I decided to embrace Christmas in Florida. The wreath is made of 214 vintage ornaments and 37 new ornaments (yes I counted as I made it lol)

By kringles this is amazing! I bet we could look and look and still find ones we hadn't seen before! And also constantly find new favorites.

Gorgeous.  Too pretty to take down after the holidays end - that is quite an ornament collection!

I just found this site about 30 minutes ago and after reading an article I found your pictures and had to create an account to say...
" This is amazing.  I love it soo much!"  What a fun way to mix the old and new and it is just absolutely PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.  I hope you hang this every year for many many years.

Welcome aboard!  There is so much to see, do, and learn on here.  The people are awesome.  And I completely agree with you about the wreath being perfect.  See you around the site!

Thanks guys.  I made it by starting with a hay wreath that I used flower pins to attach 4 rows of bulbs and then I fit in the little ones with high temp hot glue.  You have to use the high temp or it doesnt hold.

This is so full of Christmas cheer! I have been collecting vintage ornaments for a while now with the plan to make a wreath like this. I hope when I eventually get enough, my wreath will look half as good as this!

Now you just need an "I Spy" card to go with it.  Something like:  find x number of santas, find the mandolin, etc.
