I've seen all of the cool ornament wreaths on Pinterest but I wanted to be different . I wanted to make mine of our family's last name which starts with an H.
I went, measured the front door where I want to hang it, and sketched it out for my hubby who so nicely cut it out of a piece of very thin plywood(1/4").
I had been hanging on to some old glass Christmas ornaments for years that I bough to go outside on a tree but that didn't happen either.
I just started gluing on different sizes and colors, stacking them until it started looking full and the way I wanted it to. I did take off the little hanger "crowns" that were on the top of all of the ornaments. When you need to glue them top down, it makes it a whole lot easier.
My hubby helped me drill some tiny holes into the plywood and ran framing wire through it and voila!
Our family initial on the front door for Christmas!
I'm kinda excited as this is the first wreath I have ever made and first thing I have hung on this front door since we moved in almost six years ago. Please don't send the empty door police after me, I'm trying to get better! Remember I had an empty mantel for years and now mantels are fun for me!
