The first step was attaching the ornaments to the wreath. Floral wire would have been ideal for this, but I didn't have that on hand, so I just used kitchen twisty ties to secure the ornaments onto the wire frame on the back of the wreath.
Then, I wrapped the ribbon loosely around the wreath and tucked it into the "branches" here and there. It was a little tricky to get the spacing right until I was happy with it. I also secured the ribbon onto the wire frame on the backside to keep it in place.
Simple, gold, and pretty! I haven't decided whether to hang it above our garage or back porch though, so you'll have to wait and see where it ends up.
And while we're DIY-ing, here's another quick and easy project. I had some clear ornaments (again, on sale from Michael's) which have been waiting since last year to be properly attired for our tree.
I just stuffed them with some various fillers like ribbon, tinsel, fake snow (with the aid of a funnel), and bead vase filler. This would probably be a fun little project for kids, too.
So those are my super-simple DIY decor projects. I'll be sharing the rest of our decorations later this week. Is it just me, or is it hard to believe Christmas is less than two weeks away?! Are your halls all decked out yet? If not, be sure to check out Kim's party for some creative inspiration!
