Easy Christmas Wreath


I've seen these Christmas wreaths in stores and online and love them.  Wanted to buy one but they are quite pricey!  Before shelling out big bucks, I stumbled across this!

Turns out they're super easy to make...





After gluing several according to Eddie's directions, I discovered a short cut.  Just squirt a blob of hot glue directly on the metal/tin attachment!  No need to pull it apart ~ how easy is that?!



I hung this one on our guest cottage door...


And made another for above our fireplace...



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I've seen that same tutorial on Pinterest. Isn't it sickening how expensive these are sold for and how ridiculously easy they are to make?! You did a wonderful job! :)

Too cute! I haven't made coat hanger wreathes in forever and never with the balls. I'm not even sure we have any wire hangers here!
