Shiny Brite Valentine Wreath

Hi Friends!


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.


I covered a heart shaped wreath form with Tinsel garland.

I found both items at the Dollar Tree.




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!














OH NO!
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.

OKAY- 
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!

    1. Hi Gloria,
      Thank you so much. The tinsel came from Dollar Tree.
      I also found tons at Walmart after Christmas sale.
      For my size form I used 2 packages for a total of 100 FT.
      I hope that helps.

      I'm glad I inspired you to make one. Yes, you can start collecting ornaments here and there and before you know it- you will have enough and
      it will come together.

  14. Gorgeous wreathe. I think the pinks of old Christmas ornaments are one of the most beautiful colors--like the pinks of roses! Very nicely done.

  22. This wreath is gorgeous! I have been admiring it at link up parties all week long. The idea of using vintage ornaments that come together so nicely for something other than Christmas is just so awesome. PLUS some good tips in here. I picked this wreath as one of my features at this week's Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Link Party, which goes live today at 5pm EST.
