Found this white swag at the thrift store and decided to get it.
I tied up bundles of 3 – 5 white/silver ornaments (thrifted of course; some vintage glass, some new shatter-proof) and tied them onto the swag. It has a nice sturdy wire form on the back, so that is what I tied the ornament clusters to.
Had to fire up my hot glue gun to attach this ‘Merry Christmas’ glitter ornament to a round ornament. Also used hot glue to glue the snowflake ornaments in place in the background.
I really didn’t follow any particular pattern for adding things. Just added a few and stood back and looked, over and over and over again! I didn’t necessarily want it to look perfectly symmetrical, rather ‘balanced’.
After all the ornaments and snowflakes were in place it still needed some ‘filler’ for the gaps between the ornaments. You can BARELY see it in the pictures, but I added about 2 dozen snippets of sheer and silver ribbon; just tied in a knot with the two ends sticking out. Hot glue again to attach these.
Trying to collect up enough ornaments to make one of those ‘big ole’ ornaments COVERED round wreaths. LOVE those things!!
