Two years ago I rushed into TJ Maxx on Christmas Eve to buy these beautiful Shiny Brite ornaments I had been eyeing all season. I felt like waiting until after Christmas may be too big of a chance so I snagged them for 25% off and bought 5 boxes of green and red ornaments.
I typically don’t decorate with much green and red for Christmas, I like more jewel toned colors but these were so pretty…no worries, I picked up plenty of pink, purple, blue, and silver too. I had planned to make a wreath out of the green and red from the day I bought them, however, last year we were still living with Will’s parents so I didn’t decorate.
Traditionally I will not pull the first Christmas item out until Thanksgiving weekend but I wanted to start early on my wreath and I love it! I am ready to start the decorating!!
This was so easy to make and it looks like it is really expensive. To make one yourself you will need a foam wreath, hot glue gun and glue sticks, PLENTY of ornaments (I used some cheap filler ones from the craft store), and ribbon to hang.
I tied the ribbon on the wreath and picked a spot and just started gluing, placing ornaments together like a puzzle.
When you are all done you will have hot glue strands all over so I just used a hairdryer to melt them away.
I love this finished wreath and it has inspired me to use a little more traditional colors this season!
Have you started your Christmas decorating yet?!?
