I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I had the best partner in the Make a Friend Swap, Helena Puck. She has several ornament wreaths pinned so I decided to make her one with no traditional Christmas colors. I love making these kinds of wreaths. They are so much fun.

I love multi colored Christmas decor! Did you wire the balls to a form & did it take long to make? This is so great!

I used a foam wreath and started with the outer layer, then worked my way in. I stuck the ornaments in the wreath with the "pointy" side (that holds the hook) and then filled the hole with glue and stuck the ornament back in. After that, I started stacking the ornaments on top of eachother, filling in any gaps, again using glue. I only glued the points where the ornaments touched.

I have made one with glass ornaments and one with plastic. If you are going to use hot glue, be careful because the glue will melt the plastic ornaments. I suggest using E6000, especially if you are going to use it outside.

I would say the whole thing from start to finish takes maybe an hour, hour and a half. It is is a very easy project with big results. If you use E6000, the time is longer because you have to hold the ornaments in place to allow them to set. I would say double the time if that is the case.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love this! I picked up a bunch of plastic ornaments in similar colors last year at a thrift store, but have been kind of chicken to start.  Thanks for the advice on the glue, as I want mine to go on the fence where it will be exposed to the elements.

So bright and cheerful, and I love the little disco balls! I've got to try to make one of these this year, especially since it's so quick, a whole wreath in an hour? Gotta love that. Great job, Pam!

I really like the balance you've achieved in the look of this wreath, between the large and small balls. The symmetry in it appeals to me very much.
