DIY Silver & Gold Ornament Wreath {Wordless Wednesday}

Ok, semi-wordless. This isn’t a tutorial, though I did DIY this, but you can read the full instructions over on Eddie Ross’ site.

Quick tidbits:

-I used about 72 ornaments (all from Dollar Tree)

-It took me about 1.5 hours from start to finish.

-Yes, you MUST glue the caps onto the ornaments. I skipped that step a few years ago when I made one of these…never again.

-A low temp glue gun from Walmart is your friend. LOVE MINE. It’s about $4.

-Total cost for my wreath was about $10.

-It’s hanging using a $4 black satin sash I bought at Walmart years ago in the wedding section.

-Make sure to choose a variety of sizes/finishes for a really snazzy wreath.

-Hanging it on a mirror doubles the light and glitter…I highly recommend it!

It looks beautiful in the daytime:

And at nighttime:
