the two pieces apart to easily open up the hanger to add your globe ornaments.
- Use your hot glue gun. It’s so simple to put the Christmas globes on this ornament. It’s not so simple to keep them in place. Make sure your globes stay where you want them to by adding a drop of glue to the wire hanger. Then, move the ornament into place and hold it there until the glue sets. Your hot glue gun will also come in handy if any of your ornaments come off their hanger. If the top piece pops of your globe ornament as you string it onto the wire hanger, add a drop of glue to the top of the ornament before you put it back on. That way, it’s sure to stay in place for good.
- Use ornaments of various sizes. Putting this wire hanger wreath together is like piecing together a puzzle. And the ornament puzzle will fit together much better if it’s made up of a variety of sizes. Use small, medium, and large ornaments in your wreath, alternating between sizes to create a varied look.
- Use ribbon and flowers to hide the flaws. When you’re finished decorating your wire hanger with ornaments, the top of the wreath isn’t going to look pretty. To hide the top of the hanger and any bare spots, use ribbon and flowers. On top of adding a nice finishing touch to your wreath, these decorative elements will also help hide the flaws underneath.

Pin to save for later
Love your wreath and have been making my own for the 30 years except last year. I purchased a douglas fir that was 45.00 for six dollars. I wanted it to match and smell like my douglas fir Christmas tree. One year I made an apple scent wreath and forgot to shellac it so I had to get rid of it. I found in love with and v shaped wreathed and decided it would stay until Valentines day. Of course it was read garland, flowers, and other things accented it. I have some broken and extra ornaments that I will use but I might have to use two hangers together with my gorilla glue before actually putting the bulbs on it. I will let my valentine wreath hand somewhere in my small castle.
