Saw it, Pinned it, Did it!

I am so excited to link up with Katie & Steph for Saw it, Pinned it, Did it!

I was browsing Pinterest way over a year ago and found a pin with an adorable ornament wreath! I wasn't a "pinner" then so I just followed the tutorial and made a very teeny tiny ornament wreath. So small it looked ridiculous on my door and I ended up dropping it one night and breaking the whole thing! #fail

So this year I decide to do it right, I found one of the original pins and crafted away!

Original Pin:

How I did it...
You need:
-wire clothes hanger
-hot glue gun
-large pack of christmas ornaments 
-ribbion 
-wine what? wine? no, not me!

1. Take the wire hanger and make a circle! Once its all circle-y undo the top!

2. Hot glue the tops of the ornaments so when they are on the wire they tops don't pop off!

I used a ton of ornaments, in all different sizes! I got them from hobby lobby and spent a total of about $6!

3. At this point just start stringing the ornaments on the wire! Try and use a pattern but then again anything will look good!
There isn't much skill to this, just put 'em on!

4. Once you have used all the ornaments or reached the end of the circle, re-twist the hanger back together. You can leave the rounded hanger part at the top to hang it from a door hanger or to attach the ribbon to!

Ta-Da!!!
Did it. 
Some of them fall weird once they're back in the circle, if something doesn't look right you can always add a a little hot glue here and there to hold certain ones into place!



I am so in love with this and I am serious when I say it will be the first thing I hang up in our new home! 

Happy Pinning and crafting dolls!
