Bauble Wreath Tutorial.


This is my cheerful bauble wreath I made last year!

If you want to give this a try, you'll need a wicker wreath and a hot glue gun, but be sure to have plenty of glue sticks and baubles... you'll need maaaany of them to make a medium size wreath!



I started gluing some medium size baubles around the inner circumference...

... then continued to attach them until I filled all the gaps. You will need a lot of different sized ornaments to achieve this look.

Here it is complete!

Last year I hung it over the bed in the master bedroom, and it really spread cheer around!

Happy crafting!
Monica.

  2. This is super cute Monica! I couldn't bear to hot glue any of my vintage ornaments so I'll have to watch for some at garage sales or Hobby Lobby. I probably will make an apple green or turquoise. Maybe I should do creams and white? I think I'm going to have to make a few!

  5. What a fun tutorial. The blue really works for you Monica. I like your red bauble wreath too!

    My wreath is a simple one ... faux twigs and red berries and stays on my sweetie shop style cottage door all year round. Everyone has got so used to seeing it they don't notice it's a Christmas wreath, just a nature wreath

  10. Beautiful!!! I remember that from last year & I loved it then as much as now. Thanks for sharing the tutorial on how to make this treasure. This is not our year to do Christmas & I was not going to decorate much but, I have decided I want to have a Christmas Tea for some friends(wish you lived closer). I now have decided I am going to do a different kind of Christmas decor than the traditional theme... I am going to do a girlie Christmas I think. Sounds like fun doesn't it? Thanks for kick starting the season & making me think about what I want to do. HUGS! ~Charlene & Ms Reba

  16. Such a gorgeous wreath! The blue and silver look stunning together & I also love the textured wall you have hung it on!

  17. Love the tutorial, Monica. I never thought to use a wicker wreath, I usually use wire wreaths and I wire in the balls. (so if one breaks, you can replace it, but very time consuming to make)

    I love the blues, your wreath is a stunning piece!

    Cheers!

  18. I love it! A few years ago I bought all kinds of silver ornaments to make a wreath. I couldn't make myself glue them, they were so pretty I ended up with them on the tree instead!
