While I was putting away Christmas, I held back some ornaments to make this wreath.
I had lots of red, some pinks, silver and gold.
Don't skimp on the garland, make it thick.
The hot glue to the garland is what holds the ornaments in place.
* I flip my wreath over, so the ornaments are naturally cradled in the wreath form.
I gathered a few ornaments.
I started with some large ornaments.
Placed them were I wanted and hot glued down.
I like to place them every which way, with the tops showing.
The last thing I added was cupid!
Here's the backside!
I can't believe it!
I dropped the wreath while I was taking a picture.
Not to worry, only one broke. It was one of the larger ornaments.
Now I can show you how to fix your wreath if it happens to you!
First clean up your mess with a dustpan and brush- yes I was barefooted!
Bring the wreath over a trash can, use pliers to break away the small pieces of glass.
I was able to find another ornament to fit in the same spot.
I will try to be more careful!
Some of the old ornaments are more delicate than others.
I would not hang this wreath on a door that is used often,
but hanging on a wall will be fine.
When storing wreaths made with Shiny-Brite ornaments it is best to lay flat.
Before re-hanging check to make share none of the ornaments are loose.
It's best to store wreath in the house- not the attic,
temperatures that are too hot or too cold can affect the glue.
I am so glad I was able to fix my broken ornament!
Thank you for hanging out with me!
