Shiny Brite Wreath- Red, White and Blue!

 Hi Friends,

I decided to make another Shiny Brite Ornament

Wreath today in Red, White and Blue.


I collect them throughout the year at thrift shops and garage sales.


I was thinking it would be nice to have for

Memorial Day as well as Independence Day.


I have some of my ornaments separated by color.


I was pretty sure I had enough.


I started with a wreath form, and covered it with

Tinsel Garland-

You can find it year round but I stock up after the holidays.




Ready for ornaments!

You will need a hot glue gun and lots of glue.


I set aside some other special ornaments to use.



Plug in your Glue Gun!

I started with large ornaments first

then smaller.

You can add small tuffs of garland in gaps.




Use a generous amount of glue, but not so much that it shows.

Remember: The tinsel is holding the ornament in place!


I like to rotate the wreath for balance,

Then I pick where I want the top.




Then just keep going....you will need a couple hours to complete.




Eventually you will decide when you are done!

I added a ribbon to the wreath form for hanging.






Store flat -under the bed is a good place :)

Note: Do not store your wreath in a hot place like a garage or attic.
The heat may effect the glue and ornaments could fall off and break.









Happy Memorial Day!

      It used less than I thought it would. I had more than enough set aside in the boxes. Thank you for hosting so we are able to share.

  12. This is such a great decor piece! And your mantel decor is lovely too! The ornament wreath is a great project to plan for when Christmas decor is on sale after.

    I picked this as one of my features at this weekend's Snickerdoodle Create Bake Make Link Party. Sadly, it's the very last one, but thank you so much for linking up with us! I always enjoy seeing what you're up to!
